Rapper Mulatto Officially Changes Her Controversial Rap Name to “Latto”

Mulatto’s long-awaited name change seems to be official, as her latest, somewhat less controversial stage name is now reflected on Apple Music and Spotify.

Although many fans wanted her to adopt the rap name “Big Latto,” she opted for a more drastic change, changing her rap name to simply “Latto.” She also appears to be working on new music to mark the occasion.

This will be the rapper’s second time changing her rap name. Back when she appeared on Lifetime’s The Rap Game, she dropped the name “Miss Mulatto.”

Unfortunately, because of the historical connotations of the word “Mulatto,” her rise to fame over the past year has been met with increased scrutiny and criticism, which she has discussed at many points during the year, including in an exclusive interview with Uproxx, where she said: “It’s not about me comparing my ‘struggles of being mixed’ to any other skin tone, any other race, anything like that. It’s just simply me explaining my story. I did experience a different type of upbringing, having two completely different cultures. One side of my family cooked this way, talked this way, celebrate this way, traditions is this way, and then one of the sides is different, and as a kid, I was just confused, and kind of had to find my way in my identity. It’s just about an experience and flipping that negative into something positive.”
