Riff: Bhad Bhabie – “Hi Bich”

Oct 11, 2017

Why you counting all that money that we got?/I ain’t worried ’bout no basic bitches/All y’all look like you still fly Spirit/All y’all must not’ve looked in the mirror

from Hi Bich / Whachu Know lyrics by Bhad Bhabie

Building a foundation upon sand with a style of rap that is in a word: garbage. She’s pulling from the avalanche of hate that has come her way, and capitalizing off her fifteen minutes of fame without an ounce of shame. Forget integrity and talent, her M.O. is based on agitation and flippancy. She’s an audible cold sore, a parking ticket on payday, the end of innocence for rap. To make matters worse, the beat is nothing more than droning bass, white noise and static. Truth is it’s a perfect jump off for a character posing as a lyricist. Cultural tourism at its finest.
