She continues, “Sharin’ ni**as, sharin’ clothes, I don’t know what y’all be on/ Y’all go for shit I wouldn’t, I’m up three-hundred a booking/ Bi**h, I don’t play for the Nets, but I’m gon’ shoot sh*t up ’bout Brooklyn/ Every time I’m cookin’/ He know I put my foot in/ Leave yo’ bi**h, get wit’ a boss, she can’t give you nothin’ but pu**y.”

“Big Mama” follows Latto’s “Sunday Service Remix,” which featured Flo Milli and Megan Thee Stallion. The remix included several shots directed at Ice Spice, with Latto interpolating her ad-libs.
