Making her inexplicable rise from viral meme to sold-out shows, the rapper known as Bhad Bhabie issued her debut mixtape, 15, two years after a fateful appearance on Dr. Phil launched her into pop culture notoriety. Titled after her age at the time of release, 15 is a defiant, tough-talking batch of serviceable, Metro Boomin-esque trap tracks that is surprisingly enjoyable.
At the tender age of 13, Danielle Bregoli’s bold defiance and foul-mouthed antics shocked Dr. Phil’s audience during a 2016 episode. Her “cash me ousside, how bout dat” catchphrase quickly morphed into internet gold and pummeled its way into pop culture like a boulder tumbling down a cliffside. Soon, Bregoli’s “career” was off and running.
When Danielle Bregoli went viral as the "Cash Me Outside" girl in early 2017, few people expected, much less wanted her to stick around. Memes, by their nature, are supposed to be disposable. But music executive Adam Kluger saw a way to capitalize on the widespread attention surrounding the unruly Floridian teenager, even if she had more haters than fans.
