“I needed to push myself,” Latto stated of “Massive Vitality” as an Uproxx cover star final December. “I needed to problem myself. Truthfully, if you’ve been rapping since eight years previous, you bought to seek out new inspiration and new sparks. I simply needed to attempt one thing completely different and I didn’t actually give a f*ck whether or not folks preferred it or they didn’t as a result of this was for me. I do know what I’m doing. So I used to be like, the go-hard Latto, heavy punchlines on a heavy 808 trapped out beat, that’s my pocket. I bought that down pat. I can try this endlessly. I try this in my sleep. However, I don’t wish to try this endlessly. I wish to push myself and I wish to be the largest me I could be.”
