Oakland Rapper Kreayshawn Hates Oakland's Best Pizza

  • The things Kreayshawn hates could fill a Zagat guide.

You might know Kreayshawn from the thousands of articles about her on every music blog and reasonably hip magazine (including this one!) Or you might know her from that one song she did -- and when we say "one song," we mean that literally.

But you certainly don't know her as this: one of the many people in front of you in line at Zachary's Pizza in Oakland, a pizza joint so superb that just last night a friend announced, over her first-ever Zachary's slice, "Oh! This is why people like pizza in the first place!"

Kreayshawn, though, doesn't go there. As our All Shook Down blog reports, in a new interview with Vancouver's legendary DJ/interviewer Narduwar, Kreayshawn got quizzed about Oakland pizza. She spat, "Fuck Zachary's" and added:

"Fuck that fancy-ass pizza, man. We don't eat that shit in Oakland. That's fancy Oakland. We eat out the taco truck in Oakland."

In "Gucci, Gucci," Kreayshawn takes a firm stand against "basic bitches" who "work at Arby's," but basic pizza -- rather than Zachary's thick, rich, perfected variety -- seems fine with her.

And, Christ, every half hour or so she turns up in an ad on Spotify talking about how she's craving a slice of pizza with some ranch on it -- doesn't she understand that if the pizza's already flavorful you don't need to dip it in goo?

(Also, yes, we know Kreayshawn also did an earlier song called "Bumpin Bumpin," but out of decency to her we don't mention that one.)

  • Permanent Residents

    San Francisco is not just skin deep to these folks — it's a permanent resident of their bodies and souls. They may be scattered far and wide — everywhere from Bernal Heights to Brooklyn, El Paso, Tokyo, and beyond — but the one thing these self-defined San Franciscans all share is a deep commitment to the city by the Bay.
