Rising to viral fame as the “Cash Me Outside” girl after appearing on Dr. Phil in 2016, Danielle Bregoli rebranded in 2017 as Bhad Bhabie. Unlike most of the polished young stars on this list, the hyperconfident Florida rapper stokes feuds and brushes off haters on social media. (She has 15.4 million Instagram followers.) Her pugnacious persona is the driving force behind 2017 Hot 100-charting singles “Hi Bich” and “These Heaux,” both found on her September debut mixtape, 15. Next, she’ll hit the road with Lil Yachty, who features on her new hit, “Gucci Flip Flops.”
How have people treated you based on your age?
Some are weird about it, some aren't. It’s not really every day where I’m like, “God, I’m 15. I can’t do nothing.” Last year, I was backstage at Day N Night fest [in California], and someone was like, “We’re really going to have this little-ass girl back here?” I was like, “Am I doing stuff you need to be older to do?”
