Around this time last year Kreayshawn had the whole music community buzzing. Millions of views on her video, magazine articles, features on MTV, shows, tours etc. Not to mention all the controversy around her and the White Girl Mobb dropping n-bombs. Well I just read that she just set a record for lowest album sales on a major label EVER (3,900 in the first week, on Columbia Records). I’m not pointing this out to make fun of her misfortunes. I’ll never ever cosign her as being a dope rapper (and plenty of suckas did cosign her- yeah that’s some sucka shit straight up), but even though I think she was overhyped I’m sure she was just doing what she loves and there’s nothing wrong with that. I pointed it out to show how shallow & insignificant all those industry accomplishments can be. Most of her fans are sheep (and if you readin this and getting mad, if the shoe fits…), who hopped on “Gucci Gucci” because it was the next hot thing but when the time came to go out and support her, they didn’t. Most rappers would give their left nut to get a million youtube views, songs with 2Chainz, a record deal, and a shallow hit single that had all the sheep jockin ‘em. But if you ask me, that music failed because it’s not timeless. It was designed to be a catchy, temporary hit single. And soon enough there will be another internet sensation to take her place. So what I’m saying is, if you’re an artist- musician, painter, writer, whatever- make sure you put your heart into what you’re doing. Don’t put your art out there with the hopes and expectations of these shallow industry rewards because in the end, that will leave you and your music feeling just as empty.
