The rising Dallas MC selects rap tracks that inspire her rapid-fire flow and Technicolor vibe, from Lil Uzi Vert to Nicki Minaj.

In the wake of Nicki Minaj’s afrofuturist Barbie Doll aesthetic, a wave of young “doll” rappers has come up, all sharing a predilection for the diminutive rapper’s taste in neon wigs, provocative outfits and no-holds-barred lyrical content. Asian Doll, from Dallas, Texas, manages to distinguish herself from the rest of the doll house with a furious flow and filthy lyrics guaranteed to make even the hardest rapper blush. For her episode of Headphone Highlights, she gives us a glimpse of the songs that soundtrack her life: Going to bed and waking up with Lil Uzi Vert, vibing out in the Sprinter van with Gunna and embracing the insight and influence of Nicki Minaj.
