For the latest entry in our Conversations With interview series, HYPEBEAST linked up with Saweetie who talks about adjusting to fame, the new era of women in hip-hop, being a foodie and being underestimated.

Since breaking out in 2017 with her viral video for “ICY GRL” and “High Maintenance,” The Bay Area native has steadily made a name for herself because of hard work and a number of singles that have grown her following. Most recently, things have paid off as she makes her Billboard Hot 100 with her hit single “My Type,” which is currently at No. 47 and climbing. For Saweetie, consistency is her weapon to achieve success.

“Sports is like music, automatically when I’m coming out to try out, they are like ‘What she going to do?’ and I feel like that’s how it is for music,” she explained to HYPEBEAST. “I’ve been through that, I feel like its a constant just trying to prove yourself. But I got a bomb team and I feel like as long as I’m consistent with continuing to rap my raps, I’m going to be straight.”

Most recently, Saweetie dropped ICY in March, seven-song EP that features Quavo and is led by her hit single “My Type.” The project also features production credits from the likes of Murda Beatz and NOVA Wav.
