It Looks Like Mulatto Has Made Her Rap Name Change [Photos]

Mulatto is seemingly gearing up to unveil her new name: Latto. The Atlanta rapper hasn’t made any official announcements yet, but did tease a new single called “Latto” dropping at the end of this week. Her name also now appears as Latto on some streaming platforms, which fans noticed on Tuesday (May 18).

The Atlanta rapper spoke about changing her handle in December and January, as the moniker has negative historical connotations and is seen as an offensive term to describe people of mixed race. She went on to share during an interview with Hot Freestyle that she didn’t intend to offend anyone, and that after realizing she did, she began working to get things changed.

“You know, you might know your intentions, but these are strangers who don’t know you, never even met you in person,” she said at the time. “So you gotta hear each other out, and if you know those aren’t your intentions and that’s how it’s being perceived, it’s like why not make a change or alter it? For me, it was the name. So now I’m like, ‘OK, my intentions was to never glorify being mulatto.’”

She tweeted “LATTO SEASON” on Monday, possibly alluding to the change.

The artwork for her upcoming Friday single “The Biggest” only uses the name Latto, with no sign of her evidently now-former stage handle:

Just last month, Mulatto was featured in the high-flying music video for Chris Brown’s “Go Crazy” remix alongside Lil Durk and Future, who also delivered verses on the track.

Are y’all feeling the new name?
