Saweetie is back in her bag and making major noise with the release of her latest EP ‘The Single Life.’ Speaking with our midday host Bryhana, the Bay Area rapper got candid for a conversation where she reveals a vulnerability that has been unlocked in her new music, which has allowed her to step into herself more as a developed and honest artist.
While Saweetie had a publicized relationship with Migos rapper Quavo, the femcee explains why she took the past year to focus on her craft and put all of her experiences, good and bad, into her music. “I feel like I got to know myself as an artist in a studio setting,” Saweetie shares as she describes her growth with music and even acknowledges the development she’s been undergoing that makes her feel like she’s a new artist on the scene again.
The “Don’t Say Nothing” rapper makes it clear that she doesn’t allow for any negativity in her life, but she also is not blind to much of the hate and sometimes backlash she may receive online, which also inspired her to take a step back and duck off of the internet for much of the past year.
Saweetie goes on to share the 2Pac inspiration for creating acronyms for her music, candidly speaks about her identity struggles growing up as a mixed child, and talks about her experience once being a Marathon Model for the late Nipsey Hussle.
