Tensions have been high between Remy Ma and Doja for a minute. However, a recent response from Remy proves she’s had enough that when it comes to Doja, she’s not even entertaining a conversation.
Sometimes Things are Misunderstood
There is no secret that there is a fair amount of competition in the rap game. Artists calling each other out is not a new thing. However, given this tiff, it is clear that one of the highest insults is when another artist takes a shot at your identity in the game. Though Remy contends her recent statements had no malice, that’s not how Doja saw it.
Remy Ma Keeps It One Hundred
In a March interview, Remy Ma held nothing back regarding her view of where Doja Cat fell in the industry. While on Drink Champs, Remy Ma stated she didn’t see Doja Cat as a rapper. In Remy’s words,
“I don’t think she’s a rapper. Let’s be clear with that. They put her in the rapper category. I don’t think she’s a rapper.”
However, Doja Cat and her fan club weren’t feeling what Remy put out. So, they came back hard.
Remy is Not Feeling It
So Remy recently sat down for another interview. And when the topic of Doja Cat came up, she was more than clear. She wasn’t entertaining a conversation. Why?
Remy didn’t see how her initial point of view initiated such a blowback. Remy was merely speaking the truth based on her experience, knowledge, and what the industry put forth. The artist didn’t take anything away from Doja. Instead, she was upping Doja by complimenting the artist in her mind. While her words may have hit bitter, the intention wasn’t malicious. After all, she did say something good about Doja.
“I don’t think she’s a rapper. But she makes dope records, and I think she’s dope.”
That’s certainly a compliment.
Perspective is Everything
It’s all a matter of perspective. But, Apparently, Doja felt that Remy’s statement was a blow to her identity. As a source notes, Doja has always identified as a rapper. In a 2021 social media response, this is what Doja had to say,
“Don’t ever f***** disrespect me as a rapper. After the last song, I dropped you will respect my pen and that’s f***** that.”
Given that statement, it’s clear that Doja is serious about her label in the industry. But that brings to question what about the awards she’s won in non-rap categories?
Regardless Remy’s Had Enough
Remy Ma is done. After the fallout resulting from a simple perspective, she has no more time or f’s to give when it comes to Doja.
“Don’t even bring her up. I thought I was giving [her] a compliment. Her whole entourage or fan base came for my life. I was like ‘I thought I said something good!”
So, who can blame her?
Whether Remy is correct or Doja is irrelevant. Both contributors to the culture are entitled to their perspectives. The bigger question is, why does another’s opinion hold so much weight? If you’re still doing the thing, what does it matter?
