Latto Shares Her Top Female Rappers

The rapper recently sat down for an exclusive interview with Atlanta’s Hot 107.9 radio station, which was released on Tuesday, April 2, via YouTube. The interview appeared to be in anticipation of the rapper headlining Atlanta’s upcoming Birthday Bash concert.

To note, Latto will be the first female rapper to ever headline the event, per The Source.

About two minutes into the six-minute interview, the rapper was asked to share her top three G.O.A.T. (Greatest Of All Time) female rappers.

“Kim — gotta say Kim,” Latto began, referring to Brooklyn-bred rapper Lil’ Kim. “Imma say Left Eye — rest in peace, Left Eye and shawty.”

Social Media Speculates She Referred To Nicki Minaj

Social media users entered The Shade Room’s comment section to react to Latto’s list. Many shared their confusion about her mentioning someone as “Shawty.”

Instagram user @kingsilvy wrote, Wait …. Shawty??”

While Instagram user @mocurlsss added, Lord I thought shawty meant shawty lo and I got real confused 🥹🥹”

Instagram user @shanceys wrote,nobody: me on google searching ‘shawty female rapper’ 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭”

However, some explained that they believed she was referring to Nicki Minaj.

Instagram user @iammalikalrahim wrote, Shawty = Nicki Minaj. Of course she’s not going to say her name, but she has always gave Nicki her flowers way before the beef. Latto is a real one for that.”

While Instagram user @jaylen.dupree added, “‘Shawty’ is Nicki. She ain’t gotta say her name tf. It took a certain level of maturity to even still give credit after everything. Some of yall don’t even got that part down.”

Instagram user @shantoria__ wrote, I respect her being real and still giving Nicki(shawty)😂 her props💯”

While Instagram user @jcockerhamofficial added, ‘Shawty’ is definitely Nicki yall if you not from the south it went right over your head 😂”

Instagram user @brittanycity wrote, Love Latto for this actually, too many ppl would let their pride keep them from even saying that”

While Instagram user @mikeb_soxtraa added, It’s clear she still likes Nicki. Nothing wrong with that. Hopefully they talk one day without social media….”

Instagram user @heisolivertwixt wrote,I really feel like Nicki and Latto can be fixed.”

On April 9, Latto seemingly reacted to her own words with a brief tweet on X, formerly known as Twitter.

A Brief Recap Of The Viral Exchange Between The Rappers

As The Shade Room previously reported, Latto and Nicki Minaj’s relationship took a turn in October 2022. At the time, Latto had been nominated for a Grammy for Best Melodic Rap Performance with her hit single, ‘Big Energy.’

Minaj seemingly took offense to the Grammy Board’s nomination. At the time, the GRAMMY board considered her recently released single, ‘Super Freaky Girl,’ pop rather than rap.

“If ‘Super Freaky Girl’ is pop, then so is ‘Big Energy,’” Nicki told fans on Instagram Live. “If you move ‘Super Freaky Girl’ out of rap and put it in pop, do the same thing with ‘Big Energy.’ Same producers on both songs, by the way… Let’s keep s**t fair. Even when I’m rapping on a pop track, I still out rap.”

Shortly after Minaj shared her sentiments, Latto took to X to seemingly share that she couldn’t celebrate her nomination.

In response, Minaj blasted Latto for being “silent” rather than speaking out for her to the Grammy board.

Ultimately, the pair exchanged heated words.
