Meanwhile, Kodak Black called for a boycott of BET after Latto beat him in the Song of the Year category during this year’s BET Hip-Hop Awards. The Florida rapper voiced his disappointment on social media after Latto won for her track ‘Big Energy’ at the ceremony, beating his track ‘Super Gremlin’.
“This whole shit looked like a damn plot,” he said during an Instagram Live (via allhiphop.com). He also mockingly called the singer a ‘Frappucino’.
“They probably hollerin’ at BET, like don’t give him that shit,” he said. “I told [people] weeks ago. Watch they finna play with me and give it to Frappuccino.”
In a series of social media posts, Kodak Black complained about “woman empowerment shit”, adding “Don’t jus simply give it to somebody kuz they a woman”. He also called on everyone to “boycott” BET, adding “y’all not really for the people”.
Latto appeared unphased by the rapper’s comments, posting a photo of herself to Instagram with the caption ‘Frappucino” in response.
