Miami rapper, Jacki O, is in the middle of a comeback so she is back on her mixtape grind. In an effort to raise publicity for her new mixtape, she chose a title which would turn heads. Jacki O named her latest mixtape after female crime boss, Griselda Blanco.
When she revealed the title of the mixtape, many hip hop outlets hinted towards a possible feud. These possibilites heightened when Jacki O received a call from the Godmother's son. But, the call was nonconfrontational according to Jacki O.
Blanco's son, Michael Corleone Blanco gave Jacki O the family blessing to use his mother's name. He offered to collaborate with her to portray her in a light that the media never did. Michael Blanco told Jacki O that his mother was big on family.
More than anything, he was honored that she chose to honor his mother. The only problem he had was the cover Jacki O chose to use. Jacki O said she will use what she learned about Ms. Blanco to help repair her image from the grave. This is not by any means an attempt from Jacki O to imitate Griselda Blanco, but she can relate to her being a female in a male-dominated field.
