Latto is claiming that a male artist featured on her upcoming 777 album gave her a hard time on his verse being cleared because she wouldn’t sleep with him.
“You got let downs,” she in an interview with XXL (it’s at around the two minute mark). “Being a female rapper, I’m clearing my album right now. It’s been difficult to deal with these men. They don’t know how to keep it business.”
“I don’t care, baby. I’ma just keep it 100. It’s a feature on my album. It was difficult to clear and they tryna drop they nuts on me because I won’t respond to a DM,” the rapper explained.
The ATL native says that the song with the male artist’s feature is still on the album although the artist put her in a tough position.
“Just because I love the song so much and I had to turn it in yesterday,” she reasoned. “So, I didn’t really have a choice. So, I was like backed into a corner, like bullied. I wish more females would speak up on stuff. I know the label they say, ‘Don’t do that. Bad business, or whatever.’ Man, these folks be trying to drop nuts on female rappers. I’m not gon’ shut up about that.”
“We tolerate too much,” she added. “We think, like, oh, that just comes with the game of being a female rapper. No, it shouldn’t, though. That’s lame.”
Latto refused to name the artist in question and clarified that the rapper is not 21 Savage whom she dropped “Wheelie” with last Friday (March 18).
The “Big Energy” rhymer is currently headling The Outbreak Tour in promotion of her new album with Saucy Santana, Kali, and Asianae.
777 drops March 25.
Twitter couldn’t hold back the comments on whether she should name the artist who tried to make a move on the rapper. 777 drops Friday (March 25). See reactions below:
