In a tweet, Coi Leray wrote: “Latto bye . 😴 here you go taking about my body. Please do not come on here and talk about nobody BODY. Lol like seriously . Out of all things . Lmaooo ya blunt my size ? Lmaooo this shit is never ending.”

The recent feud between Latto and Coi Leray has brought attention to the gendered expectations within the hip-hop industry. Female rappers are often expected to conform to masculine roles, including engaging in rap beefs. In response to the controversy, Leray emphasized that she doesn't know these female rappers personally and urged them to refrain from directing negativity towards her. This highlights the need for greater recognition and respect for female artists and their individual creative expressions, rather than enforcing gendered expectations on their behavior.

In a recent tweet, she wrote: “If you don't like me , support me or fwm don't mention my name. Period. Sh*t don't make sense. I don't know none of you b*tches in real life. Stay in y'all lane and leave me outta the bullsh*t. I be minding my business and showing real love offline.”

While artists like Coi Leray and Lizzo have been targeted by body shaming, they have also received a tremendous amount of support from fans and fellow artists, who have praised them for their talent and unique voices.

Leray has recently taken to social media to announce that she will be releasing a song titled “My Body” on April 28th, which she wrote in response to the criticism she has received regarding her physical appearance. In a recent Instagram post, the rapper shared a snippet of the upcoming single and captioned it, “Everybody wants to talk about my body, so I made a song about my body.” The release of this song is a powerful statement from the rising star, demonstrating that she is unapologetically embracing her beautiful body and taking control of her narrative.

As the conversation around these issues continues to evolve, it is clear that female rappers like Coi Leray are leading the charge for change and progress in the industry. Their messages of positivity and self-confidence are resonating with fans, and inspiring others to stand up and speak out against the harmful narratives that have long plagued the rap industry.

Leray has been forthcoming about her feelings towards Latto's lyrics, but so far Latto has remained silent on the matter. It remains to be seen if and when she will address the controversy
