The Twitter Spark
Tensions may be rising with young female rappers Ice Spice and Latto. Fans have speculated for a while there may be bad blood between the two ever since Latto had an online feud with the crowned queen of rap, Nicki Minaj. Shortly after that spout, Ice Spice posted an Instagram video of a woman yelling about how she hates when younger women disrespect older women. Spice’s video on respecting your elders seemed like shade towards Latto, which seemingly ignited the beef.

Struggled to finish the lyrics
Shortly after this post, a video of Latto seemingly throwing shade quickly went viral. Latto was seen struggling to finish the lyrics to Ice Spice’s hit song “Bikini Bottom.” Fans quickly called Latto out for being petty.

Labeled a copycat?
Since her songs and… various other items that have leaked, Ice Spice has been trending like crazy lately. Every update on the Bronx rapper just pushes her name out further. In her EP she recently released, fans speculate that she had some lyrics that subliminally dissed Latto.
She claps back in her new music
After that EP, Latto dropped a freestyle that led many to think about whether her lyrics were aimed at Nicki and Spice.
Heard y’all wanted Freestyle Latto back… this my fav song right now 💨💨💨💨 PIC.TWITTER.COM/WAF8GO9JZH
