Have you heard? There’s another newcomer on the block, a female rapper and she goes by the name DreamDoll, also known as Tabatha Robinson.
This reality star is known for being the “most hated” and baddest bad girl on Oxygen’s “Bad Girls Club” with all of her pink accessories, including her Jeep. Many despised her for how distasteful she acted on “Bad Girls Club” season 16, but after her apology on national television, people have been opening up to the new and improved DreamDoll. Her humor, charming personality, and New York flair makes her irresistibly appealing to the public.
Bronx, New York, born and raised, and starting off as a bartender in strip clubs, she is said to be a faux Cardi B, but she doesn’t let that stop her grind. DreamDoll is the first female artist to be signed to Dj Self’s record label, Gwinin Entertainment and is currently on VH1’s “Love and Hip Hop New York” Season 8.
Her first album, Life in Plastic, dropped this past September and arrived to an impressive number 28 on the Hip Hop iTunes chart. DreamDoll has been compared to rap icon Nicki Minaj because of their shared love for the color pink and their constant reference to themselves as Barbie dolls. Coincidentally, DreamDoll and Nicki Minaj’s ex boyfriend, rapper Safaree Samuel, are both on this season’s “Love and Hip Hop New York” and are now seeing each other. Maybe Safaree sees a young Nicki Minaj in her?
Not only is DreamDoll a pretty face, but she also has brains. She attended Westchester College and Herkimer Community College, graduating with a Business Management degree. Utilizing her Business Management degree, DreamDoll hosts events, models, and is where she is today in the television and music business because of it. At this rate, DreamDoll will only continue to prosper in her career.
Even though her persona can be compared to Cardi B and Nicki Minaj, her sound is definitely unique and fresh. Her signature roll when she speaks, her moaning adlibs, and her infamous slogan “Talk to me nice or don’t talk to me twice” is what makes DreamDoll stand out.
My personal favorites of hers are Brazy because of her incorporation of the 1996 R&B song, “Don’t Leave Me” by Blackstreet and her most popular track, Team Dream because of it’s hardcore flow. Talk to her nice or don’t talk to her twice because she is the next big thing coming out of the concrete jungle’s hip hop culture.
