Miss Mulatto is the professional name adopted by American rapper Alyssa Michelle Stephens. The young girl came into the limelight after winning the inaugural edition of the Lifetime reality television show, The Rap Game. Known for her ingenuity, Mulatto has released several tracks that have been hits in the underground music scene. Her music, which encompasses Hip Hop and its subgenre of Trap that has gained popularity in the southern United States, has endeared a lot of young folks to her.
It is glaring to see that the music sensation is positioned to take the American music industry by storm with her rap songs in the coming years. Learn more about Miss Mulatto below as we share seven facts you probably didn’t know.
1. She is a Native of Ohio
Miss Mulatto was born on the 22nd of December 1998 in Ohio, U.S.A to Shayne and Misti Pitts Stephens. In addition to having her, Shayne and Mistri also have two other kids named Kay and Brooklyn Stephens.
But despite being born in the Buckeye state, a state that has produced a few other successful rappers like Machine Gun Kelly, Kid Cudi, and DaBaby to name a few, Mulatto spent her formative years in Clayton County, Atlanta. While there is no information available in regards to where she had received her elementary education, it is public knowledge that she attended Lovejoy High School in Hampton, Georgia.
2. The Rapper is Biracial
Miss Mulatto, or simply just Mulatto as she recently prefers to go by, is biracial as a result of the origins of her parents. From our findings, we discovered that her father is African-American while her mother is White. It is, however, not clear where exactly her mother originates from or which country her father’s ancestry can be traced to.
As a result of her being biracial, the rapper chose to use the rap name “Mulatto”, an offensive word used to describe people with one Black and one White parent.
3. Miss Mullato Dropped Out of School to Become a Full-Time Musician
It was reported that Miss Mulatto quit school sometime around 2012 in order to pursue her music career. The high school student had for so long harbored dreams of making it big as a musician after she had begun as a ten-year-old to rap and write her own music.
After a couple of years of trying to find her feet, Mulatto dropped her debut single titled ‘No More Talking’ in 2016. The following year, she released her maiden mixtape titled Latto Let Em know in which she collaborated with artists like Silento, Crucial, Lil Key and Molly Brazy.
4. The Rapper Has Not Done Any Cosmetic Procedures
Miss Mulatto is strikingly beautiful but does not quite have the body that is expected of a female rapper. In recent times, the most popular female rappers are known to have very curvaceous bodies that generate sex appeal. While there are numerous reports that indicate that these bodies are gotten surgically, it remains a fact that a huge chunk of their success is directly attributed to them being voluptuous.
With this, Mulatto who stands at a height of 5 feet 6 inches and weighs about 61 kg has some big decisions to make on whether she would start working out and follow a strict diet or go under the knife like a few others have done to gain fame and fortune.
5. Miss Mulatto is Worth Half a Million Dollars
Considering how much fame and popularity the music star has garnered since she decided to leave school and pursue a music career, Mulatto is believed to have earned quite a considerable amount of money so far. After much digging, we were able to learn that her net worth is around $500,000, a figure that is bound to definitely increase as she makes progress in the coming years.
6. She Has Turned Down Several Record Deals To Remain Independent
Miss Mulatto turned down a recording contract with So So Def Records after she emerged as the winner of The Rap Game. It was reported that she turned it down because the deal did not give her “enough money”.
Presently, the recipient of the 2016 Youth Hip Hop/R&B Award at Georgia Music Awards is signed to her own label, Pittstop Entertainment records and is further affiliated with Streamcut records. She appears to be doing quite well for herself in regards to her earnings although many have since argued that learning from a seasoned musician like So So Def-owner Jermaine Dupri would have proven to be invaluable to her career in the long run.
7. Miss Mulatto Has Collaborated With a Few Big Names
Mulatto has collaborated with a number of high profile musicians. In 2017, she got the chance to work with people like Future, 2 Chainz, Jacob Latimore, Bandit Gang Marco, and Janelle Monae, however, no music with these artists was ever released to the public.
In 2019, the rapper was featured by fellow upcoming female rapper Cuban Doll on the song ‘Who is You’. That same year, she joined the likes of Hitmaka, Chinese Kitty, Dream Doll, Dreezy, and Young M.A. to record the remix to the song, ‘Thot Box’.
