It’s official. Mulatto has finally decided on a new stage name after months of scrutiny over her chosen moniker.
Given the racially charged nature of her name, critics across social media have urged Mulatto to consider changing her name since she broke out as one of the most talented and exciting young women in the rap game. She’s teased a new name in all of her recent interviews, telling HNHH that she would make a major spectacle out of the eventual announcement. As we wait for the release of her new single this week, which is tentatively titled “The Biggest,” Big Latto is introducing fans to her brand new name.
Officially making the change across most digital streaming platforms, Mulatto’s name has been switched to simply Latto. The change first appeared when she was featured on Toosii’s new album, being credited as Latto. Her handle on social media remains @mulatto but we can only assume that her team is working hard to lock down the @latto name.
The new single was previewed last week when the 22-year-old rapped over a Supah Mario beat from her car. She references the new name, saying, “New money, new crib, new whip, new name, I’m still that bitch.”
