Rapper-singer Kreayshawn is blowing up on Twitter simply for being Kreayshawn. Fans are remembering their favorite artiste as a surge of tweets has populated the social media platform, most notably for her 2010 debut hit single 'Gucci Gucci'. Listen to it below.

Fans are leaving comments like "Kreayshawn was the blueprint and if she came out today with this shit she'd be tiktok's darling" and "2020 brought that Kreayshawn back to the timeline, this year continues to amaze me lol." Fans are nostalgic over her track 'Gucci Gucci' and want newcomers to her music to experience it, saying, "when kreayshawn released gucci gucci the world changed, there was a dimensional shift" and "I love how @KREAYSHAWN is poppin back up and trending on twitter. She also dropped a remix of GUCCI GUCCI this year." One fan also shared, "Kreayshawn literally made me the person that I am today like wow yt oakland queen."

Kreayshawn, whose real name is Natassia Gail Zolot, is an American rapper, singer and music video director from Oakland, California. In 2011, while serving as a member of the rap group with her friends, titled White Girl Mob, she released the music video for 'Gucci Gucci' to viral success. White Girl Mob disbanded in 2012 but Kreayshawn's solo career took off with notable critical and public reception. 'Gucci Gucci' followed the release of her 2010 debut mixtape 'Kittys x Choppas' and appeared on her first studio album 'Somethin' 'Bout Kreay'. The classic track generated nearly three million views on YouTube in the first three weeks and is now at over 68 million views.

Her other business ventures included the launch of the OK 1984 fashion brand and she released a choker collection called Hella Cute. She is the sole creative director of OK 1984 since ever since the brand was created. In 2014, Kreayshawn announced that she is starting a podcast with Chippy Nonstop called 'Lost in Thot' but it was since removed from SoundCloud. Around the time Kreay also kept producing and collaborating, releasing songs such as 'Hey Ricky' and 'Pizza Song'. During her trending resurgence on Twitter, Kreayshawn actually responded and let fans know how best to support her as she is currently in debt to Sony. With an initial tweet, she wrote, "Errr, I'm trending I have nothing to promote.. I dropped a weird EP this year https://fanlink.to/tobm I been working on a collective we raised 500$ this week for black trans women https://smile.rip I have 2 songs on this raising money for NAACP http://apockrysis.bandcamp.com/album/bail-out-vol-2." 

In a follow-up tweet, she added, "P.S Don't buy Gucci Gucci or stream it. I get 0$ and I'm in debt to sony for 800k. Stream or by my new project ;p https://smile.rip/acab.html goto my site and sign petitions and use linked resources if needed. Send more to add on there as well. Let's get it."
