Although the tune is firmly engrained in British culture, now there's thousands of recreation videos, with many TikTok users from around the world jamming to the intoxicating sound of the British rapper. But where does the song come from?

What is the M to the B song on TikTok?

It was December 2016, a simpler time. Some were getting ready to receive Christmas presents but little did the internet know, it was about to receive a priceless gift – Millie B. The Blackpool-based grime artist released a series of diss tracks aimed at her arch rival Sophie Aspin. Yep, if you thought Tupac and Biggie had beef then just wait.

The aspiring rappers regularly threw shots – or "sent for" – at each other through the BG Media YouTube page, which posted clips from up-and-coming grime artists from around the Blackpool area.

That's when the viral diss track was born. In case you're wondering, Sophie recorded a diss track reply (at the local supermarket) but sadly it didn't go quite as viral as Millie B's.

Who is Sophie Aspin?

Sophie Aspin is a former grime rapper from Manchester, UK, who moved to Blackpool as a teenager. She's the girl spoken about in the infamous "M to the B" or 'Sophie Aspin Send' song which has been blowing up on TikTok lately.

She's even responded to the infamous track on TikTok. She said: "Can someone please tell all these Americans what's going on? They're doing all this, 'M to the B, M to the B' and they're following a B, it's not fucking about a B. It's about me!"

What are the M to the B lyrics?

If you don't know me I'm M to the B
Coming in hard, you better watch it Sophie
You think you're the only girl doing grime
M to the B says, "Step in line"
Coming in hard with my bars
Sophie Aspin is about to get parred

Read your bars off your iPhone 4
I don't do that shit, I do it hardcore
Got murked by Little T
Now you're gettin' murked by me

You shagged bare lads, you're a little sket
Have you heard your bars? They're fucking pep
Fucking pep, yeah, that's what they are
Now listen carefully to my sick bars
They scream my name like, "Yar, yar, yar"
Sophie, yeah, you're a little whore

Looking at your face, what the fuck's your contour?
Do you want me to lend you a blender?

I'm being serious, I'm not trying to offend you
Sophie, yeah, you should stick to singing
'Cause when you spit, my ears are ringing
How can you shag bare lads?
Is your fanny not stinging?
I bet your fanny's fucking minging

Sort out your manky Scouse brow
M to the B is coming at you with a row
You're enough to turn all lads camp
You know that 'cause you're a fucking tramp
Repping around in your shit clothes
Like Josh said, what the fuck's that pose?
Saying shit about people's mums, that's tight
Sophie Aspin, do you want me a fight?
Bet your blowies are fucking shite

Fuckin' shite, that's what I said
All the boys say you give shit head
That's what I said so what you gonna do?
All the things you spit about aren't even true
Sophie Aspin, little rat
I bet you're riddled and probs got the clap
Soph, yeah, you can't murk me

You're a slag, riddled with STDs
Fuck that shit, couldn't be arsed being you
You're an animal, you belong in a zoo
I'm sending for you so what're you gonna do?
You bounce on next man's dick like a kangaroo, like a kangaroo
So, Soph, where do we go from here?
If I send back, I'll throw you off the pier
I'm sending for you with no fear
So come on Soph, what's the best you can give?
Your bars are shit so you may as well quit
You may as well quit 'cause your bars are shit
Your bars are fake and my bars are real
Is it true you got bummed on a field?

You think you're a chav with your string jacket
Turn Sophie Aspin off, what a fucking racket
What a fucking racket
We all know, the best MC
It's M to the B, it's M to the B
It's M M M M M to the B
It's M to the B, it's M to the B
Bang

Sophie, you're not the only girl who can spit bars
I've just showed you how it's done
You said you're not gonna send back
We'll see, won't we

Does Millie B have a child?

We know, you're dying to know what ever happened to Millie B and Sophie Aspin – where are they now? Are they still beefing? Did they ever top the charts? Well, no. Sophie Aspin, now 18, decided to take a step back from grime and progress onto a different genre. She has her own YouTube channel and featured in a short documentary on Channel 4 about leaving grime behind last year.

Sadly, Millie appears to have quit music altogether. Her Instagram page is private, but according to her Facebook, she welcomed a baby girl named Gracie-Lee in September 2018 and she sells Avon products.

She is on TikTok now, though, where she has been capitalising on her renewed fame. You can find her on @milliebracewell5.
