Meeting With Labels and Her Rumored Million Dollar Deal With Sony
Kreayshawn: “I’m pretty sure I’ve met with every freaking label known to man. Basically, I accidentally wandered into Interscope with my manager—he manages a whole bunch of different artists. We were going in for a different artist’s meeting. I walked in and all the interns already knew who I was, they’re the shit.
“The interns are hip and doing their job to let these big people know what’s going on in the industry. So I go in there and they’re all like, ‘Oh, Kreayshawn! Kreayshawn!’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, I’m at Interscope.’ That kind of shocked everyone. Like an hour after we left the meeting, we had three meetings with three other labels.
“It’s been like that for the past couple days. Just meeting everyone, talking to everyone, and they’re going crazy. We met with So So Def, Death Row. [Laughs.]. While I was tweeting that, people were hitting me up like, ‘Congratulations! I’m so proud of you Kreayshawn.’ I’m like, What are you people thinking? They haven’t been around in years! [Laughs.]
“Like, Yo, I’m signing to Murder Inc. I don’t care. [Laughs.] We’re definitely wanted. It’s just basically coming down to who we’re going with. It’s like picking a prom date, for life or something. But like I said, So So Def has made a really strong push. [Laughs.] I’m really close with Jermaine Dupri now. [Laughs.]
“[As far as the deal with Sony] nothing is finalized yet. But we’ve definitely been taking a whole bunch of meetings for the past week. We took meetings with every label. They’re not the only people we met with. We’ll make an announcement when everybody is ready, but right now, that’s basically just a rushed ahead rumor. It’s not that exciting. Whatever we end up choosing, it’s going to be a well-thought out decision.”
