Yung Miami is determined to be the next “Black Oprah” and she doesn’t care who trolls her about it on social media.

“Caresha Please” has been a success on Revolt and Caresha Brownlee wants to capitalize being a media personality on the rise despite getting mocked for it. The jokes started after she claimed that she was on a journey to become the next “Black Oprah.”  She is doubling down in Tweets to remind everyone that she said what she said.

Yung Miami told XXL in a recent interview that she intends to build her legacy in the media game, after already scoring a number one podcast on Apple. That’s when she shared her plans to take over as the next “Black Oprah.”

XXL: First of all, congratulations on your new podcast, Caresha Please. You keep on grabbing headlines. What’s the story of how that came together behind the scenes?



Yung Miami: People just loving to hear me talk, you know? Whenever I talk or whenever I go on [Instagram] Live, it go viral. So, one day I was talking with Diddy and he was like, “Yeah, [you] should do a podcast. It would be good for you,” and that’s how it came out. It was just a conversation of me just always going viral off the way I talk and the engagement that I used to get off of Instagram Live. What’s a goal that you want to accomplish with this new podcast endeavor? I want to take it to the next level. I want to be like—I think she has a podcast now—a person like Wendy Williams. I’m dreaming big. I want to go to the highest of the highest. I want to be the Black Oprah. Sub out the world “next” for “Black” or “Hood Version” and it’s clear what Yung Miami was going for at the moment but that doesn’t matter in the vicious world of social media. And for your information, Yung Caresha is standing on her words.

Twitter Has Jokes On “Black Oprah” Comment

A plethora of Tweets poured in, criticizing the South Florida rapper for how she described seeing her future as the next “Black” version of someone who is already Black. But Caresha fired back, showing off her sense of humor:

I don’t like being basic like y’all h*es! My sh*t always got a twist to it!
