Doja Cat Warns People to Not Disrespect Her as a Rapper
Women rappers always find themselves the topic of conversation on Twitter, whether it’s for how they rap, dress or their contributions to the hip-hop game. This time around, Doja Cat responds to people wondering if she’s technically a rapper, and she’s urging everyone to put some respect on her pen.
On Friday (May 28), Doja Cat responded to the backlash over the BET Awards 2021 nominations for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist. “DONT EVER FUCKIN DISRESPECT ME AS A RAPPER. AFTER THE LAST SONG I DROPPED YOU WILL RESPECT MY PEN AND THATS FUCKIN THAT. Stream Very Best,” Doja wrote in a tweet.
The 25-year-old rapper/singer was nominated alongside other rhymers like Saweetie, Cardi B, Coi Leray, Megan Thee Stallion and Latto (FKA Mulatto). Upon the announcement, which happened on Thursday (May 27), social media users went on platforms like Twitter and Instagram to express their issues with the nominees in the category this year.
One Twitter user wrote, “Wtf is Doja cat doin on this list? BET is for the birds.”
Several comments like this one appeared on social media, causing the Los Angeles native to respond to the inquiries regarding whether or not she is an MC fit to be nominated for this category.
Other people took issue with the women who were chosen, stating that rappers like Flo Milli and Yung Baby Tate should have been nominated for this year’s award ceremony.
Another person said, “Flo Milli and Yung Baby Tate not being candidates for BET awards is not sitting right with me.”
Since Doja Cat is a mainstream artist, many people seem to forget that the “Streets” artist does indeed rap on most of her songs. She also includes catchy melodies and choruses.
