Coi Leray has been under fire since the release of her XXL Freshman Cypher alongside DDG, Lakeyah, and Morray. The “No More Parties” rapper delivered a lackluster freestyle and even proceeded to twerk as an alternative. Social media didn’t take kindly to her showing, which prompted multiple responses from Leray. “Bro coileray couldn’t rhyme anymore in her freestyle n started twerking,” a now-viral tweet read. “Nah coi leray imma need you to hire a freestyle coach and a ghost writer,” another tweet read.

Leray didn’t stop there as she dubbed her XXL Freshman Freestyle as the best in her class on her Instagram story. “You thought I was about to spit the hottest fire flame. Let me tell y’all something…I feel like, personally, I had the best “XXL” freestyle. Me and Lakeyah fa sho had the best “XXL” freestyle. Especially my whole class of the cyphers. I haven’t even heard the cyphers, other cyphers yet. And I know we had the best cypher. Especially me.”
In related news, the 24-year-old rapper is gearing up for the release of her debut album, which is set to drop in September. Guest appearances will include H.E.R., A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Nav, and more.
