Kreayshawn and 2 Chainz are eating ’Breakfast’ together.
After 2 Chainz put out the video for their collaboration “Murder” last week, Kreayshawn rides that internet wave and drops “Breakfast (Syrup),” the long-awaited and highly anticipated follow-up to last summer’s “Gucci, Gucci” and the first single off her upcoming debut album. Is this good? I can’t really tell.

But does it even matter? “Breakfast” is a synthed-out 808 party jam that’s not breaking any ground, but it’s catchy. Just when Kreay’s voice or face (or a combination of the two) is about to give you a stroke, 2 Chainz (who’s now legally required to be on every new rap song) shows up in a rain jacket with two gallons of syrup to save the day. And it’s a good thing he does because you’re going to hear this song coming from every pink iPhone in the suburbs for the next three months.
“Breakfast” is one of those thinly veiled drug songs that teens love because their clueless parents will think it’s just about starting your day off with a balanced meal. Haha, stupid parents… Enjoy having your 20-year-old college dropout with a codeine dependency and $20,000 in nondeferrable student loan debt move back home. You will never be free! All because of the tiny, unassuming Kreayshawn and her adorable antics.
The Oakland auteur (she directed the video, you guys…) drops her debut album, Somethin ’Bout Kreay, Aug. 14 on Columbia.
