k.flay skips the kitsch, gets straight to the rapping

Oakland rapper k. flay keeps her 'Eyes Shut' and her feet on the ground.

"To be honest I think in a way it was a bad situation for her. Anybody who has that big of a blow up, there's so much pressure implicit in that. I would be freaked out if that had happened to me early on. I'm happy for anybody who is going to be successful as long as they're obviously not like supporting genocide or doing something terrible."

This is not k.flay's first rodeo. Her debut album, Suburban Rap Queen, came out in 2004. And the new album? She feels great about where she was at creatively when she made it. And so maybe now she's ready for viral. Asked about projects for the future, besides the frenetic touring that will mark her 2012, her answer implies a readiness for the next step in what'll hopefully be a long career.

"I'm down to do anything, down for whatever."
