Kreayshawn and Kid Cudi, two young 21st century hip hop artists who have taken very different roads to stardom, are the twin cover stars of the next issue of Complex Magazine.
It's Cudi's third time to grace the cover of the lifestyle publication, but Kreayshawn, a first-timer is likely to steal his thunder. In her interview, The 22-year-old rapper from Oakland responds to news that she's been dissed by fellow West Coast emcee Game by saying she wants to slap him in the face.
“I wanna slap a grown-ass man in the face,” she said, before joking about calling up Game's old rival 50 Cent. "Game is a weak ass Blood, he ain't about to do s**t," she concluded.
Game targeted Kreayshawn for her alleged use of the N-word, but Kreay says she's never used the epithet in her life. It's her friend V-Nasty who gets her into trouble.
“Everyone thinks I’m Vanessa [V-Nasty] and I have to answer [for her actions] every day in every f***ing interview,” she said.
“I’ve sat down and had talks with her, like, ‘Please, if you took this word out of your vocabulary, it would help your career. It would really help mine.’ She’s just been like, ‘This is who I am. This is how I was raised. I’m not gonna change for anybody,’ and I respect that. She doesn’t have to listen to me. It’s just hard if we’re all mobbing together and everyone thinks I use it, too. That’s when you have to step away or find a way to work around it.”
Speaking on her beef with Rick Ross, whom has said he wants to make her the target of his own backhand, Kreayshawn reiterated that she bares no ill will toward the Bawse.
“I didn’t know that we were still on Ustream. It was just me goofing off with friends," Kreay said of an incriminating video that leaked online in which she wonders aloud whether Ross can find his own penis.
"I don't have any problems [with Rick Ross], but I can see how it looks that way.”
The October/November issue of Complex hits stands October 4.
