Somethin ‘Bout Kreay, which she describes as a “musical ride through time.”
Due September 18, the project features the singles “Gucci Gucci,” “Go Hard (La.La.La),” and the 2 Chainz-assisted “Breakfast (Syrup),” with contributions from Chippy Nonstop, V-Nasty, Sissy Nobby, Jean Baptiste, Diplo, and Kid Cudi, who appears on “Like It or Love It.”
The WZRD frontman plays guitar riffs on the punk-influenced record. “It came together really organically, just how punk music does come together in a whatever, f**k it type of mood, and it ended up becoming something really cool,” said Kreay, whose mother was in an underground punk band.
After her murderous collaboration with 2 Chainz on his 2011 mixtape T.R.U. REALigion, she reconnected with Deuce on “Breakfast (Syrup).” “We just have a lot of good chemistry as far as us being really open and funny and carefree and stuff like that, and I think that’s why we make a good little pair. We’re so opposite that opposites attract.”
One rapper she wasn’t able to get on the album was Waka Flocka Flame. “I really wanted a Waka Flocka feature on my album, but I just missed it,” said the 22-year-old, who will launch her “Group Hug” tour in November. “I definitely feel like my next collaboration has to be with Waka Flocka or I’m not collaborating ever again.” [Rap-Up]
