The Don has been active since 2015, when her viral debut song “Pilates” dropped. Since then, she’s shared two mixtapes, Thirst Trap and Black Kate Moss, and become celebrated for her old school flow and gritty sound.

“If I want him, I got him/I don’t gotta chase him,” she says confidently in one verse. “Didn’t save his number, so Imma erase him.”
