K. Flay

In recent months, 22-year-old Kreayshawn and her fluttering eyelashes have stood out as the symbol of modern-day white-girl rap. But now there's a new Bay Area lady-spitter stirring up the convo. K. Flay (the stage name of Kristine Flaherty) is a native Chicagoan with a degree from, yes, Stanford University. Thanks to her official Santigold-featuring remix of The Beastie Boys' "Don't Play No Game That I Can't Win" and her taut, chilly flow on her three-part mixtape I Stopped Caring in '96, she has notoriously prissy music outlets referring to her as "the next big thing in hip-hop." We have to agree — without the prissiness, of course.
