Kreayshawn’s “Gucci Gucci” Ghostwriter Says He Hasn’t Received Royalties

Speak, a rapper-turned-ghostwriter from Moreno Valley, California, who co-wrote Kreayshawn’s hit single “Gucci Gucci,” among others, says he still hasn’t seen any royalties for his work.

“That’s the weird thing,” he tells the L.A. Weekly about the track that got Kreay an alleged $1 million dollar deal with Columbia Records, “seeing someone become rich overnight and getting to do all the cool things that come with being a successful artist, knowing you had a part in that, but eating Spam for dinner.”

25-year-old Speak, born Anthony Negrete, has collaborated with the Oakland rapper on a number of other tracks, including “Rich Whores,” her only other release. Speak also says he taught Kreay how to count bars and “con-ceptualize and structure lines and put a filter on all the craziness.”

Hopefully, Speak will see his luck change with the release of his own album, Inside Out Boy, on November 14. The set is mixed and engineered by Odd Future’s Syd tha Kid and features production from Odd Future’s production duo the Super 3.—Gina Montana

    This is the same guy who 2-3 weeks ago was saying he had never written anything for Kreayshawn, and she did it all herself. Hmmmm….

    @ Mikey F Baby. I would like to read the article that says it. Do you have the link? Anyway, kreayshawn lies about everything as we all witness. She is not very credible. I believe him. Kreayshawn is a a scumbag! After all, she has been bragging about being a criminal (dope deals, pimping) and with a criminal past like her she is surely capable of stealing from others.

      It’s in last month’s Complex magazine with her on the cover. I have the physical copy, but I’m sure there it’s up on the website somewhere.

      It’s the same old story though. Someone comes out with some new shit like that (most) people like, and the haters slowly make their way out of the woodwork. I think she’s dope.

    i can vouch for this dude saying he didnt write anything on that track, just someone trying to bum whats not theirs probably…

  • Sorry

    Kreayshawn lies about everything. I don’t believe her.
