Chippy Nonstop has been out on the road for the Group Hug Tour with Kreayshawn, Rye Rye, and Honey Cocaine, and we got her to sit down at a computer for a bit and put her art schooling to use for this tour diary. Feast upon it. Feast!

Kreayshawn first stepped into our hearts when her song “Gucci Gucci” was all over the place. Out of nowhere, she was the talk of the internet and it seemed like people were either very much FOR her, or very much AGAINST her. I pretty much love her with every fiber of my being, so I begged her to come to the VICE HQ in Brooklyn, and have a convo date with me in our fancy Bear Room. I know how to treat young rappers right, you know? Her first full-length album, Somethin’ Bout Kreay comes out on the 18th of this month, so we talked about that, but also about the proper definitions of “lean,” and how Bruce Willis is her uncle. (Not Really). 
VICE: So the album comes out September 18th. It seems like it took awhile for it to come out. Do you see any differences in your writing style from when you first started working on it, till it wrapped?
Kreayshawn: Yeah, definitely. I did a lot of freestyling back then, and things were more just about goofing off and having fun. Once I started going to the studio, then things were more serious. I don’t wanna waste time goofing off anymore. I wanna get my point across, right now.
 

 
About a year ago, I wrote a post for another site called “Shut Up About Kreayshawn Being Racist,” and it was their most widely read post. It seems like this was a hot topic, and that people are really interested in you, and finding out what you’re all about. Is the racism thing still a thing that you have to argue with people about, or has that died down?
I think nowadays there’s less talk about that because there’s less shock value with all that, and the whole V-Nasty thing. So yeah, I don’t have to deal with that as much as when I first came out. When you’d Google me back then, all it was were videos of people confronting me like I’m crazy or something.
 
You’re from Oakland, and it seems like it’s not such a thing there. Like people just hang out with whoever and dip into different cultures without it being seen as some weird “appropriation” thing.
Definitely. Out there everyone is separated more by economic status. It’s all like “you’re hella broke,” “damn, she’s hella rich.”

"Breakfast" is the first single off of Kreayshawn’s debut album, Somethin ‘Bout Kreay, which is set to come out on August 14th. The song features 2 Chainz and is the perfect opportunity for both rappers to get poetic about breakfast foods, AND money, which is fun to listen to, and even more fun to watch. 

Here’s a special, EXCLUSIVE, behind the scenes video of the making of “Breakfast.”

Close-up of a “serenely passed-out” Kreayshawn (after 2.5 “weed brownies,” 3 beers, 60% of a 40oz, 2.5mg Xanax in a 6-hour period) with her MacBook on her face and a mysterious, vaguely demonic, medium-small cat staring at her from the doorway thinking mostly curiosity-oriented thoughts like “wonder what she’s listening to” and “sweet headphones, wonder where she got them.”
