Lil Yachty and Bhad Bhabie have worked together on music in the past, but recently they have been gradually implementing their working relationship Invest in an exclusive dating app for Jews called Lox Club. While they may be business partners, the two rappers don’t always see each other – especially when it comes to cultural fit. The two had a heated discussion on the subject on Instagram Live, with Yachty attempting to explain that Bhabie didn’t quite have the exact definition.
Since appearing on Dr. Phil Show and began her career in rap music, Bhabie, born Danielle Bregoli, was constantly calling for cultural appropriation. Even though Bhabie is white, she has been accused of building her brand on emulating Black culture. She had her braided hair in the box, slang terms used in her music, and simply refuse when the black woman asked her to stop. Although the definition of cultural appropriation tends to be malleable, it is often understood as the act of a person taking on aspects of a minority culture to which they do not belong and profiting from it. However, Bhabie disagrees with that definition.
Bhabie took part in an Instagram Live session with Yachty, where she lashed out at her criticisms. “One thing that I’m really, really sick of is ‘Bhad Bhabie is a cultural usurper,’ she said. “No. You all make these words have different terms from what they mean. Cultural appropriation is if I sit up and say, ‘Oh. A certain race looks ugly to that thing. ‘ And then I did it myself. Take braids for example. If I say a Black girl looks ugly with braids and then I go get them, that’s written appropriation. Or when girls put chopsticks in their hair, it’s cultural appropriation. It’s doing something negative with someone’s culture.”
Yachty interrupted, “Dude. F*ck what are you talking about? That is not the argument. ” Bhabie then went on to scream about people criticizing her “hooded voice” as Yachty sighed and groaned in the background. “This has nothing to do with it,” Yachty said before Bhabie cut him off again.
Before hanging up, Yacthy was able to say one last word. “In fact, now you understand that in the room you are shouting at the phone screen. For what? ” Bhabie replied, “It makes me feel better.”
