To be sure, Lil Debbie, whose real name is Jordan Capozzi, had already staked out her ground in white-girl-rap territory. She'd teamed up with Kreayshawn in 2011 on "Gucci Gucci" as part of the backing duo White Girl Mob along with V-Nasty. That gig didn't last long, though, as Kreayshawn booted Lil Debbie out of the group the next year.
That opened the door to a solo career, and Lil Debbie went through it. She cranked out singles such as "Squirt" with RiFF RaFF and "Gotta Ball" with V-Nasty. After that, came a deluge of mixtapes and EPs, including 2013's Queen D, 2014's California Sweetheart Parts 1 and 2 and 2015's Home Grown. The full-length album Debbie dropped in 2016.
It's been a busy few years for Lil Debbie, as she's established herself as something much more than background scenery. During that same period, Miley Cyrus' twerk-and-rap act has been curiously quiet. Maybe that means that she's retreated from the real estate that belonged to Lil Debbie and her crew all along.
