The rapper shut down her Instagram account after trolls expressed their disapproval over her win. She, however, let the haters know that she worked hard to win before closing the account.

Slept in the studio on leather sofas for 3 months straight, migraines, in Atlanta in Miami away from my family. I have 4 songs that couldn’t make the album cause my nose was so stuffy bro I was huffy puffy …
