Saweetie was a recent guest on the Bootleg Kev Podcast, and she gave her take on the current state of rap music.
In her opinion, women are running rap at the moment and she explained why. Saweetie also seemed to reference the murders of PnB Rock and Takeoff in her interview.
“I mean, L.A. and other cities, it just goes to show that this is the reason why women is running rap and Hip Hop,” she said. “Because there’s just so much violence and disrespect in the male music. You gotta think, like, remember, what was it, like ’16/’17, remember when like YG, Tyga, Chris [Brown], Big Sean, TeeFlii was out? It was fun, party music ... It wasn’t like, ‘I’ma do this to you, and this, and this,’ you know? I feel like we gotta raise the vibration with the music and get back to having a good time. [I feel like there’s definitely a lack of] empathy and love, for real.”
