Is the "Cash Me Ousside" girl struggling to stay relevant?
In a story that broke this morning, Danielle Bregoli (of 'Cash me ousside' fame) seemingly had her Instagram feed hacked by rapper Mook Boy, who used it to premiere his track "Juvy."
If you're not familiar with Bregoli, her fifteen minutes of fame happened in January, when a video of her saying "Cash me ousside, howbow dah" on Dr. Phil went viral and became a meme. Bregoli embraced her meme-fame, leveraging it into a clothing line, another appearance on Dr. Phil, and 7.5 million Instagram followers. Orlando-based rapper Mook Boy wanted to use her fans to boost his own profile, and seemingly hacked her Insta to post his track "Juvy."
Give "Juvy" a listen here:
The video, which premiered exclusively on WorldStarHipHop, features Bregoli lip-synching along to the track, and is not remarkable at all (like the track, which feels like contrived, stereotypical hip-hop). It's nowhere near as hot as the remix of "Cash Me Ousside." While the people who made the video are calling it a "top secret art experiment," Refinery29 (who were first to report the Insta hack and later corrected themselves, saying that the whole thing was a PR stunt), "wouldn't call the video 'art,'" and we agree. When your meme-schemes to "hit the viral button" on your music video are exposed, what can you do?
On a side note, Bregoli's fifteen minutes ended in early February after her second appearance on Dr. Phil. Is the Cash Me Ousside girl struggling to maintain a relevance she should no longer have?

Happy birthday to the world's biggest genre
On this day in 1973, Clive Campbell, the Jamaican-American "selector" known as DJ Kool Herc, hosted a "back to school jam" at 1520 Sedgewick Avenue in the Boogie Down Bronx of New York City.
Armed with a booming sound system and reggae beats, Herc– a shortened nickname for "Hercules"– commanded insatiable audiences across the South Bronx with his unique looping technique called the "Merry-Go Round." "[I knew that] they were waiting for this particular break," Herc later said, "and I got a couple of records that got the same break up in it. I wonder how it would be if I put them all together."

Raymond's popularity sheds light on a bizarre underside of the Animal Crossing fandom.
Raymond is a smug cat who highlights his heterochromatic eyes with hipster glasses.
He is essentially the same exact character as every other Animal Crossing villager with a "Smug" personality type, but again, and this is very important, Raymond is a cat with heterochromatic eyes and hipster glasses. As such, he has completely broken the Animal Crossing community.
