*Webbies, get into it and fall face first into Social Heat. Latto spoke to XXL in-depth and discussed the challenges female emcees face in the industry, “I think we be under this microscope. We’re heavily analyzed by blogs, fans, and commentators. We gotta go like, 10 times as hard as men do for just equal recognition. For instance, everybody knows about my situation [of me] trying to clear the verse on my album. We just go through a lot more on the back end that people don’t know about.” The “Put It On Da Floor” also addressed hip-hop beef, “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. 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. I will take that accountability. I don’t think truly, at heart, it’s us. Once people are infiltrating your mind and got you thinking this, and now you feel this type of way without even addressing the person, now you addressing fans. I think we be falling for these traps that they put on female rappers.”

Coco Jones and Reneé Rapp did a duet singing SWV‘s “Weak.” We saw someone post on X, “It’s like when the turkey and yams touch,” Ah, stop it! We enjoyed the swirly harmonies. However, Reneé, watch yourself. We’re not feeling the first few lines of your “Tummy Hurts Remix.” Don’t make Jesus have to run up on you 12 deep and snatch back that talent He gave you, ok?! (Mutters under breath rapid fire: Over here getting beside themselves disrespecting our Lord and Savior because they got lil funky recording contract, *hisses teeth). Anywho (pops gum), Webbies, are you catching a vibe with their rendition?

Fantasia is applying that presha during the press run for “The Color Purple” Check out her lewks.

Webbies, it’s almost that time for the “Beans Greens Potatoes Tomatoes / Lamb Rams Hogs Maws / Beans Greens Potatoes Tomatoes / Chicken Turkeys Rabbit / YOU NAME IT!” What are you most looking forward to partaking in this holiday season?
