Kreayshawn may be ending 2012 feeling less like Nicki Minaj and more like the Numa Numa guy. The Bay Area's most popular white female rapper of 2011 has been trudging north through the East Coast leg of her Group Hug Tour for the bulk of November — just 13 months after the last person on Earth spoke the words, "Have you seen that 'Gucci Gucci' Youtube video?" With paltry crowd turnouts reported from Tampa Bay to the weather-rebounding populous of Manhattan, Kreayshawn's biggest East Coast supporter may be tourmate and Baltimore native Rye Rye. The Maryland crew member is also the strongest argument for attendance to their Sunday tour stop at the Varsity. Where Kreayshawn's cavernous mid-tempo trash oft mentions starting a party, Rye Rye's fondness for house textures actually has the capacity to get the job done. Hopefully the party won't stop when she does. 16+.
