Mulatto Hints At Name Change After Backlash
Even before she really blew up, Mulatto has been criticized for her choice in rap name. The history behind the term “mulatto” dating back to American slavery doesn’t sit well with a lot of people. In a new Q&A, the 21-year-old rap artist says it’s been on her mind.
“I can’t say too much because we’re working on something right now, but I would be lying to say it hasn’t crossed my mind before. It is a controversy that I hear and see every day as far as my name goes, so I would be lying to say no I never thought of that. But I can’t say too much because right now, it’s going to be a part of something bigger.” (HipHopDX)
Social media has since reacted to Latto considering a rap alias change.
Mulatto is changing her name to Big Latto which is alot better than the slavery era term used to describe the offspring of a slave master and his rape victim
