KREAYSHAWN, Grimes & Tragik Form Punk Band: "DON'T SMOKE MY BLUNT, B*TCH" (L$D)
Since it's largely being totted as an [all] "GiRL pUnK bAnD," I'm mildly curious as to what sort of role rising Vancouver producer Blood Diamonds (Mike Tucker) really played in the creation of "DON'T SMOKE MY BLUNT BITCH." Supposedly recorded in 10 minutes and filmed in under an hour over the weekend, the track was produced by Grimes and it's trippy-ass music video was directed by Tragik. L$D's third and final member, KREAYSHAWN looks really hot and raps well too, as usual!
President Obama said that "L$D r a fresh breath of air after months of depressing goth pop" and New York Times has already championed them as "the hypest band in l.a." No word just yet on an L$D album/mixtape, but I'd almost expect one sooner than later since they keep referring to "DON'T SMOKE MY BLUNT BITCH" as their first single. KREAYSHAWN's long-rumored Interscope debut, Somethin' Bout Kreay is slated for an August 14th release date, while Grimes' latest album, Visions, has been out for a while now.
