Starting her professional life as a video director for the explosive Lil B gave San Francisco MC Kreayshawn a feel for what a comic-book persona could do for a wack-pop hip-hop career. So she made a few mixtapes, recorded one massive dippy summer hit (“Gucci Gucci”) and, by September 2012, dropped Somethin ’Bout Kreay (Sony), her debut full-length. The self-described leader of the “White Girl Mob” goes about the business of smoking weed, cutting off cocks and burning down houses (the last attack tastelessly referencing Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, but tasteless is the point) with deep grooves, quirky electro and indecently catchy melodies as her guide. Somethin isn’t perfect. Her auto-tuned deadpan doesn’t work. Nor does her attempt to be a rousing girl-anthem author à la Katy Perry on “Summertime.” But when she’s Millie Jackson nasty, Kreay can be sassy and contagious.
