Bhad Bhabie Celebrates Her Rags-to-Riches Rise on New Song “Mama Don’t Worry (Still Ain’t Dirty)”
Bhad Bhabie (a.k.a. "Cash Me Ousside" girl) has been on a tear since christening her budding rap career with “These Heaux” in August. In the last four months, she’s unveiled three more singles, and now, she’s added “Mama Don’t Worry (Still Ain’t Dirty)” to her burgeoning discography.
The song, produced by DJ Chose, champions her unconventional rise from internet meme to blossoming rapper. She recounts her rough upbringing in South Florida, rhyming about being her own parent, selling pills “like they were skittles” and almost getting “cuffed” by the police. But now, she says, she’s “escaped the belly of the beast without a stain” and is raking in big dollars because of it.
“Now my mama straight, I ain't gotta push no weight/I came from dirt, now I’m living great/ Said I won’t gone made it, look how hard they hated/ Never had enough and now the bank we break it,” Bhabie proclaims on the smooth-riding track before diving into the chorus. “Did all this dirt and still ain't dirty/Baby, I'm outchea so don't worry/I'm in the field without no jersey/Did all this dirt and still ain't dirty.”
At one point, she even references her stint on Dr. Phil—the catalyst for her newfound stardom—but makes clear she’s put that chapter behind her. “Reckless on that show, man that’s old news,” she raps.
The single follows previously released entries “Hi Bich,” “Whachu Know,” “I Got It,” the aforementioned “These Heaux” and a handful of remixes. She’s since landed a multi-million dollar record deal with Atlantic, but hasn’t yet announced plans for a full-length project.
