With West Coast newcomer Kreayshawn continuing to generate a strong buzz courtesy of her “Gucci Gucci” single, SOHH decided to hit up none other than Gucci Mane himself to get his take on the Oakland spitter.
Co-signing what he has seen of Kreayshawn thus far, Gucci said he is ready to lock-in with the rapper for a collaboration.
“I think she hard,” Gucci told SOHH when asked what he thinks about the West Coast newcomer. “She’s got it. I seen a couple [of her videos] on the Internet and I think she goes hard. I could see us [hooking up musically] in Atlanta. Definitely. I would love to work with her.” (SOHH)
Her “Gucci Gucci” track has also caught Lil Wayne’s attention, who freestyled over its instrumental earlier this summer.
In the meantime, fans of “Gucci Gucci” can hear Lil Wayne rapping over the track on his “Sorry 4 the Wait” mixtape, which hit the Web last week. Kreayshawn says she was “very flattered” from the rap giant using her track, and that she first heard about the remixed track from an unlikely source. “One of the first people who called me and told me about it was my grandpa,” says Kreayshawn. “He’s like, ‘Yeah, Wayne’s rapping over your beat. I think he’s dissing you! Is Wayne dissing?’ And I’m like, ‘Oh, what? I gotta hear this.’ So I listened to it and I’m like, ‘No pop-pop, it’s a mixtape!’ It’s an honor to me… I’m excited that [Wayne] noticed and I’m able to get some of his fans to listen to the original version and they like me too.” (Billboard)
In June, Kreayshawn admitted she broke rap mogul Diddy’s heart by signing a deal with Columbia instead of his Bad Boy Records label.
“He hit me and he was mad about the whole signing thing. He was like, ‘Yo, I wanted to work with you, blah, blah blah,’ ” Kreayshawn recalled. The upstart rapper went on to reveal an amusing tidbit to the Bad Boy mogul. “Honestly, I’ve always had a picture of you next to me and my kindergarten picture,” Kreay recalled telling him. “I always put it on my wall, and I tell people, ‘That’s my dad. P. Diddy’s my dad.’ And he was like, ‘Yo, I have to adopt you.'” (MTV)
Outside of music, the rapper recently killed dating speculation surrounding her and Young Money’s Drake.
“No, that’s not my boo thing,” Kreay laughingly said in an interview. “We’re cute. Like I said, me and him, we’re both cute. We could be cute. But, I’m not trying to snatch Rihanna’s [boo] or nothing like that. You know, I don’t know if the rumors is true, I’m a busy woman anyway…People are already tweeting the ‘Drake and Kreayshawn, uh-oh, Rihanna’s with him.’ I’m like, people can’t be friends? Whatever. He cute. I’m cute. I just feel like me and him relate a lot just from coming up quick…” (“Mina Say What”)
