Kreayshawn Didn't 'Intentionally' Dis Rick Ross

'There's no Rick Ross offensive things going on in there, even though it sounds like it,' she tells MTV News of recent radio freestyle.

Kreayshawn has received her fair share of hate over her relatively brief career.

The Best New Artist nominee at the 2011 VMAs exploded onto the scene with "Gucci Gucci," but critics have been quick to write her off as a flash in the pan.

Her freestyle on Philly's "Cosmic Kev Come Up Show" earlier this month didn't do her any favors either. During the less-than-stellar display, Kreayshawn took a shot at Rick Ross and his much-scrutinized past as a corrections officer. "You tryin' to play me like a boss? You faker than Rick Ross," she rapped on-air.

When MTV News caught up with Kreay earlier this week, she said she wasn't intending to dis the Maybach Music Group boss — even though she admits it came across that way.

"I feel like with anything, you're painting a picture. I've never, ever intentionally dissed anybody my whole career, and I don't do that personally with friends either," the Bay Area rapper said. "I'm not like a person to go against anyone or anything. So hey, no offense to you Rick Ross. There's no Rick Ross offensive things going on in there, even though it sounds like it."

Kreayshawn explains why Diddy is her "dad."

Kreayshawn said she doesn't know Ross and was just trying to make words rhyme. Hopefully things turn up for Kreay on Sunday, August 28, at the 2011 VMAs. She is up Best New Artist alongside other hip-hop rising stars, including Big Sean, Wiz Khalifa and Tyler, the Creator, as well as rock group Foster the People.
