At a recent concert, Latto warned fans to stop throwing things at him on stage and threatened to “smash his face in.”
The Clay County rapper has toured Europe, performing at numerous festivals across the continent, and last week appeared at the inaugural edition of Rolling Loud Germany in Munich.
While performing the internet hit “Put It On Da Floor”, fans threw something at him. Undaunted, he continued his choreography and warned fans not to do it again: “I’m going to break your face,” he warned, “Throw it again. I’m going to break your face . Throw it again. .”
In recent months there has been a strange increase in artists struck by unusual objects or gifts. Lil Nas X asked “who threw their pussy on stage?” after a fan threw a sex toy at a fan in Stockholm, and P!nk was thrown a wheel of brie cheese, as well as someone’s mother’s ashes during their BST Hyde Park concert.
Many artists have also been hit by phones: including Steve Lacy, who broke a phone thrown at him, and Bebe Rexha, who was hit by someone, which left her covered with a black eye.
Adele is one of the stars who asked fans to stop throwing things at artists. “Have you noticed that people are forgetting show etiquette, throwing shit on stage? Have you seen it?” he asked during one of his recent concerts in Las Vegas.
“Challenge me you throw something at me and I will kill you,” he said. “Stop throwing things at the artist!”
Earlier this month, Latto performed at London’s Wireless Festival. In a three-star review, NME said Latto’s performance on the Amazon +44 stage was “a five-star performance worthy of the headliner.”
Last month, the Georgia rapper teamed up with Bronx superstar Cardi B for a remix of her hit track ‘Put It On Da Floor,’ aptly titled ‘Put It On Da Floor Again.’
