In the realm of rap, fans often find themselves pitting female artists against each other, but many women in the industry prefer to support and stand in solidarity with one another. While facing sexism from both the music industry and its audience, female rappers strive to uplift each other. Latto, in a recent interview with Cosmopolitan, shed light on the various forms of support she receives.
Latto disclosed, “I constantly receive messages in my DMs,” and shared that rapper friends like Cardi B and Yung Miami encourage her to ignore trolls, invite her to events such as birthday parties and album release parties. She particularly emphasized the guidance she receives from Cardi, who advises her to remain focused and not let anyone deter her from her path, drawing from her own experiences.
Unfortunately, despite this supportive outlook, some fans insist on speculating about potential conflicts between Latto and other rappers. This speculation intensified when Latto called out Nicki Minaj, accusing her of being a bully who hinders the success of other women. Although Latto referenced Coi Leray in her song “Put It On Da Floor,” some fans erroneously assumed there was a physical altercation between them, even after the misunderstanding was resolved. Moreover, fans frequently compare Latto to Ice Spice, who recently collaborated with Nicki.
Latto, formerly known as Mulatto, is a rising star in the rap industry known for her empowering lyrics and confident stage presence. Born on December 22, 1998, in Ohio, Latto gained recognition as the winner of the reality show “The Rap Game” in 2016. She went on to release successful singles such as “B*tch From Da Souf” and “Muwop.” With her fierce personality and commitment to addressing societal issues, Latto is a force to be reckoned with, embodying the unity and support among female rappers against sexism in the music industry.
