Alabama rapper Chika is hardly known to bite her tongue, as she once got a lot of attention for saying that male rappers don't get criticized as harshly as female rappers. She's also gotten credit for her lyrical skills and being nominated for Best New Artist at the Grammys this year.

But the 2020 XXL Freshman said she's retiring after getting a lot of online hate.  Last month Chika was accused of shading Selena Gomez and the pop singer's fans still haven't let up on her.

 

“Today, I shared that I was thinking of retiring because the mental toll being in the industry has taken on me is not something you bounce back from easily,” wrote Chika. “I’ve told my team, I’ve told my therapist, I’ve told friends and acquaintances. Today I told Twitter. What followed was a hoard of psychotic fans rejoicing in the decline of my mental health, harassing me as if I spoke to them first.”

Cardi B, who knows a little something about online hate, responded to Chika's message and sent her some positive words.

 



 

"Take it as this, Is the devil trying you or God testing your faith?" wrote Cardi in part. "I have won and accomplished so much and yet people try to strip everything I work hard for yet I have to think to myself do I quit & let people laugh for me being weak or get them mad by winning ... You barely in the press,barely in blogs ,barely in magazines but guess what ? You was nominated for a Grammy for YOUR TALENT! Trust me people are watching and people are rooting for you.Block it out,work on ur marketing and keep going ! IT TAKES ONE SONG That will change ur life."

What do you think about Chika retiring and Cardi telling her not to?
