Fear not, bad bitches: Kreayshawn is back with an actual album!
Well, calling Somethin ‘Bout Kreay an actual album is generous, but there’s no denying that Kreayshawn has brought us a body of work matching the subtlety of 2011’s “Gucci Gucci.” Yes, thirteen bouncy, egotistical, painfully unsophisticated tracks that just DGAF.
The beats are well-crafted, thanks to a great production team. That said, it’s Kreayshawn’s lyrics that remind listeners what a classy broad she is: calling her blunt is not only pun-y (Did you guys know she smokes weed?!) but accurate. “Summertime” asks, “Can you roll my blunts if I get too hiiiiiigh?” Track “Left Ey3” references dead singers Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes and Amy Winehouse, plus the decidedly-living Courtney Love. If I had a nickel for every time Kreay-Kreay uses the word “bitch” I would have the money to smoke as much weed as she does. You guys! Did you know she smokes weed?
Plus, Kid Cudi makes a guest appearance, so this record will probably give you a contact high. And then the spins shortly after.
