Hate her or love her, Saweetie – the self-proclaimed ‘Queen of Content’ – lives up to the title in more ways than one.
When not blazing the promo trail via Web and TV talk shows to support her singles, the rapstress is found playing covergirl to a number of digital and print magazines.
The latest to feature the ‘Best Friend’ beauty (born Diamonté Harper) on her promotional onslaught are ‘Complex’ and ‘Wonderland’ magazines – both of which quizzed the 27-year-old on her long-awaited debut album, long-term career goals, and so much more.
Look inside to see what she said and catch a glimpse of the fierce photo shoots that accompanied each feature.
Before she took to ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ to crank out a live rendition of her latest single, ‘Fast Motion,’ and announce the June 25 arrival of its parent project (her debut album ‘Pretty B*tch Music’), Harper hit the pages of ‘Wonderland’ and ‘Complex’ to dish on the effort and her overall career so far.
See highlights of each feature below.
SAWEETIE ON HER CAREER:
“I know I’m setting myself up to be a mogul that supersedes my artistry and trickles down to the generations of kids and grandkids to come…I think the way me and my team are positioning myself means we’re gonna be good for a long, long time.”
SAWEETIE ON THE POPULARITY OF FEMALE RAP:
“It’s exciting! I feel like the competition is healthy, and I think it is important to have it. [The female rap scene] is growing because of social media. We’ve proved that we don’t need to co-sign. We’ve proved that we don’t need gatekeepers to say if our music is hot or not because we’ve proved that we are able to curate our own fan bases who [remain] supportive on a good day or a bad day – without the gatekeepers’ approval.”
