Kreayshawn to Direct Red Hot Chili Peppers Video
Kreayshawn has a knack for creating visuals, ever since the age of 10, and she’s sharing her talents with the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The 21-year-old ‘Gucci Gucci’ creator has been tapped to direct the band’s video for ‘The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie,’ the first single off their forthcoming album, ‘I’m With You.’
MTV reports that the respective labels each act is signed to — Kreayshawn to Columbia, Chili Peppers to Warner — confirmed the news. While little information has been given regarding what the clip will look like or its premise, chances are it will be up to par, considering the pint-sized, tattooed mic holder is a former Berkeley Film School student and has directed visuals for the likes of West Coast rapper Lil B.
Before she was recognized for her unique spin on the rhyming word, Kreayshawn was set on standing behind the camera. “Well, I had the little cameras and stuff. I have all these videos of me [saying], ‘I’m gonna do a documentary on men,’ and then film all the guys in the house and be like, ‘They got hairy feet,'” she tells the BoomBox. “S— like that. I’ve been pretty smart with the visionaries. I went to Berkeley Film School. I always want to take classes. I don’t think I have enough time to enroll into a whole commitment like that. I’m always down to learn.”
Kreayshawn will embark on a new tour commencing in August, where she’ll perform her brand-name blasting track ‘Gucci Gucci’ as well as her new song, ‘Rich Whores.’ Check the Bay Area artist’s tour dates below.
