Latto and Cardi B have voiced their concerns about the treatment of female rappers in the music industry. They shed light on the existing double standards and the disproportionate amount of disrespect faced by female artists. In an interview with NME, Latto, an Atlanta-based rapper, echoes Cardi’s sentiments, emphasizing the disparities that persist in the industry.
Cardi B and Latto both assert that female rappers encounter higher expectations when it comes to their presentation. They are often required to incorporate dancers and go the extra mile to compete on an equal playing field with their male counterparts. In contrast, male rappers can simply wear a plain white tee and perform repetitive moves on stage. This discrepancy places an unfair burden on female artists, who have to work harder to attain success.
Latto emphasizes that success for female artists is not achieved overnight. Despite facing intense scrutiny and analysis, female rappers must persistently strive for recognition and accomplishments. The arduous path to success in the music industry requires dedication, perseverance, and a willingness to overcome obstacles.
