Kreayshawn Bio

California girl Kreayshawn, sometimes called the “Female Lil B," is heating things up in LA with dance-rap songs that would make anyone want to groove along. Find out about this new scene queen in her Kidzworld bio!

Musical Mama

Kreayshawn is just a stage name for 21-year-old Natassia Zolot, who was born in San Francisco and grew up in Oakland, California. Music runs in this young diva’s family. Her mom Elka Zolot was in an influential San Francisco punk garage band called the Trashwomen. Even though Kreayshawn has gone a different direction with her music (less guitars and more beats!), she’s definitely inherited her mom’s punk spirit and DIY attitude, but has all the swagger and flair of a street-wise Oakland rapper. She works with a posse she calls the White Girl Mob, consisting of herself and her friends DJ Lil’ Debbie and vocalist V-Nasty.

Take a look at Kreayshawn's club tune from last summer, Bumpin' Bumpin':

Movies or Music?

Natassia isn’t just creative (or kreaytive) when it comes to music; she received a scholarship for the Berkely Digital Film Institute after leaving high school and attended the institute for one year before taking her music to another level. But her film talents didn’t go to waste; she directed videos for fellow "Bay" rapper Lil B! Kreayshawn is a self-professed “weirdo” and says she gets inspiration from other oddball artists, like Kool Keith and director John Waters. We think it shows in her crazy music, and insane personal style. She will wear anything anywhere to make a point, saying she shops everywhere from charity stores to costumeshops.

She told GQ Magazine: When I go out to a party I make a point to wear crazy little tube tops and oversize jackets with baggy jeans. Right now, I'm at the studio wearing Jordans and a leather jacket - just fresh, you feel me? I usually have to thrift shop at Goodwill, which is why I have crazy swag. But I've been getting free clothes, so now you might see me up in those.

Web Woman

People talk about overnight successes, but with YouTube it doesn’t have to take all night! Just a year after she released her mixtape Kitty’s and Choppas, Kreayshawn put her song "Gucci Gucci" on the web and within in minutes she had more hits than she ever could have imagined. By the end of one week she had 900,000 views! She’s now signed to Columbia Records and living in LA, talking to big names like Drake and Snoop about what’s up next!

Did You Know...

Kreayshawn LOVES cats, and says she lives with lots of them! “I'm a crazy cat lady. I have two cats - Kitty and Choppa - and it's sick because I live in a really tiny apartment - one small room, full of me and kitties. They run that house. It's like I'm their roommate.”
