Saweetie On Refusing Help From Famous Family: “I Want To Figure It Out On My Own”

Published: Wednesday 26th Aug 2020 by Sam

Saweetie has been building a solid fanbase thanks to bops such as ‘My Type’ and latest effort ‘Tap In.’

And she’s making it clear that the music will be her primary vehicle to the top — not her famous connections.

Folk may not know, but the femcee is the cousin of actress of Gabrielle Union and has other industry ties.

In a new interview, she opens up about her belief in being “self made” and carving out her own path.

Her words below…

Speaking with Deus & Mero, the rapper explained:

“They were all kind of upset at me ‘cus they heard ‘My Type’ and was like, ‘We didn’t know you was doing music. What you doing over there?’

But me, I have so much pride. I believe in being self-made and trying to figure things out on my own. I appreciated that they reached out and was like, ‘We see what you’re doing… our friends keep talking about you. We see you and if you need our help, please let us know.’ So I appreciate the support, but for me, like, I’ve always been self-motivated. So, instead of asking for help, I just wanted to see if I could do it on my own.”

Check out the full interview, in which she also talks sampling, album ‘Pretty B*tch Music,’ her relationship with Quavo, and more.

    I hate this shìt

    Gurl whether u like to admit it or not , u are privileged.
    U being related to gabrielle union has helped u get ur foot thru many doors.

    Ur come up is not organic

    Same with janet , Solange,
    Talented girls but their connections helped them get their foot thru the door.

      You put Janet in the same sentence as Saweetie??? Janet had to earn her stripes and was a break out star on her own right, if that was the case where is Rebbie, Jermaine, Latoya and the other siblings careers?? Janet made it a point to be in her own lane hence she is the blueprint for many performers today, she been performing since she was 6 years old, lets not do that … o_O As for Solange, she also had to find her OWN lane and became an artist in her own right…

      Yes they may know people but it doesn’t make them a star, that’s not how it works lol

        Janet did earn her strips, same with solange cause they are both talented women.

        But u cant deny it that her family name and connections didnt help her when she started out.
        Her name and connections helped her in one form or the other and she may not have known it.

        Its privilege. It’s the same thing with actors who come from rich homes or have a director father or a Hollywoodproducer mother.
        Their wealth and connections helped them get thru the door . They may be talented but their wealth helped them at one point or the other.

        Unlike someone like Rihanna who was an immigrant, poor etc. Started from the bottom. Had to migrate to america from an island country

        Even Camila cabello. An immigrant, poor. Migrated from Cuba. Parents illegal citizens etc. Started from xfactor and rose to the top. .

    • Pat August 26, 2020

      Camila was out on by hit Group and still flopping so what’s your point

      • Clarks0o0ñ August 26, 2020

        Everybody see , this is mental illness on display.

        Ur ugly dumb and retarded at the same time.
        Isnt your mother dying of cancer? Worry about that honey

    • Kashdollqueen August 26, 2020

      Ok? And? Everyday people have connections to get them through the door all the time. It is what it is. I don’t know why people feel so guilty about it. Saweetie is trash anyway. Kash Doll is the true queen.

    • SNF August 26, 2020

      So what? You couldve kept this…

    Sorry but I just don’t see it for this girl. Her songs are all samples, she has terrible flow, just nothing special….she can’t even dance. And while she’s attractive, she’s not as gorgeous as people say. She looks like a regular pretty woman, but nothing about her screams “Star” or “x factor”. I just…don’t see it. Sorry

    Edit: I will not be replying to any comments under my comment. Get a life

    • Holliewuudd August 26, 2020

      Na she actually is gorgeous AF. But I agree with the rest

    • Clarks0o0ñ August 26, 2020

      “And while she’s attractive, she’s not as gorgeous as people say. She looks like a regular pretty woman, but nothing about her screams “Star” or “x factor”. I just…don’t see it. Sorry”

      The way you described normani chile 💀💀

      Onlyflops what’s good? The way I dragged u so mich u fell into depression and u changed ur name entirely. Lol . My power.

    • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭 August 26, 2020

      Are u talking about flopmani???? Zero star power. Only flop is being dragged! 😂🤣😂🤣 just die b-I-t-c-h. U just an attention seeking w-h-o-r/e. No one likes u in here.

  3. Pat August 26, 2020

    Connections only mean so much really. Most of the industry gets on thru a connect they made at the end of the day. Either u have it or u don’t

  4. Clayne August 26, 2020

    I like her a lot. She samples songs but that’s her “gimmick” for now… what’s wrong w sampling throwbacks and giving light to songs that came before? That’s showing respect for other artists and shows her artistry bc she makes it a COMPLETELY different song.

    She’s gorgeous, has good visuals and love how she sounds. I’m a lowkey Stan I think lol.

    I’m rooting for her.

    • Shayla Queen 👑 August 26, 2020

      Agree with all of this

  5. Big Birkin Beisha August 26, 2020

    This girl is a flop with no it factor. Trash af

    • Shayla Queen 👑 August 26, 2020

      Like your unemployed father

    Going to Gabrielle Union for help would be like calling the R*pe Hotline and Harvey Weinstein answers.

    Union would probably sue her for using her bathroom.
