It's unfortunate that the beats throughout Kreayshawn's debut are brilliant, but her lyrics and stories are not.
Somethin 'Bout Kreay features top-notch production work from Free School, Diplo, Boys Noize and DJ Two Stacks -- and these beats would be another rapper's dream. But Kreayshawn, the charismatic 22-year-old newcomer, doesn't use them well. While she's playful throughout the album, there is no depth to her rhymes.
Gucci Gucci has a catchy hook, but the song about her disregard for designer brands is annoyingly repetitive. The uneven Left Ey3, about a deceitful boyfriend, references TLC's Left Eye, who burned down her boyfriend's house. Kreayshawn also raps on the song: "Heard my man is cheating with another [girl] in my house/Now I'm finna make a scene like I'm Amy Winehouse." REALLY? Try again.
Kreayshawn tries singing on luV Haus, but the drowning track is uneventful. This album will leave you asking: Foxy Brown and Missy Elliott, when will your records be released?
