Now that Kreayshawn is blowing up, her crew is starting to surface including yet another white girl, V-Nasty. This chick has me clutching my pearls.
She sounds like a maniac. A maniac I would never, ever want to be friends with, but a maniac who I would see perform live. Not because I like her - I think she's all kinds of NO, but this whole thing is a freakshow to me and I'm genuinely curious to see what her show would be like.
I am FASCINATED by this phenomena, not a fan of it. I just watched 8 videos of V-Nasty freestyling, hanging with her friends, and being generally obnoxious, but I've never seen anything like this. By "this" I mean "her." I lived in Oakland with puh-lenty of white kids who emulated our black friends. It's not a novelty or uncommon in the East Bay - just a natural part of the culture, honestly. But never once did I hear a white person use the N word, even as a "term of endearment" as people who use that word like to say. I just can't get past it. It's foul no matter how anyone tries to justify it.
However, I'm writing about this because her collaboration with Kreayshawn on "You Already Know Me (Diss)" has a very very very VERY 90's East Oakland-sounding beat that I like. A lot. Warning: lyrics are offensive. But if you've been following the White Girl Mob, you know about this controversy already.
What do you think of this East Bay rap revival coming from tiny white females? Do you feel guilty about enjoying music by people who offend you? Is that even possible? How do you deal with it?
