Nas made his triumphant return on Friday (August 14) with the release of “Ultra Black,” the inaugural single from his forthcoming album King’s Disease. Subsequently, Doja Cat began to trend on Twitter after fans heard the blatant diss the Illmatic legend threw in her direction.
“Sometimes I’m over-black, even my clothes are black,” he raps in the first verse. “Cash Money with the white tee and the soldier rag/We goin’ ultra black, unapologetically black/The opposite of Doja Cat, Michael Blackson black.”
Doja has been under the microscope since May when old videos of herself allegedly lurking in racist chatrooms surfaced online. The clips dropped just a day after she was named in Lana Del Rey’s controversial Instagram rant about double standards in the music industry.
Although it was difficult to discern why exactly the #dojacatisoverparty hashtag started trending, some people claimed she said she would “never” want to be black, while others alleged she used to strip online for racist white men. The “Say So” artist was also accused of “forcing herself to vomit, taking a crap on camera, showing herself naked and everything horrible.”
Another video also surfaced for a song Doja did called “Dindu Nuffin,” a phrase that is considered a racial slur used by members of the alt-right community to denounce Black victims of police brutality who claim to be innocent.
In June, Doja issued an apology via Instagram Live for her questionable past, saying, “You won’t find anything of me being racist because I haven’t been racist and I’m well aware that I’m recorded in chat rooms. But, I just wanted you guys to know, for my fans, if you felt disappointed or embarrassed, I’m sorry. It is disappointing to…To be honest, it took me a while to understand what the fuck was going on.”
Doja’s fall from grace happened shortly after her “Say So (Remix)” with Nicki Minaj hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. She has yet to respond to Nas’ jab, but check out Twitter’s very mixed reactions below.
