Oakland-bred newcomer, Kreayshawn, has seen her world turned upside down nearly overnight, ever since she released the music video for her catchy “Gucci Gucci” tune just over a week ago.
The clip spread virally, garnering over 1.5 million views to the original video on Youtube and many more around the web. Apparently, the buzz has paid off, resulting in a record deal.
According to MissInfo.tv, a bidding war for the 21-year-old indie female spitter began, following the instant attention of “Gucci Gucci” … and now, she’s landed a deal with Sony.
Sources tell Miss Info that Kreayshawn signed to the label for over $1 million just days ago.
However, as of press time, an official announcement had not been released, and the rapper, herself, seems to be denying it.
“How can I get signed? I’m pregnant with twins!” she wrote on Twitter (@KREAYSHAWN).
Complex seems to think the denial is “all part of her brilliant marketing plan.”
Us, we don’t know what to think. We’ll await the announcement.
Check out the clip below, produced by The Hundreds, of Kreayshawn’s performance last week in San Francisco.
