Saweetie joined Dana Cortez of the nationally syndicated The Dana Cortez Show in
Phoenix, at her flagship affiliate, Power 98.3, KKFR Radio, to discuss some of her all-time favorite things, including Rihanna. Diamonté Harper, aka Saweetie, has been touring cities across the country this year and is currently on her way to her hometown of Los Angeles for a show on Saturday. Performing with artists like Quavo, Migos, and Rich the Kid, she’s not slowing down. Here now, Sweetie goes “Five Deep” with Dana Cortez.
The West Coast rapper loves Sushi! She says she eats the Japanese staple at
least five times a week. But, she really wishes she had more friends that liked
sushi, too. Unfortunately, not many in her circle will go out and eat raw fish with
her. “You know black people don’t eat sushi,” Saweetie joked with Dana.
2. Tequila + Champagne
She’s also a big fan of combining tequila and champagne — an old habit from
her college days at USC. “It just really expedites the process,” she says.
3. Supportive Dudes
When asked “what’s really your type,” Saweetie responded, “People get jealous
— you need to find someone that really genuinely supports what you’re doing.”
While talking about her own relationship (Saweetie is dating Offset’s cousin and
bandmate Quavo), she says it’s helpful to be with someone else in the industry.
“We work all types of crazy hours…that’s a lot for someone to get into a
relationship with if that’s not what they know.”
If she could pick up the phone and work with anyone it would be Tupac. A true
West Coast girl, Saweetie boasts her family’s love of the late iconic rapper. She
often heard his music played around the house growing up, saying her parents
were true fans and that love was passed down to her. Saweetie hopes to one
day contribute to a song in Tupac’s archives.
5. Bring It On the Movie
Between Clueless and Bring It On, Saweetie would definitely choose Bring It On
for a girls’ night in. She loves the flick, which features her famous cousin
Gabrielle Union. Dana also got the dish on her other relatives in Hollywood: trap music producer Zaytoven and rapper MC Hammer. But with all that talent in the
family, Saweetie insists her main goal is to find success in the music industry on
her own. “I’m very prideful…I wanted to prove to myself I could make it on my
own,” she expressed.
