Kreayshawn took to her Tumblr to vent her frustration with the music industry. In her blog entry entitled “I Am Mad” she says, “this game is fake as all hell!” She complains about being called racist and having pre-teen nude photos leaked on twitter. All that and he beef with Rick Ross is probably too much to stomach. Ironically, many of her blog readers “liked” her entry. Read more at Rap-Up.
