Former Flipmode Squad member Rah Digga has unleashed her fury toward Odd Future's Tyler, the Creator on a new track called "N*gga In Me."
In her diss, Digga pokes fun at Tyler's perceived lack of an African American audience.
Tyler, the Creator caught the wrath of Rah Digga by saying Happy Father's Day to her over and over again on Twitter. So she took it another level with thes vitriolic lines: "I was trying to support this young black man / It's too bad, you probably lost your only black fan," she snarls. "Take it any further, and you might catch a backhand, b*tch." (International Business Times)
She also dished out a statement to defend the choice words and direct disses.
In 1999, Rah Digga released Dirty Harriet, one of the best hip hop records in a competitive year. Thirteen years later, a few younger artists have been dropping her name (and MC Lyte's), but not with the respect typically given to artists with their track records. As a result, on her latest track, "The N*gga in Me," Rah Digga calls out both Fat Trel and Tyler, The Creator for their off-color remarks. In an accompanying statement, she says, "I wish em all the best, they just need to understand who is off limits. MC Lyte is off limits. Rah Digga is off limits. Respect those who kept hip hop raw so that we could still have a culture or get a first hand lesson in a lyrical a** whoopin." (The FADER)
Along with the statement, Digga told Twitter fans she is not using the track for publicity purposes.
"In my 20 YEARS of putting out music I've never engaged in publicity stunts. Where I come from u say my name u get served. Simple. &. Plain.," she tweeted April 6th.
"NO I'm not doing the cliche "drop a diss b4 an album"....I'm not promoting anything...I was actually just getting n2 this new Resident Evil."
"@SkyHighKhi_ there's no "beef"...I don't do "rap beefs"....I rap for fun...folks had their fun w/me I'm havin mine...I'm a good sport..." (Rah Digga's Twitter)
Recently, Tyler, the Creator said he would not apologize to rap veteran MC Lyte over dissing her on a record.
"I don't know if she's gay or not," Tyler said referring to Lyte. "It was a joke. But if she took offense, so be it -- I'm not gonna apologize, but I didn't mean for her feelings to get hurt. Usually people in that position, you'd think they would laugh it off and go on with their day. But I guess she caught feelings. I didn't mean to do that, but whatever." (Drama Like The DJ)
