You’ve probably seen this popular African American comedian and content creator’s videos floating on social media at one time or another. We had a chance to sit down and connect with C. Crave (born Christopher Cravens) aka ‘Ccraveisforever’ to do an exclusive Jackfroot video interview.
Throughout the past several years, C. Crave has created some hilarious relatable videos that have been virally shared throughout the internet. Most of the content that he creates revolves around the Asian culture and community.
Often times, you might see comments and feedback under posts from both the Asian and Black community questioning the type of content he makes and saying things like “he’s clout chasing” or being a “wannabe”.
In this interview, we get to learn more about how this fast growing social media personality started, how and where he grew up, cultural appropriation, and who inspires him.
C. Crave currently resides in Los Angeles, but grew up in Stockton, CA, where there is a predominantly large community of Cambodian people.
Check out the interview:
“Don’t listen to anybody. Put all of the negative stuff aside.”
Being a content creator can be difficult, especially with all of the negative hate and comments from online trolls and keyboard warriors.
“Stay in your lane and do what’s comfortable to you.” C. Crave shares some personal advice for other creators/influencers and how to deal with haters.
During the interview, he talks about how life was like being Black and growing up around a lot of Asians. He mentions that after getting to know some of Asian families, he was able to change out Black folks were perceived in their eyes.
Another controversial topic discussed was what he thinks when he hears Asian people using the ‘N’ word. We often hear some Asian rappers using this word, whether it’s in the way they talk, or in music. C. Crave explains and breaks down the term and when he knows someone is using it in a racial or degrading way.
