Ebro Denies Shading Saweetie For Saying His Criticism of Her Rap Skills Gave Her PTSD

Published: Tuesday 23rd Mar 2021 by Rashad

‘Best Friend’ beauty Saweetie has long felt she hasn’t had a friend in one of music’s top DJs – Ebro Darden.

The longtime host of Hot 97’s ‘Ebro in the Morning’ made the rising rapstress go viral in 2018 when he referred to her on-air freestyle as “basic” – an occurence she recently told ‘Cosmopolitan’ gave her PTSD.

“It was a really dark point in my life,” Saweetie said in the mag’s April 2021 edition. “I went from being so loved so quickly because of ‘Icy Girl’ to, on my first promo run, well, you saw the interview. The script flipped really quick, like night and day. I had PTSD from that.”

As hoopla around her recount of that incident began to heat up, Darden just so happened to go on Twitter rant about the state of music.

Look inside to see what he said:

Taking to Twitter Tuesday (March 23), Ebro relayed:


Fans and supporters of Saweetie immediately assumed Ebro was referring to her, with some even suggesting his comments were sexist.  He quickly attempted to clarify.



When the dust settled, Darden suggested the timing of his rant was coincidental.



At writing, Saweetie has not commented on Ebro’s statements.

    Girl bye. That’s not PTSD just pure embarrassment.

    That freestyle was trash
    She doesnt know how to rap which is not a bad thing, look at cardi for example, she cant rap but she has the number one song in the country right now

      Cardi is raw and likeable. She also makes consistently good music. Saweetie tries too hard. She’s no star just a pretty face.

    • WRTW? March 23, 2021

      That’s true Cardi has many indiscriminate talents but rapping isn’t one and look how far payola and sympathy got her. Hopefully the same will work for Saweetie because the talent she doesn’t have.

    Saweetie is one of the best female rappers out right now. Her High Maintenance EP still bangs 💯

    How did this girl end up in female rap conversations?!

    I thought the joke would end. She cannot rap. She makes Cardi B seem like a Lauryn Hill. That’s how bad she is.

    What kind of s*** is this? If you’re a rapper, you have to have a thick skin!!! All the weakasses need to go somewhere else with that soft s***! Plus Ebro was right about her!
