Facing the music after recently dropping the N-word on Twitter, West Coast rapper Kreayshawn has continued to address its controversy and why fans should not expect her to drop the bomb on a record.
While Kreayshawn claims to never use the term in music, she admits her sister frequently drops the N-bomb.
“I never said it in any of my music,” Kreayshawn promised in an interview. “Ever. [You heard it in my music video?] It might have been my sister, V-Nasty ’cause she says it all the time. That’s just because she grew up all different. Like, she goes in and out of jail for armed robbery all the time. Like, her mom calls her that. So that’s her stuff. Personally, I don’t say it in my music. It’s not my place but you know, that’s her.” (All Hip Hop)
A few days ago, the rapper said “n*gga” is a common expression used by multiple races around her Oakland hometown.
“If I’m freestyling and I said it, that’s just for that point in time. Any songs I’m writing I don’t use it,” Kreayshawn said about the “N-word”. “In Oakland, Asian people will call Mexicans that. A Mexican will call a black dude that. A white person will call an Asian that. Everyone calls each other that. I feel like that word is used in the low-income community more than anything. I can see if I was some rich crazy trick and I was just saying this because it’s hip-hop. I was raised around this. Me and my sisters were all raised around this. People call me that. But personally I’m not flaunting it around.” (Voice Online)
In May, Kreayshawn caused some tensions to flare after dropping the N-Bomb on Twitter.
“People are actin so funny omg lol… I got 200k views… not 200k dollars… WTF YOU WANT FROM A N*GGA?! *DMX VOICE*,” she tweeted May 20th. (Kreayshawn’s Twitter)
Last year, white rapper Yelawolf asked his fans to stop using the controversial term.
“Be respectful and don’t drop the N-Bomb,” Yela added. “White boys out there dropping the N-Bomb, stop, please. You’ll never, ever, ever be able to say it. It’s never going to be cool, just stop. Don’t drop it in your music, don’t drop it around people, don’t drop it to me on Twitter. I see those white boys on Twitter dropping the N-Bomb on me and I’m like, ‘Dude? I’m not even gonna respond to you.’ Like, chill out. You’re never that cool.” (XXL Mag)
