Saweetie made a bold claim about the state of hip hop recently while chatting with Bootleg Kev in LA. According to the Northern Cali native, women are running hip hop these days because fans are tired of the "violence and disrespect" that permeates the music of male artists.
“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,” said Saweetie. “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..."
She added, “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.”
