    She's best when playing it kinetic and in complete violation of good taste, so whittle this one down by half for the ultimate in bird-flipping, rave-rapping, and repercussion-free living.

    The problem with Somethin' Bout Kreay is that the record is inevitably one of novelty, and it wears thin fast.

    It is the preponderance of bland dance tracks (the inane 'Go Hard (La.La.La)', 'Twerkin'' and the abysmal 'luV haus' et al) lacking the wit of her previous singles, which consign this debut to a failure.

    Her delivery--nasal, slightly nagging--inevitably begins to grate long before the album's running time is up. But there are points of interest that take Kreayshawn beyond empty attempts at swag.

    Over 13 tracks, though, Kreay's 'thing' wears waaay thin.

    It's not a very good listen, but it's kind of fun to watch someone be so free.

    There's Something 'Bout Kreay is the sound of a record company trying to turn 15 minutes of fame into a career, and spending way too much money in the process.

    The Oakland MC's debut explores her skill at giving hormonally bonkers post-Odd Future shock rap a bratty, ashtray-Madonna spin.

    Thanks to her Valley Girl charisma and omnivorous sexual gaze she mostly succeeds. [Dec 2012, p.73]

    A good album overall. Really under-rated. There's 13 songs on the album and when you listen to it, you'll feel like you're listening to 13A good album overall. Really under-rated. There's 13 songs on the album and when you listen to it, you'll feel like you're listening to 13 different albums, all merged into one. Kreayshawn pays tribute to her Gucci Gucci flow on tracks 'Left Ey3' spitting rapid verses over an electronic beat, whereas on tracks like 'BFF' and 'Luv Haus' we see Kreay drift into a more R'n'B/Pop genre, keeping her eye out for a more mature audience. A great album and personally I believe this deserved a lot more than '20K copies' in America. Collapse Full Review »

    If Kreayshawn was out to make an inspirational, meaningful album to cure world hunger and start the ball rolling for her presidency campaign,If Kreayshawn was out to make an inspirational, meaningful album to cure world hunger and start the ball rolling for her presidency campaign, she would have received a 0 for this album. However, if she was out to make an album of fun, twerk music (Which is pretty evident as even one of the tracks is called 'Twerkin!!!') She receives a 5, it's still not amazing dance music compared to Rihanna or Iggy Azalea's efforts, but it's still not dreadful. Positives of the album are that no two tracks sound remotely similar, and 10/13 tracks are twerkable and fun. A big positive is that Kreayshawn has mastered auto-tune. Whereas artists like Lil Kim or T-Pain overdo auto-tune, Kreayshawn has just the right amount to sound good yet not tacky. The singles (Gucci Gucci, Breakfast & Go Hard) are the highlights of the album, an opinion which other critics share, and guest appearances from 2 Chainz & Chippy Nonstop are also appreciated.
