During a recent appearance on the Caresha Please podcast, Latto opened up about her hectic schedule and the importance of maintaining a work-life balance. The 23-year-old rapper then saluted artists like Yung Miami and Cardi B for showing the world you can be a mother and still have a successful career.
It’s really starting to look like it’s Yung Miami’s new mission in life to make every single one of her rap peers as uncomfortable as possible on Caresha Please. Unlike a Nardwuar, though, hip-hop’s new favorite interviewer doesn’t surprise her guests with the depth of her research so much as she puts them in the hot seat with her blunt, no-holds-barred question style. Somehow, she doesn’t come across as invasively as The Breakfast Club, or combatively like Ebro, but she doesn’t softball questions like Sway or other mainstream interview shows.
Latto is giving rap moms their flowers. The rapper said she’s always had respect for mothers, as her own mom had her when she was just 15.
“I really salute you … I always use you and Cardi as an example,” she told host Miami (41:30). “Y’all give us a new meaning to ‘boss bitch.’ You know how they always try to make it seem like, ‘Oh, no. You can’t have a baby yet. It’s not possible. You’re gonna slow down. You’re gonna stop.’ Bitch, I swear to god, I’ll be like, ‘Miami didn’t stop. Cardi didn’t stop.’ I swear to god, I go to y’all every time. Y’all just re-wrote the story for us … That shit be motivation for somebody like me.”
