"Ya'll don't wanna fuck with me cuz how I came up and bc I'm white."
Bhad Bhabie took to Instagram to vent over the weekend and it's pretty clear she's got an issue with people not buying her music. The 'Bestie' rapper said she was "done" with music and thinks the problem may be because of how her rap career began… and the colour of her skin.

If you remember, Bhad Bhabie – born Danielle Bregoli – got her start on Dr Phil, where her mother Barbara brought her to get help for her unruly behaviour. She famously asked an audience member to "cash her outside, how bow dat?" and the rest is history.
"Ya'll will promote half these female rappers that dead ass suck ya'll only fuck with most of them cuz they pretty or you like they 'style'," she wrote on her Instagram Story. "I promise you these bitches anit on that but when it comes to me a bitch that can really rap ya'll don't wanna fuck with me cuz how I came up and bc I'm white."
Bhad Bhabie then added a list of female rappers excluded from her last post, including Megan Thee Stallion and Asian Da Brat. She also followed declared she was "done" with music after her initial comment went viral, before changing her mind again.
"I’m done rapping y’all got your wish," she wrote. "Nah fuck that – I ain’t quitting shit."

Later, Bhad Bhabie appeared to have a change of heart. She tweeted: "I say dumb shit sometimes. It’s called being 16 and crazy."
Despite her feelings about her rap career, it doesn't appear that she's short of publicity or money-making power. At just 16, she has just signed a new $1 million publishing deal with Pulse Music Group, TMZ reports.
Pulse is home to artists like James Blake and Ty Dolla $ign – and she'll be taking home a large chunk of that $1million. Bhad Bhabie will reportedly receive $350,000 up front, as well as two $325,000 instalments once she hits her revenue targets. She'll also reportedly receive at least 70 percent of her future record sales, licensing fees and digital streaming.
And lets not forget her lucrative deals with Snapchat and CopyCat Beauty. According to Bhad Bhabie News, her net worth is thought to now be between $6million to $8 million. Not at all bad for a struggling, white female rapper, huh?
