“I think it really don’t be a problem until we let fans, Stans, whatever you want to call them, like the outsiders once they get in the mix. I think that’s what stirs the pot,” Latto said. “Because it’s like, we will all be fans of each other and commenting and following each other, whatever, but then once they get to comparing, they will turn us against each other, which is very weak-minded of us as female rappers.”

She added, “I think we be falling for these traps that they put on female rappers.”


To close out the month, Latto will create a all-women cypher.

Latto is officially a part of the fastest single to hit a billion streams in Spotify history. Latto joined Jung Kook on the “Seven” single earlier this year, which racked up a billion plays faster than any song ever. It only took just over three months.
