Lil Tay Attacks Latto as 'Irrelevant' in Response to Perceived Diss
The 16-year-old internet sensation, fresh off her musical debut with the track "Sucker 4 Green," took aim at Latto, 24, following a screenshot circulating of the rapper's X account allegedly endorsing a tweet that threw shade at Tay.
The contentious tweet read, "Since Barbs wanna compare YouTube views. Let’s compare Spotify monthly listeners. Lil Tay-5.4k monthly listeners. Latto-34.6M monthly listeners. The math ain’t mathing🤣🤣🤣." User @Melatto23 explained that they posted this in response to Nicki Minaj fans who purportedly asserted that Lil Tay "is on Latto’s level."

A fan page dedicated to Lil Tay shared the screenshot, captioning it, “E list rapper ‘latto’ seemingly disses Lil Tay in recently liked tweet.” Tay herself chimed in, stating, “@Latto my ONLY song came out 2 days ago and it outdebuted all of ur recent releases ur irrelevant stop coming for me. Who the f*ck even is Latto??? 🥱.”
Tay's reference appears to center on the YouTube success of their respective singles. As of this publication, Latto's "Issa Party" music video, which dropped on Friday (Sept. 29), has garnered just under 385,000 views. In contrast, Tay’s “Sucker 4 Green," released the following day, has soared to an impressive 2.7 million views.
