Why Hip Hop needs Kreayshawn

For some time, hip hop has been changing and the year of 2011 represents this change. In only nine months, hip hop has gone through a number of firsts, including a rapper naming his album, I'm Gay. For most of the year, Lil B was the biggest controversy in the game, until fans learned of Kreayshawn.

Kreayshawn hails from the Bay Area and she has made a number of enemies, including Game. Her frequent use of the "N-word," along with other offensive words, have made her a target. Game admitted he would physically harm her if they were to meet in person. The new rapstress has also taken shots at Rick Ross.

However, the addition of Kreayshawn in the rap game shows hip hop moving in the right direction. Hip hop has all sorts of fans from all over the world. Still, though, the music has been primarily made by black men, along with a small number of women. Kreayshawn marks the total opposite of what most would expect from a rapper, as she is a white woman making rap music.

If not for anything else, hip hop needs Kreayshawn, and her eccentric lyrics, to show the advancement of hip hop and to display a post-racial society.
