Lil Debbie — formerly of Kreayshawn’s White Girl Mob — is gearing up for the release of her second EP, California Sweetheart. But, she has a chip on her shoulder and a bad taste in her mouth from the industry.
In a recent interview with HipHopDX, the Bay Area rapper broke down some of the negatives she’s dealt with… including hate from other rappers like Iggy Azalea.
“I reached out to Iggy Azalea before she blew up and the bitch acted like she was too good for me, and that sucks,” Debbie said, before claiming that Miley Cyrus stole her identity.
“I’m just gonna say this right now. Miley Cyrus has reached out to multiple white female rappers that I’ve been involved with and that I’ve reach out to, and people completely ignore me,” she continued. “I think that goes along with identity theft… It f*cking sucks. I would have rather been Miley Cyrus’ friend and would have been girly-girly with her, than to feel the way I feel towards her. I don’t wanna feel like she stole my f*cking sh*t from me. I don’t wanna feel like that, but when I see her converse with all these other female rappers, I get butt hurt about it.”
Debbie also unapologetically admits to having others write her rhymes, calling others to action for doing the same thing, but denying it. “I’m never going to sit in front of a camera and be like ‘I write every single word on my verses’ because I don’t,” she says. “I hate every white female artist that is sitting there fronting that they do write their own sh*t. But, so many people do it. Some of people’s favorite songs that are on the radio right now are ghostwritten. I don’t see what’s wrong with it.
“I mean, I don’t even wanna say it, but some of Beyonce’s… Nicki Minaj, most of her stuff is purely hers, but I’ve heard from a couple of people that some of her stuff, like the tune, the way the flow is, sh*t like that might be written. I might be wrong, who knows.”
What do you think? Is Debbie speaking the truth, or beyond her depth?
California Sweetheart is due out March 25th. Pre-order now at iTunes.
