Kreayshawn Explains Drug Dealing, Pimping Past
In the interview, the pint-sized ‘Gucci Gucci’ rapper, who appears to have escaped her short-lived beef with Rick Ross, discusses her partner V-Nasty‘s controversial usage of the N-word, her meteoric rise to fame, her issues with Compton rapper Game and how she’d like to “slap a grown-ass man in the face.”
“Why do I keep getting dissed and gotta ignore it like nothing is going on?” she inquires, in reference to Game’s ‘Uncle Otis‘ diss, in which he threatens to “put the ‘K’in your face.”
“I wanna slap a grown-ass man in the face,” the diminutive East Oakland rapper fantasizes, before plotting a more non-violent form of retaliation. “I’m going to say, ‘Game’s a weak ass Blood, he ain’t about to do s—.’ … Am I just supposed to get dissed every day and be a weak ass little white b—-? F— that s—. I’m tired of people disrespecting me.”
While she refuses to apologize for her choleric White Girl Mob partner V-Nasty, she does concede in the interview that she is attempting to diminish her “sister’s” usage of the N-Word. “I’ve sat down and had talks with her, like, ‘Please, if you took this word out of your vocabulary, it would help your career. It would really help mine,’ Kreayshawn tells Complex.”
Elsewhere in the lengthy interview, Kreayshawn delves into her drug dealing, Craigslist-pimping past, revealing the various criminal measures she took to pay her rent, before her ‘Gucci Gucci’ video blew up. “I was driving around in a pink Mustang at two in the morning, no license, with like two 15s in the trunk, serving knots,” she recalls. “Then these girls I met, they were on their hustle, too. They brought me this new idea, it was safer than selling drugs. I posted the links for them, took the anonymous pictures, and set up the dates and prices.”
Her Craigslist pimp hustle was quickly thwarted, however, when “more experienced” Oakland pimps took over. Luckily, a seven-figure deal with Columbia Records came shortly after.
“I never made anything with the intention of signing a record deal. It was just for fun. The moment I realized I could get a record deal, was when I got a record deal. I didn’t see myself getting famous,” she concludes. “People say, ‘You’re changing the game.’ I’m just being me. This is what I’ve been doing.”
