With insanely talented new artists being discovered on SoundCloud daily and major artists constantly dropping blockbuster music releases weekly, when a new artist stands out from the crowd the excitement you feel for their inevitable success is priceless. A rising rapper from the Bay named Saweetie is the latest artist that made me do a double replay when I heard her effortlessly chill freestyle “ICY GRL” which currently has 4.8 million views on YouTube. Hearing the gorgeous artist spit “Judging from my vibe you can feel it in my energy / Stacking paper steadily so I can live in luxury / Looking in the mirror I thank god what I’m about to be,” over the iconic Khia “My Neck, My Back” beat is a vibe you just have to hear to truly feel.
Saweetie just released a visual for her song “Focused” that’s equally as infectious as “ICY GRL”. With a Scarface introduction, head nod inducing production and the smoothest rap delivery, “Focus” has definitely got a lot of spins from me. I’ll be on the lookout for a full length project but I had to share the dope music and say I’m happy to see another dope woman killing it in the rap game and showing the world that multiple ladies can win at the same time while making the rap game more entertaining in the process.
What do you think of Saweetie’s latest musical offering? Let me know in the comments!
