This release points to the potential of new music from the rapper.
Atlanta rapper Mulatto has dropped a new music video for her single “Rich Sex.”
The visual which follows a Western bank robbery theme features Mulatto daydreaming that she’s stealing from the bank that she’s currently waiting in line at. Throughout the music video, she is surrounded by other customers who are then transformed into accomplices who are in on her scheme. The bank teller also plays a role in her robbery.
Though she’s been rapping since she was 10, Mulatto emerged as a female rapper to watch after winning Jermaine Dupri and Lifetime’s show The Rap Game in 2016. Her biggest single to date is “B*tch From Da Souf.” A remix to this song arrived on her June 2019 EP Big Latto featuring Trina and Saweetie. The remix has raked in over 7 million streams from Spotify alone. Back In November, she appeared on Louisiana rapper Boosie Badazz’s song “Nasty Nasty,” it later received a visual of its own.
Big Latto arrived with production by OG Parker, Bankroll Got It and Bankhead. The project reintroduced Mulatto as a female rapper that consistently drops music with strong, sex-positive lyrics. Staple songs on this release include her intro track “Latto,” “No Panties,” “Rich Sex” and “See Sum.” Each of these tracks features the artist rapping about sex, money and juggling the men she’s dealing with.
The perspective she offers in her music is also coming from three of her buzzy peers Megan Thee Stallion and City Girls. Each of these acts hails from the South. This points to an obvious resurgence in hip-hop music from this region.
