AceShowbiz - Rising rapper Saweetie has no problem rejecting lucrative offers in order to maintain her morals and integrity.
The "Tap In" hitmaker recalls a time when she was given the chance to make some big money, but it required her to "violate" her values, and she was unwilling to compromise them.
She shared, "When you are a young woman in L.A., sometimes you're put in situations that can help you financially but will take a jab at your soul, your body."
"I remember basically just having the opportunity to get some money, but in doing so I would have violated my morals and my values. I was broke but I was like, I will never do anything to disrespect myself... no matter how desperate I get."
Saweetie stopped short of sharing specifics about the situation, but told Teen Vogue, "That's a story within itself, but I think it was a moment where I was like, 'It's OK. You'll eventually get what you want out of life as long as you're praying and working hard.' "
"I just got a new place. I feel refreshed. I feel like it’s a new chapter. I just want to be a good person and help people while being a pretty a** b***h [sic]," she smiled.
Elsewhere in the interview, Saweetie recalled the time she got in trouble with the law. "Before I went to college, I almost went to jail because I got caught stealing," she spilled. "At a young age, I just always liked the finer things - and I'm not even talking about name brands. I just like looking good."
