Kreayshawn: “People call me the N-word that’s why I use it”

Rapper Kreayshawn is in the news today, but not for the success of her “Gucci Gucci” video or signing with Columbia Records.

Kreayshawn, a 21-year-old white female rapper from Oakland, CA, is making headlines for her use of the N-word in a Twitter post last month.

“People are actin so funny omg lol… I got 200k views… not 200k dollars…WTF YOU WANT FROM A N***A?! DMX VOICE,” Kreayshawn’s Twitter read.

According to, Kreayshawn recently spoke on using the N-word saying:

“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.

“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.’’

If she’s smart, she’ll never used the N-word in any context ever again.

She’ll learn quick that black people don’t play that in Hip-Hop.

Word to Eminem.
