Cleveland emo rapper Blossom Reynolds has recently covered the Puddle Of Mudd classic, “She Hates Me.”
Reynolds says that he originally got the idea to cover the song while driving around one day. Immediately, the rapper took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the song.

However, when a friend challenged him to sample the song, Reynolds started to kick it in gear. The emo rapper then thought sampling the song just wasn’t enough. Instead, he decided to make an entire cover.
You won’t sample it though…

“I originally was going to have a friend just sample the guitar and make a completely different song with it, but listening to it again, I never noticed how inherently emo the song really is,” Reynolds says. “I mean ‘She hates me, I tried too hard and she tore my feelings like I had none’ is pretty sad. I was already in talks with sorrow bringer from Ukraine about collabing on a song, then I heard this beat while I had the “She Hates Me” lyrics on my mind and it all just came together.”
