Female rapper signs Million Dollar Record Deal off one youtube video


Kreayshawn, a unsigned female rapper from Oakland released a song and video called “Gucci Gucci” that went viral on youtube. Soon after a bidding war started with several labels. Missinfo reports insiders have informed her that Kreayshawn signed a deal with Sony for over a million dollars.



MY THOUGHTS: I think its a matter of time before A&R departments are completely removed from record companies... at this point, why are they there? Most A&R's don't really scout for true talent anymore like they use to, they scan youtube to see who has the most hits and sign it (regardless of the level of talent) and then they complain about record sales being down.

This is why the industry turn to shit. I hope that b*tch don't sell sh*t and that A&R gets his a$$ can for embezzlment of company funds and kick backs. I mean CoCoa, WTF!

I can't bash her. I want to see more females in the game. The video was creative. Her image is out there like Lady GaGa. The song was okay. I look forward to hearing new music from her.

this is why the music industry is suffering. no good talent is being signed these days. Just youtubers and internet babies. i dont care if a artist gets their start online as long as they have talent in which this girl lacks. i wont bash her, its not her fault. its the lazy executives who don't look for the hidden gems
