-Kreayshawn's real name is Natassia Gail Zolot. She was born in San Francisco before moving to Oakland at 10-years-old.
-She wears sunglasses during indoor interviews because: “We coolin’ in here, we chillin’."
-She has tattoos of Sailor Moon, Goofy, Mickey Mouse inside of a hamburger, and Daisy Duck holding a gun.
-Her pre-rap odd jobs included working at Ikea, Starbucks, and as an interior landscaper.
-She attended the Digital Film Institute in Berkeley, but dropped out after eight months.
-She is a fan of John Waters and would like to direct films.
Now on to the illuminating quotes!
“People be like, 'oh, that’s that white rapper.' I don’t like the sound of that. That sounds hella whack to me—white-girl rapper. I’m an artist.”
“I’m just worried about so many other things. I don’t care if I’m white, and I’m living in Oakland. I don’t care if I’m skinny. I’m just being me. I’m a funny person and I like talking.”
“Most of the haters are just miseducated. At the same time, they’re the people who are like, ‘I hate what’s on the radio and I hate that all of everything is fabricated.’ But then something like me comes out that’s organic—that’s new and fresh—and they hate that, too.”
“It’s just like, ‘What the f--k you want? Why don’t you go make a song and listen to yourself and shut the f--k up, you know?’ S--t.”
“As soon as it came time to do your own projects, I was like, ‘F--k this. You can’t tell me that my idea sucks.’ I’m an artist—it’s my ideas.”
“When I was younger, growing up in the ‘hood, being the only white girl, like, there’s time when you’re like s--t, it sucks being white, you know?”
