Rappers are always the topic of conversation on Twitter, whether it’s the way they rap, dress or their contributions to the hip-hop game. This time, Doja cat answers people who wonder if she’s technically a rapper, and she urges everyone to put some respect on his pen.
Friday (May 28), Doja cat responded to the backlash from the 2021 BET Awards nominations for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist. “NEVER RESPECT ME AS A RAPPER. AFTER THE LAST SONG I RELEASED YOU WILL RESPECT MY PEN AND THAT’S FUCKIN THAT. Spread the best,” Doja wrote in a tweet.
The 25-year-old rapper / singer has been nominated alongside other rhymers including Saweetie, Cardi B, Coi Leray, Megan Thee Stallion and Latto (FKA Mulatto). In the announcement, which took place Thursday, May 27, social media users took to platforms like Twitter and Instagram to voice their concerns with the category nominees this year.
One Twitter user wrote: “Wtf is Doja cat doin on this list? BET is for birds.”
Several comments like this popped up on social media, prompting the Los Angeles native to respond to inquiries about whether or not she was a suitable MC to be nominated in this category.
Other people took issue with the women who were chosen, saying rappers like Flo Milli and Yung Baby Tate should have been nominated for this year’s awards ceremony.
Another person said, “Flo Milli and Yung Baby Tate are not a candidate for the BET awards are not suitable for me.”
Since Doja cat is a mainstream artist, many people seem to forget that the “Streets” artist actually raps on most of her songs. It also includes catchy melodies and choruses.
Any guesses on dollar amounts before looking?
