There is nothing wrong with being a super-fan of your favorite artist but sometimes people can take things too far.
Take the case of San Francisco based rapper Kreayshawn.
After going on a Twitter rant and explaining that the IRS “wiped (her) whole bank account clean. 4 days before X-mas” and leaving her with literally $0 in her bank account, a devoted fan named Paulie Bomaye took matters into his own hands by creating a GoFundMe page for the rapper.
The accompanying bio reads:
“It’s Christmas and Kreayshawn needs our help. Some where along the lines of her career she didn’t give the IRS some money and they came…..they came with a vengeance. Let’s help this girl get her Xmas spirit back. She dropped “Somethin’ About Kreay” and let’s just say it went double mahogany in terms of sales. The world needs this. If you believe in Xmas miracles this would be one all unto itself. White Girl Mob needs this. Natassia Gail Zolot has blessed the world with such acoustically pleasing masterpieces as “Breakfast” and who can forget “Go Hard”? And why isn’t there a tract in the New King James Version of the Bible for “Gucci Gucci”? I need answers. Let’s band together and help her get her ones right. Also tune into “Lost In Thot” on Dash Radio she host something on there possibly corny but everyone deserves a chance.”
Bomaye then took to Instagram to get the word out about the charity effort where the “Gucci Gucci” rapper promptly commented and asked for the post to be removed.
“Please delete this you can’t just make this,” she wrote on the post. “Look I appreciate the gesture but I don’t wanna beg for people’s help. I’m a grown women I’m handles this situation. Thank you though. But please take it down before the blogs destroy me and make me feel horrible all over again.”
Kreayshawn hasn’t released an album since her 2012 debut, Somethin’ ‘Bout Kreay, which featured appearances by 2 Chainz and Kid Cudi among others. She currently hosts a show called Kreaydio on The Cut station on Dash Radio.
