Foul-mouthed rappers with a love of smoking dope and calling people a ‘broke a** b****’ don’t come much smaller than nine-year-old Lil Tay.
The tiny hip hop star and internet sensation uses her Snapchat to boast about ‘trapping out in six star hotels’ and claims to own five houses.
Now she’s also caught up in a beef with fellow female rap stars Woah Vicky and Bhad Barbie (of ‘cash me ousside how bow dah’ fame).
So who is this pint-sized OG, where does she come from and how come she was at Coachella?
Lil Tay is an American rapper aged nine who claims to have started rapping at the age of seven and describes her sound as ‘steady flow into the outro’.
No one quite knows Tay’s real name, but she has stated that she used to live in Atlanta, Georgia, and was ‘broke as f***’ three years ago.
Reflecting on her transformation, she added: ‘But one day I woke up and I said I to myself ain’t going to be broke no more. So I got up and worked hard, started moving bricks and now we be living in the hills.’
Aside from her soulful reflections on her youth, she’s also known for her foul-mouthed online posts on Instagram.
She regularly comes out with statements like: ‘I’m a 9 year old millionaire and I be smoking dope, b****. Shut your mouth before I smack you, auntie.’
One of her videos shows her jumping in a flash sports car, as she says: ‘This s*** cost me two hundred thousand! I’m only nine years old I ain’t got no license but I still drive this sports car, b****. Your favorite rapper ain’t even doing it like Lil Tay.’
She says her favourite track is Gucci Gang by Lil Pump, and in the near future she’ll appear in her first music video with Chief Keef, as advertised on her Instagram.
On April 16, 2018, Tay was filmed getting involved in (or at least witnessing) a fight between Bhad Barbie and Woah Vicky.
Later she responded to the fight by attacking Bhad Barbie online, writing: ‘How a girl gone talk bout Gucci flip flops when u only can afford tank tops/Btw you look like a rat with draw one eyebrows…(sic)
‘Tf happens to ur eye brows/Ima smack yo mama when I see her…. Broke ass b****,you can’t fight for s*** and you a b****…
‘F*** Bhad Bhabie, she tryna act all cool with her bodyguard, but she can’t do s***. She can’t even punch right, cause she a p****.’
Tay happened to side with Woah Vicky because she was part of her entourage at Coachella, the US music festival, though she did not perform.
WARNING: THIS VIDEO CONTAINS SWEARING.
Some people have spotted that among Tay’s team are the same men who are always filming her.
They’re concerned she is being forced into doing all the internet-worthy things she gets up to.
