Saweetie did what a lot of street performers in Los Angeles do … take center stage on a makeshift platform and ask for donations – but it seems that was just one way to plug in her new song.
The rapper – who has just come out of a very public break with Quavo –was at the Santa Monica Pier on Friday … where she put on an impromptu performance for everyone nearby. She did at least a few songs … “My Type” and her new single, “Fast (Motion)”.
Saweetie didn’t hesitate to do that either, BTW … she posted a video of herself performing, and her caption is very cheeky – “the rent was dueee 🤷🏽♀️ streetie in the street catch me next time luhhh y ‘all 🤣🤣🤣 #fastmotion. ”At first glance it seems like it was all intentional.
You can tell she was joking … because she had a little donation basket at the base of her feet that said “Pretty Bitch Summer Donations”. So yeah, a little viral marketing.
Of course some people saw this and didn’t get the gag … taking punches against Sawettie while making Quavo the clear “winner” their split. People are also playing on the false rumor that Quavo had repo’d a Bentley he gifted her … saying things have deteriorated for her since they went their separate ways. But, as we told you, this new Bentley was BS.
Keep in mind that Saweetie is a professional and signed artist … and doesn’t seem to be strapped for cash at all. Her music is exploding, she’s appeared in commercials lately, just dropped a new line of sunglasses … and she’s starting to step into TV roles too.
In other words, she’s doing great – so if you’re not into the joke, welcome.
