Mulatto was born Alyssa Michelle Stephens in 1998 and grew up on the south side of Atlanta, Georgia where she started rapping at age ten. Identifying as biracial, with a black father and white mother, she first adopted the stage name Miss Mulatto. Prior to appearing on TV, Stephens developed a strong local following by performing at various events, opening for other artists and via her activity on social networks. In 2016, at age 16, Stephens joined the cast of the Queen Latifah and Jermaine Dupri-produced Lifetime reality TV rap show The Rap Game. After an eight-week boot camp-style competition in which she competed against four other aspiring rappers, Miss Mulatto was crowned winner of The Rap Game. Following her win, she signed a recording contract with Dupri's So So Def Recordings and released the single "No More Talking." Before 2016 was up, the rapper released an eight-song, self-titled project. Shortly afterwards, she shortened her stage name to Mulatto and began work on new material. In 2017 her style grew bolder and more self-assured on the Latto Let 'Em Know mixtape, a longer release that featured guest spots from Bandit Gang Marco, Lil Key, and Molly Brazzy. The next year she returned with a self-titled ten-song mixtape. In 2019, the rapper released a pair of EPs, with Big Latto appearing first. The EP included the single "B*tch from Da Souf," which became the rapper's biggest song to date. As a single, the song was streamed millions of times. In November of 2019 she returned with another EP, the sexually charged Hit the Latto. ~ Matt Collar
