Whitney Alford is mixed race; she has a Black father and a biracial mother

Whitney Alford was born in May 1986 in Compton, California. Though the identity of her parents is unclear, we know that she was born to a Black father and a biracial mother, which makes her mixed race. 

Alford’s race became a hot topic of discussion during Lamar’s feud with Drake. Some fans took issue with Lamar for calling out Drake’s blackness, given that he has a mixed race partner. Drake has a black father and a white mother.
