    It’s nice to see someone build themself up and make it in Hollywood based on talent and hard work, and not just who they know. She literally writes and produces her own music, and started out doing bar gigs. It’s inspiring. I can tell that smoking affected her voice though, but she still sounds great.

    Dija cat is heller refreshing after all the duplicate copies rappers. So unique so much personality. With a daddy being South Afrucan and a mommy being a hippy, an indian inspired upbringing, thats a winner combination for originality. I predict thus : Doja's the next big thing - very soon.
