“I don’t think she’s a rapper,” Remy said during a recent interview Drink Champs’ DJ EFN and N.O.R.E. “Let’s be clear with that. They put her in the rapper category, I don’t think she’s a rapper. But she makes dope records, and I think she’s dope.”
Twitter users debated the idea, with one fan writing, “Remy Ma come from an era of traditional Rap. There is nothing wrong w| Doja Cat being a Pop Rapper but they shouldn’t be grouped w| REAL HIPHOP ARTIST.”
“I’m sorry but Remy saying Doja cat not a rapper is wild to me cuz then what the f— is she?!! Why we putting rappers in one box??” another added from the other perspective.
For her Saweetie collaboration “Best Friend,” Doja was nominated for best melodic rap performance at the 64th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday (April 3).
Her collaboration with SZA, “Kiss Me More,” is up for record and song of the year, as well as best pop duo/group performance. Planet Her, her hit-filled album, is nominated for album of the year and best pop vocal album.
