Latto Praises Gangsta Boo & Teases Collab: ‘She Paved the Way for A Lot of Southern Female Rap’

Published: Saturday 19th Nov 2022 by Rashad

Self-proclaimed ‘Queen of da Souf’ Latto may be paving her own lane in the music realm thanks to big hits like ‘Big Energy’ and ‘It’s Givin,’ but she’s never shied away from givin’ props to the Rap Queens who came before her – especially those from the South.

Though historically noted for her reverence of Foxy Brown, Lil Kim, and Nicki Minaj (despite their recent fallout), Latto (born Alyssa Stephens) has gone on record praising Southern female Rap icon Trina – who also featured on the remix of the 23-year-old’s breakout hit ‘B*tch from da Souf’ – and also Memphis legends La Chat and Gangsta Boo.

The latter found herself the topic of Stephens’ conversation once more, this time during the ‘Wheelie‘ star’s recent pit stop in Vancouver as supporting act on the critically acclaimed, Lizzo-led ‘Special Tour.’

Look inside to see what she said.

Chatting it up with Nardwuar the Human Serviette while in Canada, Latto discussed a number of fun and surprising facts about her life and career.

As she is proudly an Atlanta native, the rapstress was quizzed on the impact female Southern rappers have had on her artistry – namely Gangsta Boo.

“Gangsta Boo is so Southern,” she started at the video’s 8:50 mark. “She gets overlooked. I don’t know why the f*ck they don’t give Gangsta Boo her props, you know she paved the way for a lot of Southern Rap. Shout out to La Chat too.”

After Nardwuar said ‘the boo is back,’ Latto ended her praise session by slyly emphasizing that she was recently in contact with the Memphis icon – an inference a number of commenters believe alluded to proof that the rappers may have something cooking.

And as Stephens is reportedly putting the finishing touches on the deluxe edition of her March-released sophomore album, ‘777,’ the timing definitely supports the fan theory as well.

Though it’s not been confirmed by either party if a collaboration is really in the works, their respective fan bases know the Rap divas are no strangers to exchanging pleasantries on Twitter.

Just this week (as seen above), Boo took to Twitter to celebrate Latto’s inaugural GRAMMY nominations (announced November 15).
