THIS SOURCE IS FROM WIKI Natassia Gail Zolot[1] (born September 24, 1989), better known by her stage name Kreayshawn, is an American rap singer-songwriter from Oakland, California. She is the daughter of Elka Zolot, former member of the San Francisco garage punk band The Trashwomen.


Kreayshawn directed numerous underground music videos.[2] Kreayshawn additionally performs as part of the White Girl Mob, consisting of herself, fellow vocalist V-Nasty, and DJ Lil' Debbie.
She became well-known after posting the video for her single, "Gucci Gucci" (song produced by DJ Two Stacks, video directed by Joseph Zentil of Strange Customs), generating nearly three million YouTube views in three weeks. In the song she proclaims her disdain for wearing designer brands such as GucciLouis VuittonFendi, or Prada: "Basic bitches wear that shit, so I don't even bother."[3]
In the video, Kreayshawn raps and ghostrides with her sidekick, DJ Lil' DebbieJasper Dolphin, and Left Brain of the hip-hop group OFWGKTA also make appearances in the video for the single, along with Stephen James Turner and Aaron Matthew Perez. On June 8, 2011 it was announced that she signed a recording contract with Columbia Records.
On June 23, 2011 it was announced that Kreayshawn would direct the music video for "The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie", the first single from the Red Hot Chili Peppers' album, I'm with You, which is due for release on August 30, 2011. The single was released on July 15, 2011, though it is unknown when the video will be released.[4] Kreayshawn told MTV that she was shocked when the band's label contacted her management about directing the video. She said she went to film school but never thought it would translate to something this big.[5] In late July 2011, the Chili Peppers decided to film a second version of the music video with director, Marc Klasfeld which will be released August 17, 2011 instead of the version Kreayshawn directed. It is currently unknown why the band opted to re-shoot the video and not go with Kreayshawn's version or if her version will ever be released.[6]
She is currently nominated for Best New Artist at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards.

[edit]Criticism and reception

Video "Gucci Gucci" has accumulated over 12,420,150 views on YouTube as of August 2011.[7] Zolot was quickly signed to Columbia Records after her hit was released. She performed with her group White Girl Mob at a highly anticipated event. While Ellen Lovelidge of Pulse praised their performance, she said "they'll smooth out the kinks in a year or so", referencing on-stage inexperience and the frequent use of the word "nigga" by herself and White Girl Mob member V-Nasty.[8]
Not all reviews have been positive however. Several critics have lambasted Kreayshawn citing cultural appropriation as an "exploitation of black culture".[9] Bene Viera of Clutch Mag stated, "It's equally problematic that every female emcee post, and MC Lyte who has had massive mainstream success all had to sell sex. Kreayshawn, on the other hand, is able to avoid an over sexualized image because of her whiteness."
West Coast rapper, Game, released a diss track "Uncle Otis" where he accuses Zolot of using racial slurs. He explained, "You can't be playing with that word, some people will take it serious, especially coming from someone that's [not black]. There's a lot of tragic history behind it.
