Everyone seems to be asking the same question: Who was Latto referring to in her recent sit-down?
During an interview with Big Boy TV, Latto dished on her upcoming sophomore album, 777. In the 47-minute interview, the rapper began speaking on an unexpected roadblock she encountered while trying to clear a feature with a male artist, as Blavity previously reported.
“I’m clearing my album right now, and it’s been, like, difficult to deal with these men. They don’t know how to keep it business,” she said. “It’s a feature on my album that it was difficult to clear, and they like trying to drop their nuts on me because I won’t respond to a DM.”
“Man, these folks be trying to drop nuts on female rappers, like I’m not gonna shut up about it,” Latto continued. “We tolerate too much. We think, ‘Oh, well, that just comes with the game [of] being a female rapper.’ Well, it shouldn’t, though. It shouldn’t.”
She added that, while she was “rubbed the wrong way,” she still loved the song and “didn’t want to not put it on my album.” Latto also said she felt as though she “had no choice” but to keep the track.

People immediately began buzzing and accusing Kodak Black of being the prime suspect—especially since he recently made comments about how female artists like DreamDoll and Yung Miami should “let [him] smash ’cause the music is trash,” as Blavity previously reported.

Then, yesterday, Latto unveiled her highly anticipated tracklist, including its upcoming features. The list consists of 21 Savage, Lil Wayne, Childish Gambino, Lil Durk, Nardo Wick, and Kodak Black. There’s also one more feature on the bonus track that’s still being kept under wraps.
With Kodak Black being listed, Twitter users immediately began buzzing and amping up the criticism against him.

Despite this, people were largely un-swayed in their opinions.
Kodak is acting like he doesn’t have a whole rape charge out here. Yes, lol, we thought and still think Latto was talking about you.

However, it’s worth noting that Kodak Black wasn’t the only suspect in the case, as some shared that they had their eyes on Nardo Wick.

Why everybody think it was Yak that Latto was talking about and not Nardo Wick? He seem like the type of weirdo to do that (Kodak too but ijs lol)

Lil Durk also found his name thrown into the mix.
Looked at Latto track list and I see everybody saying Kodak Black etc but y’all know who I believe it was????? DURK!!! I believe it was mf “newly engaged” Durk because that’s literally how the game goes with dudes like that. Watch!!!

Lil Wayne was also not free from suspicion.
Yunno how awkward it’s gonna be when we find out it’s not Kodak but Lil Wayne?

Am i the only one that doesn’t think Latto is talking about Kodak, but is instead talking about Wayne

People also continued to dissect the situation on a grand-scale basis, though Kodak Black and Nardo Wick were consistently at the top of the list.
Ok so if it’s not Kodak, not Durk,highly doubt it’s Wayne or Gambino.. I think it’s Nardo oppose to 21 https://t.co/59MjxcDNob

I’m thinking it was Kodak Black ugly ass and idk who this Nardo Wick dude is…. Lil Durk has worked with other female artist so maybe he okay still unsure…Wayne like white women just like Gambino so I don’t think it’s them https://t.co/RxNVpT7V7p

Aside from Kodak Black, none of the other artists have publicly commented on the matter.
