After a fallout with the group of Oakland lady rappers, Lil Debbie launched her own career, teaming up with RiFF RaFF for a few over-the-top videos. When she’s not smoking gold-woven blunts, starting beef on Twitter, or accusing Miley Cyrus of stealing her culturally appropriated persona, Lil Debbie brattily raps about weed and haters and Michelle Obama over junky beats that maddeningly lodge themselves deep in my brain. And yours, too, maybe, if you go to her spectacle of a show. ROBIN EDWARDS
