Doja Cat recently spoke out after being dissed by Nas on his new single “Ultra Black.” The veteran MC dropped the new single featuring Hit-Boy over the weekend.

Nas honors his Blackness on the celebratory track, while also referencing Doja Cat’s controversial past in chat rooms where the biracial singer-rapper was accused of being “racist.”

“We going Ultra Black / Unapologetically Black / The opposite of Doja Cat,” Nas raps on “Ultra Black.” The “Say So” artist responded to being dissed by Nas by taking to TikTok and sharing a video of herself listening to the track, while sarcastically taking offense to Nas’ lyrics.

“I’m so offended and upset by this song,” Doja Cat said before asking her viewers, “Have you guys heard ‘Fruit Salad’ by The Wiggles?” Doja Cat also wrote, “Craaazy tune” in her caption before deleting the post.

As we previously reported, Doja Cat came under fire for comments that she allegedly made in chatrooms online, which many of the singer’s fans deemed “racist.” In 2015, the “Freak” singer recorded a song called  “Dindu Nuffin,” a racist slur mocking victims of police brutality.

The Los Angeles native later apologized for the offensive record. “That’s not my character and I’m determined to show that to everybody moving forward,” Doja Cat wrote on Instagram.
