Danielle Bregoli has been on quite a journey, identity wise.
She began her life in the spotlight back in 2016 on Dr Phil as the subject of the segment: ‘I Want To Give Up My Car-Stealing, Knife-Wielding, Twerking 13-Year-Old Daughter Who Tried To Frame Me For A Crime’.
Here Bregoli’s long suffering mum revealed how the gobby teen had been pinching her car and showing an all-round disrespectful attitude, much to the amusement of the studio audience.
Enraged by their mirth, Bregoli turned her fury on the audience members, threatening, ‘cash me outside, how ‘bow dah?’ And just like that, a meme was born; sparking endless gifs and remixes.
Despite not yet being old enough to order a pint, Bregoli has shown a businesswoman’s shrewdness in capitalising on her internet fame.
In 2017, she launched her very first single These Heaux, becoming the youngest ever female artist to debut on on the Billboard Hot 100.
To the shock – and horror – of many, the brat-turned-rapper was snapped up by Atlantic Records on a multi-million dollar, multi-album deal.
Bhad Bhabie was soon being mentioned in the same breath as Nicki Minaj and Cardi B, and hip-hop fans were just about ready to zoom off a sound-proof rocket ship.
Check out an interview with the former ‘Cash Me Outside Girl’ below:
Unsurprisingly for a teenage girl who famously encouraged an entire audience to fight her outside of a television studio, Bregoli isn’t shy about blowing her own trumpet. And she has now delivered some solid gold boasts.
Speaking with TMZ about her success, Bregoli admitted she was up for a ‘low key’ collaboration with Kanye West, an artist she previously described as being the ‘worst’ rapper.
When asked by the reporter about who she would like to collaborate next, the Gucci Flip Flops singer revealed:
You know, I listened to old Kanye, you know, like, old Kanye, but, some of the sh** Kanye has now makes me kinda want a Kanye collab low key I’m not gonna lie, Kanye’s cool, now he is, I think.
Bhad Bhabie also used the interview to reaffirm her enthusiasm to get into the studio with Travis Scott.
She had previously expressed this desire during an interview with Billboard where she described herself as being ‘a huge Travis Scott fan’.
Unfortunately for Bregoli, this collaboration may prove tricky due to her having previously laid into Scott’s girlfriend Kylie Jenner, describing her as a ‘fake ass’ and a ‘sh*tty person.’
@BhadBhabie trust me is a FCKIN VIBE … The growth is crazy you dead ass talented.

Now, ‘haters’ and ‘heaux’ may scoff but Bregoli’s career has reached some pretty dizzying heights and such high-level collabs might not be far out of her grasp.
Bregoli’s June 14 show at The Roxy, Los Angeles completely sold out, which would have been an impressive feat for somebody with twice her years and experience.
When TMZ asked her about this achievement, she simply grinned:
It is what it is, its how life goes for me, I’m used to it.
So who do we think will be phoning Bregoli up first? Kanye or Travis?
