Latto is giving back to her Georgia community. Last week, the Atlanta native and her newly launched Win Some Give Some nonprofit partnered with the Rainbow House in Clayton County, Georgia to hold its first ever “Latto 4 The Ladies & Babies Christmas Party” at the Virginia Burton Gray Recreation Center.
According to a press release; local teenagers, young mothers and their children were treated to meals, Christmas presents, Black Santa-branded merchandise, toys, Visa gift cards, filled stockings, free ice skating passes and more at the holiday event.
The 22-year-old said she launched the Win Some Give Some nonprofit “to empower at-risk young women by providing them resources and support to achieve a lifetime of success.” Rainbow House, which co-hosted the event, “is a private, non-profit corporation” with a mission “to provide comprehensive services that restore, heal and rebuild the lives of children and families,” the release added.
Latto’s most recent singles include “Soufside” and “Big Energy.” On Sunday (Dec. 19), she was also announced as the headliner for the upcoming “Monster Energy Outbreak Tour,” which kicks off in Santa Cruz, California on March 19. The trek will continue through Austin, Memphis, Detroit, Chicago and other cities before wrapping up in Atlanta on April 23.
“’Monster Energy Outbreak Tour‘ has backed a lot of big artists in the beginning stages of their careers, so I’m super excited to work together,” Latto said in a statement announcing the 2022 tour. “It’s been a tough year for a lot of people, so I’m looking forward to letting loose and having some fun.”
“Partnering with Latto on the ‘Monster Energy Outbreak Tour’ is an incredible way to launch into 2022,” Steve Glazer, the tour’s founder and producer, added. “In a short time, Latto has proven herself to be one of the most intriguing new female hip hop artists in the industry and is poised for massive success with the release of her sophomore album.”
As stated in the release, Latto is currently readying her sophomore album, which will follow 2020’s Queen of Da Souf.
