Riding the success of her single "Gucci Gucci," Kreayshawn has announced that she'll be and directing Red Hot Chili Peppers' music video for "The Adventures Of Rain Dance Maggie" from their forthcoming album I'm With You. Kreayshawn has also announced dates for her upcoming mini-tour this August, which includes headlining dates in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, along with a performance at the POPPED! Music Festival in Philadelphia on September 24th. Tickets for the tour, along with limited edition city-specifc t-shirt packages, can be purchased now at www.Kreayshawn.com. Amidst all of these latest developments, Kreayshawn has released a new song, "Rich Whores."
Leaked last week exclusively through her website as a thank you to fans, "Rich Whores" shines a spotlight on girls who, despite having money, shop at thrift stores. "When you go to fashion school in LA and San Francisco, there's a lifestyle that rubs off on you," says Kreayshawn. "I wanted to make a jam for all those girls, who sniff hella powder, shop at thrift stores and get the party crackin'."
Atop trunk rattling bass, fuzzy blips, and pizzicato violin loops, Kreayshawn shout-outs everyone from pop icons The Spice Girls to Southern rap staple Gucci Mane. With a slow and steady pace, Kreayshawn playfully pokes fun at her targets with lyrics like "What up, bitch, I heard you to to FIDM / What up bitch, I see you dancing with no rhythm, " and "Her boyfriend's in an indie band and has a mustache / The music's fucking lame, he's looking like a muskrat." Despite the cheeky jabs, Kreayshawn's confident that all types of girls will dig it. "Girls can relate, they know who I'm talking about," she says, adding, "and the girls who I'm talking about will like it just as much.
Kreayshawn's Summer 2011 Tour Dates:
8/18 NYC @ Highline Ballroom 8/19 Chicago @ The Bottom Lounge 8/25 San Francisco @ Slim's 8/27 Los Angeles @ The Roxy 9/24 Philadelphia @ POPPED! Music Festival
