“Gucci Gucci” is a song by Kreayshawn, an American hip hop recording artist. The song is the first single from Kreay’s debut studio album, Somethin’ Bout Kreay (2012). Columbia Records released it on June 14, 2011. The single was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America in 2012.
DJ Two Stacks produced the song, and Adeptus added the high hats. It includes a sample from another Kreayshawn song called “Bumpin’ Bumpin.” “Gucci Gucci” peaked at number 57 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the United States. The song was also a hit in Belgium and charted on the hip-hop charts in the UK.
In the song, she expresses her disdain for designer labels like Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Fendi, and Prada.
The song gained popularity after being uploaded to her YouTube channel on May 16, 2011. It received nearly 3 million views in just over two weeks.
The success of the song landed her a record deal with Columbia Records.
The song was co-written by Kreayshawn and hip-hop rapper and ghostwriter Anthony “Speak!” Negrete. Negrete stated in an August 2011 interview with Rebecca Haithcoat of LA Weekly that he had never been paid royalties for his contributions. A remix featuring British rapper Giggs was released. The song was covered by British singer Neon Hitch.
The song received positive feedback. “The song basically attacks a central tenet of hip-hop: many rappers embrace labelism as part of their celebration of upward mobility as well as a postmodern sentiment that you are the brands you wear,” Touré said of the song. He also claimed that the song contained “childishly simple rhyme patterns,” such as “I look like Madonna, but I floss like Ivana.” MTV’s James Montgomery ranked “Gucci Gucci” as the 23rd best song of 2011. Lil Wayne, a hip-hop rapper, remixed the song for his mixtape Sorry 4 the Wait. The song is also included in Pitchfork’s The Top 100 Tracks of 2011, as well as numerous other publications.
