    In case you couldn’t tell, Lil Tay is unlike any other nine-year-old.

    For starters, she spits verses to a million followers on Instagram.

    In fact, she just collaborated with another rapper — their video comes out soon.

    Allegedly the owner of five houses, Lil Tay calls herself the “youngest flexer of the century.”

    She says she drinks your college tuition.

    “Ohh, Lil Tay be trapping out at six star hotels. And I got the iPhone X. What y’all broke a** b****es have? Y’all have iPhone 5. And I be drinking your college tuition b***h. Lil Tay be drinking good. I got this Gucci lint roller, this s**t cost me six thou. And I be using it to brush off all your raggedy a**, h**s. This iPhone cost me two thousand bucks, what y’all know about that life? Y’all ain’t going living like Lil Tay. Lil Tay money way b***h.”

    She also claims to drive without a license.

    Word about Lil Tay apparently spread when people spotted a little girl beside another internet personality, Woah Vicky, who got into a physical altercation with fellow rapper Bhad Bhabie Nude at Coachella.

    “F**k Bhad Bhabie, she a b***h. She can’t do s**t, she can’t even punch right, she a p***y,” she said afterwards.

    She’s also known for her feud with RiceGum, another online celebrity.

    Netizens have since been divided about Lil Tay; some are extremely supportive, while others think her “act” has gone too far.

    Many are wondering where her parents are — gossip channel Opus Magnum speculating that they’ve discovered her mother, who appears to be supporting her in all of this.

    Lil Tay used to have a Twitter account where she generously used the word the n-word, but that apparently got her suspended.

    While she vomits expletives, the young rapper has her own unique way of motivating people.

    “When I was 6 years old, I lived in Atlanta and I was broke as hell. But one day I woke up and I said I to myself ain’t going to be broke no more. So I got up and worked hard, started moving bricks and now we be living in the hills.”

    The comments are entertaining in their own way:

    LIL TAY ON TOP! Next time anyone try and cross me they gon catch these hands!
