I’m a sucker for old home movie footage, little documents that reveal inklings of the future. Before they were famous, your favorite indie stars and starlets were babies and had access to cameras. Although I would not count myself as a Kreayshawn fanatic by a long shot, she’s compiled some endearing footage of herself as a child that surpasses the music and is just plain kewt.
Oddly enough, baby Kreayshawn looks and sounds almost exactly like she does in 2012. The same affected drawl and dream to rap, though she has no idea that her love for hip-hop will soon turn her into a controversial Internet rapper that continues to spark the debate of authenticity. No, she is just a little girl with a trumpet and a video camera, just wanting to rap for the camera. O, the innocence of childhood!
Somethin’ Bout Kreay is set to drop August 14 via Sony.
