But Kreayshawn, the charismatic 22-year-old newcomer, doesn’t use them well: While she’s playful throughout the album, there is no depth to her rhymes. “Gucci, Gucci” has a catchy hook, but the overall song about her disregard for designer brands is annoyingly repetitive. The uneven “Left Ey3,” about a deceitful boyfriend, references TLC’s Left Eye, who burned down her boyfriend’s house. She also raps on the song: “Heard my man is cheating with another (girl) in my house, now I’m finna make a scene like I’m Amy Winehouse.” REALLY? Try again. Kreayshawn tries singing on “luV Haus,” but the drowning track is uneventful. This album will leave you asking: Foxy Brown and Missy Elliott, when will your records be released? CHECK OUT THIS TRACK: “Summertime,” with its smooth feel, is the best of this bunch.
