Rapper Latto was criticized for bringing Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams onstage during her concert on Oct. 22.
Abrams, 48, walked out onstage during Latto’s song “P*SSY,” which the rapper released after the Supreme Court overturned Roe vs. Wade.
Abrams held a sign that read: “My Body My Choice.”
Latto, 23, was criticized for mingling politics with her rap concert.
This is craazzzyyyyy ?smh
Please note: @Latto is NOT Black American so she definitely does NOT speak for or represent us in the Descendant Community.

Abrams was greeted warmly by the audience. She urged the youngsters to vote for her in the upcoming midterm elections next month.
“I’m not going to interrupt your fun,” Abrams said. “I just want to remind you if you believe ‘it’s my body, my choice,’ I need your vote! You gotta show up. This is our time. This is our choice and this is our year. I need your big energy! Let’s get it done!”
In other news, Latto denied being booked for FAMU’s Homecoming Concert this weekend.
The “Big Energy” rapper posted the concert flyer on her Instagram Stories and wrote: “I’m not booked for this looks fun tho lol sorry y’all!”
FAMU released a statement on Tuesday, Oct. 25, confirming Latto was booked to perform during homecoming on Saturday, Oct. 29.
In the press release, Zachary Bell and Makira Burns, of FAMU’s Student Government Association, wrote:
“On Sept. 14, 2022, WRLD Entertainment communicated that artists, City Girls and Latto, were officially booked for the 2022 FAMU Homecoming Concert and provided wire transfers reflecting so. Like you, we were extremely disappointed when on Monday, October 25 [sic], Latto announced she was not booked for the event; however, WRLD Entertainment denies Latto’s assertions. She has been booked for the event.”
Well, Latto doesn’t seem to think she was booked for the concert, so the matter will probably be settled in court.
