Like a pan of burnt brownies tossed in the trash, gone are the days of Kreayshawn collaborations and White Girl Mob drama, clearing the smoke for the Bay Area baker Lil Debbie to pursue her solo career. Between Riff Raff duets and colorful music videos on singles like "Bake a Cake," "Slot Machine," and "Ratchets," Lil Debbie has proven she's more than just a party persona, but a cake baking, gambling, and drug-taking fashionista and lifestyle influencer. She added fitness guru to the list most recently after releasing "Work the Middle," the lead single off her upcoming EP California Sweetheart Pt. 2, which is slated for release on August 5th. The single itself has a much spicier hook than typical LD tracks and an all around fuller sound. If it's any indication of the rest of her new shit, it's gonna be so hot you'll need an oven mitt.
