Saweetie Recalls Tough Conversation She Had With Her Parents About Her Childhood: ‘Lots Of Apologies’

Saweetie’s style and relatable personality have made her one of the most popular female rappers out right now. While she has used her social media to help cultivate her brand, she also gives her fans a glimpse at fun moments with her family and friends. From getting glammed up with her mom, who is a former model, to attending NBA games with her father, who female fans have been pining over, Saweetie seems to keep her family around often. However, she recently revealed that wasn’t always the case.


The Grammy award-winning artist appeared on Kevin Hart’s Peacock show Hart to Heart where she opened up about her childhood and shared that she actually became close to her parents last year. “I was that kid in third or fourth grade. I had a key to my house and I would walk home, I would do my homework, clean the dishes, I would make my food,” she said. “I had been independent for a really long time.”

The “Icy Chain” rapper said that her parents worked a lot when she was a child and other family members would often take care of her. “My mom had me when she was 17,” she explained. “My dad was young too. They was just always hustling and working.”

She added, “They would always tell me we’re a team. In order for us to win, you have to do your part. So, my part was behaving, being responsible. I was like a little woman.”

The 29-year-old star admitted that she was constantly yearning for her parents when she was a child and when she got older, she finally disclosed her feelings about her childhood to them.

“I had this conversation with mom around the time that “Icy Girl” came out (in 2017) and then I had this conversation with my dad last year on my birthday,” she revealed.

In her conversation with her mom, she learned a lot about her mom’s life story which explained why she was so hard on the USC grad growing up. After having conversations with both parents, Saweetie said they apologized.

“Lots of apologies from them. They apologized for my childhood.” She concluded, “It meant a lot to me.”

EXCLUSIVE: Keke Palmer Launches 'Heaux & Tell' On KeyTV

Recently, we heard that Keke "Keep a Job" Palmer launched her digital network KeyTV. Today, xoNecole has the exclusive first look at the first series on KeyTV, Heaux & Tell.

Written and created by Nakia Stephens and executive produced and developed by Keke, "Heaux and Tell follows the misadventures of three best friends who dive headfirst into provocative and ridiculous new experiences. A 7-episode scripted show featuring a BIPOC cast of talent and behind-the-scenes creators who helped bring it to life, the series offers this generation a real take on sex, sexuality, and sisterhood."


"KeyTV is about bringing new perspectives to the table and platforming creators who have something to say," Keke tells xoNecole of why she chose Heaux & Tell. "Overall, I want the network to deliver content that is relatable to our generation with characters you feel like you know, and Heaux & Tell, our first scripted series, delivers on that and more. The series takes the audience on a wild & seriously unexpected ride through the eyes of three Black women and best friends who don't always have it together in their relationships, at work, or even with each other but are doing the best they can. It's a show that I'd watch with my friends because it's about real characters dealing with their problems, their wins, and their lovers in real-time – and having some real good messy fun along the way."
