#19. Kreayshawn Signs With Sony Records For A Rumored $1 Million
Date: June 7
In retrospect, the rise of Kreayshawn makes perfect sense. The route to instant online ubiquity and fame had been blown open by Odd Future and Lil B, so when Kreayshawn released the “Gucci Gucci” video, it was easy to see that it was going to set the Internet ablaze. What did surprise many people though, is how quickly a major record label snapped her up. Known for only one song/video, Kreayshawn reportedly signed a seven-figure deal with Sony. One thing is for sure: We're in a brave new world with Internet sensations.
