Rah Digga, who has been rapping since 1995 with Busta Rhymes' Flipmode Squad as well as independently, decided to emerge from what most would say was a dormant career to crush the criticism that had been thrown at her by Tyler, the Creator (of Odd Future) and Fat Trel.
So she released a new track aimed at slamming them, and did just that, topping their childish jibes with hard-hitting raps. She explained her reasoning for dropping the single thusly:
I didn't make this record for press purposes or for hype cuz that's not my thing, she said. I got wind of various artists referencin' me in a negative fashion. They poked fun at me I'm just pokin back. Its all sport to me. 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 ass whoopin. Love is love.
Fat Trel insulted Rah Digga by saying this silly line on a song: The b---h might be a n---a, for realla, she Rah Digga.
So Digga hit her back on The N---a In Me as follows: This guy, you barely got a meal short of fish fry / Think of letting this slide? / Fat Trel could kiss my global rap a-- / He barely out of D.C., tried to look him up, he ain't even got a Wiki.
She also says: Some say it's beneath me / I should be the bigger artist / But this is what happens / When you get a n---a started.
Fat Trel responded after the track dropped with the following S/O [shout-out] 2 DAT N---A RAH DIGGA! and then retweeted the message I didn't even know rah digga was still alive with the following response SAME S---T I SAID DATTTZXX KRRAAZZZZYYY!!!
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---h!
