Rapper WBD invites all haters to hate on Hate Me, her latest EP. The Salvi spitfire makes sure they've got their work cut out for them. The Weekly first introduced the rhymer last year as OC's newest hip-hop outlaw when she relocated to Anaheim from LA. She came to town back then with her Words of the Wicked mixtape. WBD returns with Hate Me, a collection riding a hybrid sound of underground and Chicano Rap allowing for WBD to spin her stories of survival. The anguish is evident in her vocal inflections on the tone-setting opener "Heaven or Hell." Produced by Toks the Blue Loko, guest features on Hate Me are stocked with fellow femcees including impressive lyrical assists by Top Dime and D'Duchess.
