Yung Miami Says ‘People Always Discredit Black Women’ While Speaking On Criticism Over BET Hip Hop Awards’ ‘Best Hip-Hop Platform’ Win: ‘I Deserve Everything That’s Coming To Me’

Yung Miami wants the people to put some respect on her work ethic!

Recently, City Girls’ Yung Miami and JT stopped by ‘The Breakfast Club’ to promote their new album, ‘RAW.’

Amid the visit, rapstress Yung Miami addressed the scrutiny that followed her BET Hip Hop Awards win earlier this month.

If you didn’t know, the 29-year-old took home the crown for ‘Best Hip-Hop Platform’ for her podcast ‘Caresha Please,’ where she competed against fellow nominees AllHipHop, ‘Drink Champs, HipHopDX, ‘Million Dollaz Worth of Game, Rap Caviar, ‘The Breakfast Club, ‘The Joe Budden Podcast, and XXL.

Subsequent to her victory, many argued that her show hadn’t maintained enough longevity to be considered for the title, and they questioned whether or not it was true to the hip-hop media arena.

Last year’s ceremony saw ‘Caresha Please’ and ‘Drink Champs’ tied for the BET Hip Hop Awards trophy. When speaking of Miami’s achievement on a previous episode of ‘The Breakfast Club,’ Charlamagne tha God hinted that her business bae, Diddy, and a sponsorship from his tequila brand may have had something to do with the “Act Up” artist’s wins.

He said,

“We gotta stop. Salute to Caresha, [I] love Yung Miami to death, but come on now! Two years in a row? I got mad love for Caresha, but you got platforms that come out daily and you got platforms that come out weekly. You know, like the ‘Million Dollaz Worth of Game,’ ‘Drink Champs,’ Joe Budden — like, come on now. Come on, Caresha. I love ‘Caresha Please,’ but was that sponsored by DeLeón?”

However, Miami clapped back, stating that she felt as though she was very much deserving of the prize –regardless of the backlash from the public.

She expressed to Charlamagne tha God and DJ Envy during her latest appearance on their radio show:

“I just feel like people always saying that I don’t deserve stuff. Why I don’t deserve anything? I work hard, I deserve everything. When I just did my first live podcast, the line was around the corner. It’s new! We in a new time; we in a new generation. I’m bringing something new, so why I don’t deserve it?”

Miami then spoke on Charlamagne’s comment about the pace at which she releases episodes of ‘Caresha Please.’ The “I Need a Thug” lyricist elaborated,

“That’s how I wanna run my show, though. I want people to wait; I want my sh*t anticipated. I don’t wanna drop every week.”

She added:

“I just feel like… as a Black woman, people always discrediting us. Like, don’t discredit me. I work hard. I’m away from my kids. I get up every morning; I put in the work. Like, I deserve everything that’s coming to me.”

As for Miami’s runner-ups and everyone else who may have been salty about the win, she concluded with,

“I just feel like I deserve my sh*t. Like, I’m here! Like, God put me here for a reason, and this what he had for me. Like, this was destined for me. So, don’t say I don’t deserve it. Just say you was salty and then I can respect that.”

The Florida native did make it clear that her ‘papi’ Diddy wasn’t involved with her win by bringing up the fact that she hadn’t earned a VMA yet, which he could’ve very well “bought” as well.

Additionally, she cleared up what she meant by saying that she wanted to be the “Black Oprah.” As previously reported, Miami voiced her hosting dreams in the past by citing:

“I want to take it to the next level. I’m dreaming big. I want to go to the highest of the highest. I want to be the Black Oprah.”

Of course, X users (better known as the former Black Twitter) wasted no time weighing in with their opinions, calling her remark an utter “reach.”


She countered in the sit-down,

“When I say the Black Oprah, I mean like… coming from the hood, Opa-locka, section eight, WIC, food stamps — like that — to having a podcast.  To being where I’m at. I never imagined this for me, so I feel like I gotta run, and I’m doing everything that I thought I wouldn’t do. So, I feel like the sky is the limit for me.”

‘Caresha Please’ made its debut on Diddy’s Revolt TV last year. It has since become one of the most-watched digital series of the urban culture.

The episodic production centers Miami and selected guests of the entertainment industry as she delves into their personal lives by asking off-the-wall questions that everyone wants to know the answers to.
