Is Bhad Bhabie the Worst Thing to Happen to Rap and Hip Hop?



Danielle Bregoli’s father, Ira Peskowitz, also thinks she shouldn’t have gotten a record deal.

I can see why people aren’t liking hip hop and rap anymore.

When you have groups or artists like XXXTENTACION, Lil Pump, Migos, Playboi Carti, and SmokePurpp being the main stars in the genre, it makes rap and hip hop look godawful. But what if I told you there’s an even worse “rapper” on the scene? A “rapper” who’s so horrible that she makes mumble rappers sound like modern day Shakespeares?

Insert Bhad Bhabie (pronounced Bad Baby) a Florida based “rapper” who started her career only a few weeks ago. Now, you may know her by her real name, Danielle Bregoli. If that’s not familiar enough, she appeared on Dr. Phil back in September 2016 where she uttered her infamous catchphrase “Cash me ousside how bout dah?,” which blew up online earlier this year. That’s right, she’s now a musician, and that’s not all, she got signed to the major record label Atlantic Records (3OH!3, Lil Uzi Vert, Portugal. The Man) just last month.

Bregoli released her first single “These Heaux” (it’s the word “ho” but with the French suffix -eaux, because it’s fancy or some other crap) back in August, which caught the attention of Atlantic after they saw how well the song was doing online. “These Heaux” currently has over 34 million views on YouTube.  The viral sensation’s viral sensation reached number 77 on the Billboard Hot 100, making her the youngest female rap artist to debut on the chart (good for her, I guess.) She also released two other songs “Hi Bich” and “Watchu Know” late last month and put the two songs together to form one music video, which right now has 22 million views. God help us all.

So why am I writing this article? Why would I waste my time writing an article about some POS who’s abusive towards her mom, acts like she’s some hood rat, and tries her damnedest to sound like the white version of Kodak Black and Lil Kim? It’s because she’s 14. That’s right, she’s basically still a child. She’s just some white 14-year-old girl who’s trying to act like she was born from Compton and constantly talks about the hoes and bitches (that’s what she calls her haters.) Listen to one of her songs and be shocked that it’s a 14-year-old who’s making rap songs that contain the words “bitch,” “ho,” and “fuck.”

I, myself, am a musician. I play music under the name Nurse Joyful. I understand that it’s hard for artists like me to breakout into the scene or the spotlight. But I don’t think she deserves the major label deal. It’s not because I think her music is just shit, but that I don’t believe she’s even trying. She got famous because of a catchphrase that social media quickly spread like wildfire back in January. I mean, she even boasted to Dr. Phil months later on his show that she made him relevant again (“You were nothin’ before I came on this show,” she said to Dr. Phil’s face.)

I’m just annoyed that she’s trying to be a rapper. Her lyrics are lazy, yet the producers she’s worked with help her sound actually listenable. She worked with producer Ronny J (Denzel Curry, Lil Pump, Ski Mask the Slump God) on “Hi Bich” and producers PriceTag (Audio Push, Logic, Travis Scott) and Mando Fresh (Meek Mill, Tdot Illdude, Young Chris) on “These Heaux.” She even appeared on remixes on songs by Kodak Black (“Roll in Peace”) and Tee Grizzley featuring Lil Yatchy (“From the D to the A.”) Her attitude is outrageous and is probably the reason why parents should spank their children more often. It’s not child abuse, it’s tough love.

However there is some silver lining to this massive train wreck of a girl, she won’t be relevant in a few years. I give it a year or two before people forget about her. Cash me ousside, Dani, how bout dah?
