Like Justin Bieber, Kreayshawn is a bit of an internet sensation. Born and raised in the San Francisco-Oakland area, she started making videos and performing rap songs as a young teen. Eventually, she dropped out of school and moved to L.A. to pursue a rap career. She first teamed up with Lil Debbie and V-Nasty as part of White Girl Mob, and in May 2011 released a solo video for a song called “Gucci, Gucci” which attracted a whole pile of hits on YouTube.
