The BET Awards is known for fostering some of the biggest moments in Hip-Hop and Pop culture. Latto was no exception to the rule.

The “Muwop” rapstress had her well-deserved moment during the 2022 BET Awards as she performed her summer-geared hits “It’s Givin'” and “Big Energy.” Wearing an all-black and gold embellished jumpsuit, the 24-year-old gave a paramount performance that can be considered one of her best to date.

If Latto’s “Big Energy” wasn’t enough, she surprised the audience with a guest appearance from Wu-Tang Clan’s Old Dirty Bastard’s son, Young Dirty Bastard, and thee Mariah Carey herself. The two sang original verses from the 1995 “Fantasy,” leaving the entire room standing on their feet. Latto ended her performance by literally giving Ms. Carey her flowers.
