Kreayshawn Tells Complex Magazine: “I quit IKEA and started trapping full-time…”
Yesterday, we showed you Kreayshawn on the cover of Complex Magazine’s upcoming October/November 2011 issue, and after finally getting a chance to read through this rather … “interesting” interview, we thought we’d share our 5 favorite quotes!
Check them out below:
1. On her buddy V-Nasty using the N-word:
“Why do I keep getting dissed and gotta ignore it like nothing is going on? I’ve never said it one time in my motherfucking life…
“Everyone thinks I’m Vanessa [V-Nasty] and I have to answer [for her actions] every day in every fucking interview. I’ve sat down and had talks with [V-Nasty], like, ‘Please, if you took this word out of your vocabulary, it would help your career. It would really help mine.’ She’s just been like, ‘This is who I am. This is how I was raised. I’m not gonna change for anybody,’ and I respect that. She doesn’t have to listen to me.”
2. On Game threatening her and saying he’s going to put a rifle in her face because of the N-word situation:
“I’m going to say, ‘Game’s a weak ass Blood, he ain’t about to do shit.’ I wanna slap a grown-ass man in the face. Am I just supposed to get dissed every day and be a weak ass little white bitch? Fuck that shit. I’m tired of people disrespecting me.”
3. On quitting her day job to “trap full time” and pimp girls out on Craigslist:
“I quit IKEA and started trapping full-time. I was driving around in a pink Mustang at two in the morning, no license, with like two 15s in the trunk, serving knots. Then these girls I met, they were on their hustle, too. They brought me this new idea, it was safer than selling drugs. I posted the links for them, took the anonymous pictures, and set up the dates and prices.”
4. On not having a job, and recording music videos for local artists (after her short stint at a crack dealer and a pimp):
“I was doing music videos for free. If you’re editing and filming all day, you don’t have time for a job. My mom was super worried. I was selling weed and stuff and my roommate was getting the hook-up with prescription pills. But our main focus was art.”
5. On her authenticity and whether or not she think she’s commercial:
“I never looked at myself as a marketable person. I just try to let my personality shine through. Do you think a 16-year-old girl gives a fuck about where I’m from or what I’ve done? No, she loves the songs.”
Classy gal, huh?
