As more eyes appear on Bronx rapper DreamDoll, the more transparent she’s become about leaving negative energy behind. One person, in particular, is ex-boyfriend and fellow rapper YBN Almighty Jay who she labeled as a toxic person in her life.
In an interview with popular YouTube blogger BLovesLife, the rapper and former reality star confirmed she is no longer dating Jay for a number of reasons. “I just deserve better and I know my worth,” she said. “I know how I should be treated. I know men are not supposed to put their hands on women and…that’s just that.” The two dated for several months with Jay hinting towards engagement at the BET Awards in June.
After citing the relationship as “toxic,” the rapper labeled Jay as a distraction to her career. “I’m trying to focus on my music, and that’s basically what I’ve been doing,” she said. “I feel like when you’re in a relationship, especially being an artist, sometimes it kind of zones you out and you forget sometimes. You’ll put being with your boyfriend over your studio sessions, and then that’s when you start arguing with your manager, you’re canceling shows because of that. I was kind of like losing my focus a lot.”
Things seem to be looking up for DreamDoll. In addition to gracing a festival stage for the first time this year (Hard Summer), the rapper signed a major record label and is currently working on her new album. She recently gained new fans thanks to her verse on Hitmaka’s “Thot Box (Remix)” and freestyles on social media.
