The femcees are already shaping up to make 2024 another noteworthy year of rap releases.

If you thought the women of rap were leaving their petty drama behind in 2023, you're already being proven wrong thanks to the latest antics of Ice Spice and Latto. Amid the former's record breaking year, the latter has faced accusations of jacking her style and dropping shady bars. Though they haven't had any issues in person yet, all the subliminal shade has us wondering if 2024 will be when a confrontation between the New York and Atlanta based creatives ensues. For now, they're sticking to business as usual, with Latto making an interesting choice when previewing new music on social media.

Eagle-eyed internet users quickly noticed a familiar face in the background of the 777 hitmaker's new snippet. Though Spice wasn't there in real life, a clip of her "Pretty Girl" music video was playing on the TV behind Latto while she rhymed for the camera. "I just want a one-on-one, don't know why she so nervous," the blonde beauty spits, with many viewers speculating she's referring to her redhead contemporary.
