"Gucci Gucci" Gets Remixed By South London MC Giggs, NYC Secret Show Footage Hits The Web

Amidst the chatter on the Interwebs about who she is and supposedly isn't, Kreayshawn is steadily conquering the airwaves and growing her empire. The pint-sized director and unlikely fashion icon recently traveled outside of the US for the first time ever to perform in France and England and continues to zig-zag across the country to handle radio and press, much to her kitties' dismay, who wait patiently for her return to Cali.

The song that started it all, "Gucci Gucci," has taken on a life of its own, with dozens of people posting their remixes and "how to do your make-up like Kreayshawn" tutorials on YouTube. Now, hot on the heels of Weezy's and Trey Songz' mixtape versions of the song, "Gucci Gucci" is getting the royal treatment, compliments of South London-based rapper Giggs. Crowned Best UK Hip-Hop Act at the 2009 BET Awards and recently signed to XL Recordings, Giggs jumps on the first verse of the song with his deep, monotone drone, that paired with Kreayshawn's higher register, paints the song a different color. Giggs is hungry and wants that "peanut butter jelly." Ladies, guard your Lunchables.

Who DTMD Is:

Prince George County, Maryland duo DTMD represents the youth movement among DMV hip hop. With Dunc on the beats and Toine on the mic, the moniker Dunc and Toine Makin’ Dollas is a nod to the classic East Coast act EPMD, a duo that first hit stardom before Dunc and Toine were even born, but also serves as a strong indicator of their craft—striving to produce fresh and innovative music while maintaining a deep reverence for the pioneers who preceded them.
Dunc’s rich, full-bodied production serves as a natural backdrop to Toine’s technically astute rhymes, layered deep with smooth instrumentation evocative of such luminaries as J. Dilla, DJ Jazzy Jeff, and Pete Rock, each of whom shaped the classic hip hop sounds of Dunc’s childhood. Toine’s energy and bright delivery belie wisdom beyond his years, inspiring deep reflection as easily as sharp battle fare and complex rhyme schemes. Maintaining a close working relationship with PG neighbor Oddisee and assuming a strong presence in the collective atmosphere of the DMV’s hip hop scene, DTMD appeared separately on MMG’s “Helpless Dreamer” compilation, Toine rhyming on “Different Now” and Dunc producing Stik Figa’s “From the Top.”  The single "You" serves to whet appetites for their forthcoming MMG full-length “Makin’ Dollas.”
Listen & enjoy!
