Atlanta rapper Mulatto a.k.a. Big Latto is letting the world know she’s still staying busy even if the new music rollout is slower than usual. The hip-hop star has come forward to update fans on her well-being and promise big things are on deck.
Big Latto Explains Her Disappearance
Latto hit up her Twitter page to provide some context behind the lack of putting out new music and heavily clocking in social media time. In an effort to lessen concerns, the Georgia artist promised she’s gearing up to unload some perfectly crafted material.
“I been laying low perfecting my craft this year so when I start this rollout I hope b*tches ready”
A few hours ago, Latto hit up her social media pages to share some looks at herself performing at this past weekend’s Made In America concert in Philadelphia.
Latto Explains Name Change On Instagram
Earlier this year, Latto came up with a creative way to formally announce her name change. She posted a video of a mock Google search on her IG to spell things out for anyone who wasn’t clear on the details of her big move.
“Latto: Short for the Lottery. Completely separate from Mulatto, represents a new chapter, good fortune, spiritually & financially.”
Fire Freestyle From Latto
A few months ago, the rising rap star was going crazy. Latto released a must-hear freestyle and showed everybody the bars she’s capable of spitting. She dropped her own remix of SpotemGottem’s viral hit “Beatbox,” delivering 90 seconds of heat and going off with her flow over the beat.
“I’ve been killing features / I’m on everything like hot sauce / So don’t act like I ain’t been that bi*ch since I popped off / Told you he don’t eat, but to this pu*sy he gon’ beat box / This shit just too motherfu**in’ easy.”
No Music Until…..
During a January 2021 interview, Latto revealed what major change she’d be making to her career and how it would impact her new music rollout. She said she won’t drop her next album until a new name had been chosen.
“You know you might know your intentions, but these are strangers who don’t know you, never even met you in person. 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.’ So if that’s how it’s being perceived and people think I’m saying, ‘Oh, I’m better because I’m Mulatto’ or ‘My personality trait is Mulatto’ … then I need to change the matter at hand. I need to be able to speak on it and people hear me out. I want them to also understand that the name change at this level in your career is a big decision. Freaking investors, labels, everything has been riding on this name, so it is a big decision.”
