Natassia “Kreayshawn” Zolot, a white rapper from Oakland, California is defending the use of the “n-word” in a Twitter post, saying that everybody uses the word where she grew up, according to Voice-online.co.uk.
Zolot posted a tweet saying “People are actin so funny omg lol. I got 200k views. Not 200k dollars. WTF you want from a n****a? DMX voice [sic].”
Zolot defended the post recently saying:
“In Oakland, Asian people will call Mexicans that. A Mexican will call a black dude that. A white person will call an Asian that. Everyone calls each other that. I feel like that word is used in the low-income community more than anything. I can see if I was some rich crazy trick and I was just saying this because it’s hip-hop,” Kreayshawn said, “I was raised around this. Me and my sisters were all raised around this. People call me that. But personally I’m not flaunting it around.’’
Zolot rose to Internet fame after her “Gucci Gucci” music video was viewed over 2 million times, landing her a record deal with Columbia Records. Writer Timmhotep Aku recently slammed the rapper, saying “Kreayshawn is better laughed at than acclaimed.”
