NATASSIA A.K.A. KREAYSHAWN
MUSICIAN | DJ | THAT ONE WHITE GIRL THAT DOES THE GUCCI GUCCI SONG
Kreayshawn most known for her smash single “Gucci Gucci” back in 2011, has been up to a lot since then. She dropped an amazing album, toured all across the world, and had a baby. After, “Gucci Gucci” dropped I had to know who Kreayshawn was. I immediately fell in love with her music, I was even blessed with a follow back on twitter. I hit Kreayshawn up for an interview and here we are. I caught up with Kreay on what she’s been up to, the earthquake last night, and more.
Saddest Bae: What’s up Kreay?
Kreayshawn:Nothing much. It’s 10am. I just put the baby down for a nap. I really wanna have some cereal but, there’s not enough milk. So, I will just do this interview.
SB: I heard that you’re playing your “last show” in Iowa. Is it really your last show? why?
K: I wouldn’t bet that it’s truly my last show but, I usually never like performing. I did on my last tour The Group Hug tour. That was a lot of fun but, I get really bad anxiety and before a show it is the worst. If I know I have a big show coming I can start feeling the anxiousness even a month before the show. Which makes me really anxious on the plane and so fourth. So, me not performing in over a year and knowing my next show is at a stadium it gives me MAJOR panic. LOL! But, whatever I rock when I’m up there. I just hate that adrenaline feeling before.
SB:What have you been up to since dropping your debut album?
K: Man I dropped my album in 2012! That was so long ago. After my album I went on tour then after the tour I found out I was with child. So, I just chilled the whole time I was preg. It was nice to just eat and sleep for a couple months. I launched my Jewelry colab and partnership with OK1984. I started making the next line too. It’s pretty dope.
SB:How are you, Two stacks, and baby Desmond?
K: We are good. It’s very interesting being a family. I say and do things I never thought I would even care about. Like getting a deal on new laundry soap.. like I am a real mom now. Desmond is really advanced and taller then average according to the doctor. That’s nice.
SB: Do you want to have more kids in the future?
K: I def wanna have a girl one day. I would for sure have another baby.
SB: Any music coming soon?
K: I have been working on some stuff and I was doing pretty well at managing my time and getting a few songs done but, I fell off again and got distracted. I recorded a few songs all with Dez sitting on my lap LOL. One’s called Life Under Construction and I really like it. It’s about how life is always rebuilding and you gotta make due with your situation because Life is Weird. LOL.
SB: You dress so kawaii and cute, Who are you favorite designers?
K: I mean, most of my Kawaii attire came from so many places. Recently I been wearing O-mighty Weekend and United Couture. But, never under estimate a plain white cropped tee and some jeans. That’s usually what I like to wear.
SB: Your collaboration with OK1984 was so perfect, you’re dropping more jewelry this year, tell me about it.
K: The new stuff I’m doing is a series inspired by ‘Cute’. A 3-chain necklace with 2 charms and a variation of languages saying ‘Cute’. Bonita, Kawaii and an arabic one. Also there is going to be chokers. I had been stressing the chokers for over a year now. Happy they are coming now. + adding in some new faces to the basic emoji inspired necklaces I have been selling.
SB: You’re a professional gamer, as I’ve seen on your Twitch account, What’s your favorite game?
K: I really like Katamari Damacy and Parappa games. I am partial to rhythm games. I love the Wii U because, they def make the kawaii games. Super Mario 3-D world is a really intoxicating game to me. I love it.
SB: While on Twitch last night there was an earthquake, How was that? You seemed scared lol.
K: OMG! Yes, I was scared as hell. I am so happy my reaction was recored. It was funny. There’s the moment when you feel the shake and your like OMG..this is a earthquake. Then the second OMG was like WOW this is REALLY a earthquake. There was one like last week and it was a 3.5 or something and that was the biggest one I felt till’ this one that was a 5.1 which was huge and scary and I grabbed my baby. LOL
(KREAY REACTING TO THE EARTHQUAKE)
SB: A lot of female artists are dropping albums this year, Who are you most excited for?
K: Honestly, I am excited for Azealia Bank’s even though we had beef and she prob thinks I suck. She truly is one of the most talented if not THEE most talented female rapper out of us little seedlings that have popped up in the past couple years. I hope she really leaks her album. I know how it feels to deal with a label and push backs and all that can get real depressing especially when your a person who loves being in control.
SB: Summer is coming up and your iconic song “Summertime” is my summer jam, what’s yours?
K: LOL! I mean some old school bay: Celly Cell – It’s going down
SB: Any plans for the rest of 2014?
K: Other then raise the seed and hustle. Not really. I always have things up my sleeves.
SB: Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
K: Honestly my life changes every year. Drastically. So I don’t even know who I will be in a year TBH. As long as Dez is thriving then it doesn’t matter.
