Mulatto has been making a lot of noise in hip-hop as one of its biggest new artists this year for sure. She recently sat down with HotNewHipHop.com to discuss the music scene in Atlanta and gave herself her praise for the work she’s put in 2020 as well as fellow Atlanta native, Lil Baby.
She labeled Baby as the “frontrunner” for males in hip-hop in the city and gave herself that title when it comes to the female rappers there.
Mulatto Feels That She And Lil Baby Are Dominating Atlanta Now
“I feel like he’s the frontrunner for the males of Atlanta, and I feel like I’m the frontrunner for the females,” Mulatto explained.
“Like Atlanta, male rap and female rap, I think that collab was needed for Atlanta culture. (Regarding their “Sex Lies” collab. )”But off set and stuff, even in the studio, he’s real cool and humble, real humble dude.”
Mulatto’s ‘Sex Lies’ Single With Lil Baby Was Released This Month
Earlier this month, Mulatto‘s “Sex Lies” single feat. Lil Baby appeared on the extended version for her debut studio album, “Queen Of Da Souf.” Five tracks in total were included on this version and this one was easily the fan-favorite on social media.
As of now, it has also accumulated almost 5 million views on YouTube. The original debut album was released in August and was headlined by the singles “B*tch From Da Souf” remix feat. Saweetie and Trina and “Muwop” feat. Gucci Mane.
Lil Baby Is Nominated For Two GRAMMYs Next Month
Lil Baby‘s 2020 has been huge and it has resulted in two Grammy nominations next month. The categories he is part of are Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance. This is for his “The Bigger Picture” single he released in the summer. This was to address the social injustices happening in America such as racism and police brutality. Many did wonder how his “My Turn” album didn’t receive any nominations as it was a No.1 project and had a myriad of hit records on it as well.
Mulatto’s Change To Stage Name Could Possibly Come In 2021
Despite Mulatto being a star right now, many still don’t like the fact that she still has her stage name. This is due to biracial people viewing it as offensive. She went on to reveal to The Shade Room that a change to the name is in the works but it isn’t happening right away.
“It’s still in the works, like, people gotta understand too that, at this level in an artist’s career that’s not just something that happens overnight. Or, it’s not something that even happens period because it’s so much money and investments on the line when you do that…but it’s definitely in the works, like, I’m considering it for sure.”
