Yung Miami Laughs Off People Hating On Her Rap Style

The City Girl hasn't caught much of a break these days, but she continues to move forward with confidence. Yung Miami recently responded to people on Twitter criticizing her rap performance on the remix of Lola Brooke's "Don't Play With It." Moreover, she hopped on Brooke's track alongside Latto and delivered what many fans considered to be either heat or a heap of mediocrity. For example, one user tweeted at her with, "Don't even say that you literally TOP 10 best female rappers out rn." For this, and a few other comments, the 29-year-old had some confident and unfazed responses.

"Don't know bout the best and all that but I be popping my s**t," she replied to the comment above. Furthermore, she actually held back on talking placements and lists and focused on what she really cares about: giving her best performance possible and making something she's proud of. In fact, that was the underlying sentiment of a lot of her tweets. "I know it's popular to say I can't rap but I ate that verse," she said in a separate tweet with heart-surrounded smiley face emojis. "DONT PLAY WITH IT REMIX OUT NOW!!!"

Yung Miami Unfazed By People Dissing Her Rap Style

Also, she continued her responses, even to people that had some slight praise and undercut it with a jab. "I love the confidence," one tweeter began, "but it sound like you be having a lot of spit in your mouth. Either that or your tongue just BIG AF." To that, Caresha responded with, "That's my sound get used to it b***h." Unfortunately, the "Act Up" collaborator also faced a lot of clowning for her performance on BMF. While it certainly isn't a mind-blowing performance by any means, it's still great to see someone primarily dedicated to music venture into other lanes. The nicest sentiment online was along the lines of "at least she tried," which undercuts how much fun she clearly had with it.

However, her confidence clearly wasn't enough to lessen the blow, as she went at people online and launched a lot of frustrated statements in response to hate. Still, all that said, she did get a notable defense from Method Man, who encouraged Miami to keep her head up. With that in mind, a word of encouragement can drown out thousands of naysayers, and it helps that he's also a rap vet venturing into TV. Regardless, check out her responses and a clip of the remix above and return to HNHH for the latest on Yung Miami.
