On Tuesday, 21 year-old rising Atlanta rapper Mulatto released her explosive female-empowered “Bitch From Da Souf (Remix)” video featuring Saweetie and Trina. The rapper also signed with RCA records. The video premiered on Complex, BET JAMS and BET Hip Hop.
The video was directed by Sara Lacombe and shot in Los Angeles and Atlanta. The video has Mulatto teaming up with LA’s Saweetie and Miami’s Trina, showing what it takes to be “that bitch” from any region. From Frisco’s Carhop Diner in LA, to a strip club in ATL, the three rappers flex their witty lyrics with a delivery and presence that is unmatched.
The night before Mulatto announced through social media that she was signing with RCA. In regards to the decision she said, “The buzz that ‘Bitch From Da Souf’ created put so many offers on the table for me all at once. I was in New York and LA having meetings back to back. RCA stood out off rip. The meeting didn’t feel like a meeting at all. Everybody from the interns to the CEO [Peter Edge] himself were there to meet me when I got there. We popped bottles, played new music, and really just talked shit on a Friday night way after the office was already closed. Signing was especially a big deal for me being that I came from a TV show where I publicly turned down a record deal. For 5 years I worked independently waiting for the right opportunity to present itself. I knew in my heart that it was time and felt 100% confident in choosing RCA.”
RCA Records Chairman & CEO, Peter Edge states, “We’re excited to have Mulatto join the RCA family. She is a bright, talented young star who has already made incredible strides in her career. She is rapidly becoming a frontrunner amongst her peers and we’re looking forward to being a part of that process.”
