Mulatto, who now goes by the name ‘Latto’ was signed by RCA Records in 2020 after winning Season 1 of ‘The Rap Game’. Since being signed, @Latto777 has become quite famous for using other people’s songs and recreating already established music. Such as her debut song ‘Big Energy’ which she recreated Mariah Carey’s hit song ‘Fantasy’ from back in 1995. And ‘Tear The Club Up’ which was originally made by Triple 6 Mafia back in 1995 as well. It seems to be a perpetual strategy that has worked to her advantage for her music career.
But most recently, Latto seems tto have 1 focus. Making diss tracks. Latto has made a collection of targeted disses in the form of music lately where she is constantly insinuating someone has 100 bodies, has no hit songs, body odor, and are “ran thru”. Now, people are wondering who is Latto constantly dissing in her music!? Well, If youre a fan of rap and hip-hop, like me , then chances are you know exactly who she’s after in her music.
Here’s some rap facts. In 2022 The Rap Artist who goes by the name @therealhotpink released ‘Gingerbread Man’. Let me give you a quick background on Hotpink before we dive into more detail. Hotpink is an underground rapper from Atlanta, Georgia who was an urban legend in Atlanta even before she began her music career. According to her website ( www.therealhotpink.com ) Hotpink, was the youngest female hustler in the city of Atlanta, leaving the porch at the tender age of 13 where is “worked the streets”, before becoming a legendary “trap star” by the age 15.
Now, back to the beef.. In Hotpink’s song ‘Gingerbread Man’, that was released in 2022 the rapper says “I got a hunnit bands I don’t f** wit you, so don’t f** with me”. In 2023 Rapper Latto featured on Lola Brooke ‘Don’t Play Wit It’ replied “100 bands? WTF is 100 bands! You f*** like 100 n**** and ain’t got 1 man. And ain’t got 1 hit”.. Due to Latto verse being quite off topic to the song she was featured on, we got to see how dedicated Latto was to her rap beef ( the imaginary smoke) . @Latto777 then goes on to make 2 more songs. The first titled ‘Put It On The Floor’, the other, ‘Put It On The Floor Again ft Cardi B’, to ensure her voice was heard and her message was clear and her beef was real, by making a part 2 diss track!!. In the song ‘Put It On The Floor’, and ‘Put It On The Floor Again ft Cardi B’ , Latto (whose real name is Alyssa Michelle Stephens) uses the Rapper known as Hotpink, signature adlib in the background while she (Latto) says “And I heard about your pus**, bi***. Armpits like your pus** and it’s giving fish”. She uses Hotpink “HOT” adlib in the background of those specific insults, directly targeting Hotpink and in the exact same song which Latto also uses music lyrics from HotPink’s song titled ‘Give A Damn’ in order to further mock her in her dedicated beef with the artist.
While most artist have been inspired by HotPink, apparently Latto has made herself a personal rap beef. On songs ‘Put It On The Floor’, and song ‘Put It On The Floor Again’, Latto can be heard rapping the lyrics “I dun dun it all, I feel like Shawty Lo. Laughing to the bank” repeatedly throughout the hook on both songs. Almost identical to HotPink’s “Give A Damn” song where she says “I dun dun it all, I’m Shawty Lo.” And “ I’m laughing hearty hard. Straight to the bank.” With all the diss tracks Latto has been putting out, it doesn’t take a genius to know exactly who she’s been beefing with. But is this a real beef or a one-sided animosity? In a recent interview, Hotpink said and I quote “I was unaware of the imaginary beef Latto had with me. It’s kinda weird.”
The Rap Artist @TheRealHotPink has been affiliated in the music industry for over 15 years. She’s created numerous songs that have inspired many famous artists throughout those years. She’s also the creator the “Drip” trend with her brand “Her Juice” that has become viral across the world through social media. Just recently in 2023, the rapper was interviewed by SHOUT Radio about artists who she’s inspired, and who has used her lyrics in a positive way. The full interview can be found on YouTube.
