As the tension between her and Miami rap star Rick Ross begin to die down, West Coast hip-hop newcomer Kreayshawn reflects on what she learned from a short-lived beef with “The Boss”.
For Kreay, she believes her newfound star power ultimately fueled their issues.
“I definitely learned a good lesson on, you know, ’cause what I said about him wasn’t like, I don’t have any problem with him, you know what I’m saying,” Kreay said in an interview. “I’ve listened to his music. He’s Rick Ross, he’s a boss. You know what I’m saying? I never had a problem with him, it’s just me goofing off with my friends and taking it too far. And if I was nobody, it wouldn’t have even mattered but now that I have the star power — it’s a big deal. It’s definitely taught me to watch what I’m saying at certain times. Especially saying stuff that you don’t really mean, joking off with your friends. Every day is a learning process and everything happens really fast. So it’s definitely quick learning.” (Soul Culture UK)
In September, Kreay reacted to Ross saying he wanted to meet face-to-face.
“I think the XXL thing came out before our VMA and all that tidy up stuff. So it’s just wrong timing and it’s just bleeding into more stuff. A magazine takes like two months or something [to produce]. This is a non-event. There is water under that bridge and the river is passed. I’ve read the Bible and what I’ve done shall be forgiven.” (Tim Westwood TV)
A week prior, Kreay said she spoke to Ross affiliate DJ Khaled and ironed out their public feud.
“No, I bought DJ Khaled a couple steaks and we worked everything out,” Kreayshawn said in an interview. “As far as that, nothing’s popping off. It’s just a little rough patch at the VMAs, but we got all over it. It’s all over now…I feel like a comedienne at times, because I’m a funny down to earth person — So some things that I do and say get read wrong because I’m not some label chick that randomly made it.” (Urban World TV)
In an excerpt from the October XXL Magazine issue, Ross aired out Kreay over recent disses from her.
He even threatens Kreayshawn, the fledgling Bay Area rapper who called Ross “fake” in a recent freestyle. “I can’t wait to slap the sh*t out of whoever carries her bags,” he sneers. “And I hope it’s her n*gga. Dirty b*tch. You better know the f*ck you talking about. I’ll pay 50K to mess up your whole week.” (Karen Civil)
