EDITORS’ NOTES

Saweetie is a gotta-get-mine, boasting-and-roasting rapper in the tradition of Foxy Brown, Mia X, and Slick Rick. High Maintenance shows off her elegant personality and salty tongue. She raps with a deep voice, putting corny dudes in check (“B.A.N.”) and enjoying the finer things (“Agua”). Saweetie honors her Bay Area roots with regional slang and interpolating Too $hort’s “Shake That Monkey” on the title track. Then on “ICY GRL,” she turns Khia’s randy “My Neck, My Back” into a squad anthem.

About Saweetie

Inspired by similarly forthright rappers Lil' Kim, Trina, and Khia, as well as R&B artist Teedra Moses, Diamonté Harper broke through in 2018 under the alias Saweetie. Harper grew up in and around the Bay Area, primarily in the city of Hayward. Though she aspired to be a rapper in early childhood, she excelled academically, earned a full-ride college scholarship, and obtained a degree after attending San Diego State and the University of Southern California. Harper's interest in music subsequently intensified once she got some attention for short performance clips uploaded to Instagram. One set of nonchalantly celebratory rhymes, delivered over the instrumental of Khia's 2002 hit "My Neck, My Back," developed into a track entitled "Icy Grl." Its official video, uploaded in October 2017, was approaching ten million views by the time major-label Warner Bros. gave the track wider digital distribution the following January. ~ Andy Kellman
