It’s easy to be skeptical of a 21-year-old rapper born in Ohio who goes by Mulatto. It’s even easier to be skeptical of a rapper whose first claim to fame comes from winning The Rap Game, a reality series on Lifetime. But, surprisingly enough, Lifetime recognizes game, of which Mulatto has plenty. She takes the tropes of Southern bounce and infuses them with Atlanta strip club swag, landing somewhere between City Girls and Rico Nasty. “Bitch From da Souf” features a beat from Bankroll Got It and a video populated by blue hair, a blue Porsche, and Dolce shoes. Mulatto’s musical ability is top notch, but the way she carries herself is almost as important. She exudes confidence. The description for “Bitch From da Souf’s” video on YouTube is simple: “Its over for ya'll rap hoes... 2019 is mine!” She’s right. —Will Schube
