Latto has clapped back at a fan who accused her of copying Ice Spice, adding that she’s sick of people misinterpreting her tweets.

The accusations were made after Latto posted a photo on Instagram of her striking a similar pose to that of Spice on the cover of the latter’s Like..? EP, with one fan writing: “YOUUUU posted this… so YOU’RE creating the narrative!”

Latto responded to the fan in question, writing: “Every time y’all accuse me of copying folks ima clear it up. Nun mo nun less.”

She added in a separate tweet: “I don’t like how y’all take my tweets & make them fit ur weak ass narratives.”

The tweets come after there had been reported friction between the two rappers. During a red carpet event in January, Latto was caught off guard when a journalist from Billboard asked her to complete the lyrics to Ice Spice’s viral hit “Bikini Bottom.” Latto appeared lost and needed help finishing the rhymes almost immediately.
Fans found it odd that Latto wouldn’t know the lyrics to “Bikini Bottom” because of how active she is on TikTok, and theorized that the “Big Energy” rapper could be throwing shade at Ice Spice.

The potential tension comes shortly after Nicki Minaj deemed Ice Spice to be the Princess Of Rap. Latto notably feuded with the Pinkprint rapper on Twitter last year and have yet to reconcile, at least publicly.

The pair had exchanged words on Twitter after Nicki scolded the 2023 Grammy Awards for placing her “Super Freaky Girl” single in the category of Best Pop Solo Performance rather than in any rap category.

“I have no prob being moved out the RAP category as long as we r ALL being treated FAIRLY, If [‘Super Freaky Girl’] has [2 billion views] moved out RAP then so does Big Energy,” the Queen rapper tweeted, referring to Latto’s Billboard-topping single.
“ANY1 who says diff is simply a Nicki hater or a troll. I’d actually LUV 2 c a more street record win- male OR female! IJS rightIsRight.”

Latto ultimately responded by tweeting: “Damn I can’t win for losing… all these awards/noms I can’t even celebrate,” which led to the two taking lengthy, very personal shots at each other.
Despite these problems, Latto recently said she doesn’t charge up-and-coming female rappers for features.

“My No. 1 thing has been being a girl’s girl,” she told Billboard. “I utilize my power in uplifting others on my way up. When you see Latto do a feature with an upcoming female rapper, I don’t charge them. The label got to cover the glam, but I don’t profit off that.”

As for Ice Spice, she was recently shouted out by NLE Choppa, who called the Bronx-bred rapper “beautiful.”

“Ice Spice beautiful, man,” Choppa said in an interview with The Jason Lee Show, adding that Ice Spice’s popularity was partially due to her being “marketable.” Lee then asked if Choppa ever slid into Spice’s DM’s.

“I don’t text her no more,” he said. “She changed her number so I like from a distance. She do a lot of big things.”
