Latto is responding to the recent comment she made about how a male artist on her album (due out Friday March 25) tried to exchange sex for permission to use his verse.
After Latto released the tracklist, fans zeroed in on who the male artist she could be talking about was. Fans signified the culprit must be Kodak Black because of his recent comments about how “all of the signed female artists needed to sleep with him for a spot,” per HotNewHipHop.
Kodak cleared his name on Twitter: “That Mulatto Girl IS NOT Talkin Bout Me Homie I See Y’all Steady Reachin Lol,” the ‘Super Gremlin’ rapper wrote. “Shawty Ain’t Even Say A N—- Name On Dat S— Ion Know Why Tf Y’all Tryna Make A N—- Wear Dat Jacket I’m Too Fly Fa Dat S— Homie.”
Latto went to defend herself saying it wasn’t her goal to point fingers but wanted to speak out about how women rappers are treated in the industry.
“My intention was not to make this a whole thing,” said Latto per the outlet. “I just was looking at it as, like, I’m a new female rapper in the game, I wish somebody could have given me some insight about how this stuff really goes. You hear female rappers have it harder but I really wanted to give a little insight as to what specifically makes it harder for female rappers. I didn’t want it to distract from the music or anything so I kind of wish, in a way, I didn’t say that.”
When asked how the male artist in question reacted to the story getting out Latto revealed that she hasn’t spoken to him.
“I haven’t heard from them,” she said. “I’m not here to raise nobody… I’m just speaking on what I go through and I think I’m allowed to do that to a certain extent. Social media is trying to turn it into this thing where it’s like, oh, I’m trying to clout-chase or [they’re trying to] silence my experiences. It’s hard to know when you should and shouldn’t speak up.”
