Kreay's latest track hints that she's shifting her focus back to rap.


If you've been paying attention to Kreayshawn's SoundCloud output over the last few years, you'll know she's been regularly putting out some great mixes that have included collections of lo-fi instrumental hip-hop, juke, nightcore, and Jersey club. More recently, she's been easing back into rapping with a few collaborations with producer DJTWOSTACKS. The songs have a similar casual freestyle-like quality to Kreay's early collaborator Lil B, as well as his avowed student iLoveMakonnen. At the same time, many of the songs have had pretty heavy subject matter -- whether it be "Boutta," which takes aim at rape culture and abusers in hip-hop, or "Missing Kitty," dedicated to Kreay's cat of nine years which she recently lost. Similarly, "Depressed Freestyle," while light-hearted in some ways, feels like a real response to the often unhelpful and patronizing "solutions" given to people dealing with mental health issues. Kreay herself put it most eloquently on Twitter: "New freestyle bout how when you depressed and everyone be suggesting shit for you to do but, you're just like nah..."

Quotable Lyrics:
And I can't figure out
Why I'm feeling like shit
People tellin' me
"Get up,' You're a lazy bitch
But give me a break
'Cause I must admit
My brain not workin' right
Man, I'm out of it
And everything you fucking say
Got me mad as hell
Tellin' me to meditate 
And go eat soma kale
But yoga ain't shit
Man, I want Taco Bell
Drink a beer, sit around
And just feel like shit
