Girl I Work With, You’re Not Allowed To Listen To “Gucci Gucci” Anymore

At first it was just obnoxious, but you’re a girl and that’s who this song was made for. I’m drawing the line now. Stop telling me that I don’t “get it”. There isn’t anything to get. Please cease or you will be asked to resign. Outlined below are the following reasons for my ultimatum.

1. It makes you stupider for having listened to it.

Not every song needs to be a Mensa exercise, but I’d like to be able to remember when to use a semi colon and what twenty percent of a tip is. Since you insisted on this being the feel good hit of the universe, I’ve forgotten my middle names and how to tie a bowtie.

2. It’s dubstep.

Next.

3. It’s mad wiggerish.

Kreayshawn, is a tiny white girl who refers to her posse as her “sistas” and uses racial slurs in a sanctimonious fashion. I understand that the streets of East Oakland can be frightening, but dropping out of film school in Berkeley isn’t really the point of sale I want my rap coming from. If she were a tiny white male, Rick Ross would be planning on deep frying Kreayshawn and serving her to his crew with a side of grits.

4. You told me that you have two Louis Vuitton purses on hold.

“Gucci Gucci” is a song about not needing to brand yourself with labels, and yet you love flashing your credit card-scorching articles all over the bar. You’re using the song as an accessory and remember, when accessorizing always take off the last thing you put on. I figured out that you shouldn’t pay more for brand name apparel when I was nine and the nerdy kid in “Kick Butt” jogging pants couldn’t stop himself from getting his nose bloodied while playing soccer-baseball.

5. I got you a Minipops album to act as methadone.

You’re addicted, I get it. You’re a tiny girl who loves Inside Edition and you had no chance from the start against this drug. I sendspaced you a Minipops album that I’m pretty sure has a Kurtis Blow cover on it. This should get you through the week.TC mark

    Haha.  The song isen’t really that bad, but I can see how this can be annoying in the workplace.  
    Nice article.

    Come on, bro. You can’t say “Wigger” anymore. It went into the Casually Racist Hall of Fame with “Gypped”.

    Kreayshawn doesn’t actually use racial slurs in this (or possibly any?) song. You’re projecting.

    So you’re saying you don’t want to buy a song that’s about how you don’t like buying things?

    Saw her in “concert” in an upscale clothing boutique. Strangest musical experience ever. It was so incredibly awkward, and I’m pretty sure I was the only person in the room who didn’t just happen to be shopping and actually knew who she was.

    • http://twitter.com/jennifersussex Jennifer Sussex

      They just have her singing at malls? This is like Tiffany all over again.

         Kind of–the store is Colette, this extremely overpriced and ultra-hipster boutique in Paris on the biggest shopping street. It’s basically an urban outfitters for the children of Saudi oil tycoons–think diamond-covered iPhones, designer skateboards, and 30,000 euro jackets.

      • http://twitter.com/jennifersussex Jennifer Sussex

        Is Colette just a popular first name in France? Because I’m thinking of the famous author, but I wonder whether the name is common or synonymous with quality.

      Kreayshawn is actually the reason I drunkenly bought tickets to POPPED. I’m kind of excited to see how she is live. 

  • Jordan

    She doesn’t use racial slurs. It’s not dubstep either. Worst article I’ve ever read on Thought Catalog. And I don’t even like Kreayshawn.

    • http://twitter.com/galette_rois Julian Galette

      The use of the word nigga relates more to Kreayshawn’s associate V-Nasty (it’s something that comes up in a lot of talk about Kreayshawn/White Girl Mob) but from what I understand about V-Nasty, she’s of mixed race and was raised by a black mother (who called her nigga) in a black neighborhood.

      I won’t argue that her background automatically gives her license to use the word, but it’s not up to anyone who’s so far removed from that experience (especially a white person. Sorry guys, you can’t get offended for us) to tell her she can’t.

  • dub

    If you think this is dubstep you need your head looking at, but then again if this is what americans call dubstep then its weak.

    • jazzbuh

      not even close to dubstep

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1363230138 Michael Koh

      who calls it dubstep…? 

      • Hdj

        “#2 It’s dubstep. Next.”

    Even minor distinctions about race cannot be trusted with anyone on this site.  Thanks for the reminder.

    • Hjd

      says the solitary black chick, who thinks she becomes the voice of her people.

      • http://twitter.com/galette_rois Julian Galette

        nah, I agree with her.

        Uhh… I never claimed to speak for anyone but myself.  Any real criticism about my comment or are you still busy unraveling your panties?

      You should listen to qotsa’s feel good hit of the summer and tell her she doesn’t get it 

  • Rachel Butters Scotch

    You should have just expanded more on point #4, as that’s an interesting enough concept to fuel its own article. People using this song as like “omg i’m so awesomepseudorich,” when it’s actually about how they suck. Sort of like depressed high school girls who are into “Creep” by Radiohead.

  • Thegirlwhofellasleep

    I don’t think your real name’s Trevor Risk.

    dude needs to chill

  • guest

    why can’t i stop listening to this song.
    someone should do a post on that.

    I think it’s hilarious that you attack Kreayshawn’s authenticity but then tout Rick Ross as some sort of real g’, motherfucker was a god damned prison guard. I don’t care how he tried to spin it “I was just working on the inside, etc, etc, etc” homie’s fake as fuck, got shat on by 50 Cent (narrating a sex tape of his baby mama to boot) and he had to drop a bunch of bangers to make everyone forget that.

    Hip-hop has never been about authenticity. 

    And I shouldn’t even have to explain why using the word wigger ain’t cool. 

    • http://twitter.com/galette_rois Julian Galette

      And I think it’s kind of absurd that your magazine has an interview with Das Racist (which is really, really good, by the way) yet you shit on Kreayshawn. They’re both at different ends of the art-school rap spectrum – Das Racist relishes in being overly intelligent and underground (in the sense that their material will never get the mainstream exposure it deserves) while Kreayshawn enjoys being dumbed-down, ridiculous, and super-fucking-popular.
      They’re both basically art projects, dude. And they both say a lot more about the industry than they do about the artists involved.

    I can’t stand Kreayshawn. Will be so excited when this song & her face are no longer in the spotlight.

  • JD

    Kreayshawn is from the Tenderloin in SF and then shifted to East Oakland.  She dropped out of Berkeley while on scholarship.  She never had the funds to attend without it.  You don’t have to like the girl, but at least do the proper research before you blast her.

    • kgb kgbb

      Dropping out of a school with a free ride isn’t exactly the brightest move she could’ve made.  Actually pretty stupid considering her little teenage angst stage will disappear and she’ll still be uneducated.
