SWEETIE G LIVE WEDS NITE - GO LIVE TV TaKeOva!!!
“No matter what they slang at me until the death there ain’t no changing me, ‘cause still I remain!” No one quote from one song sums up the attitude that Sweetie G has towards music more than the chorus from one of her very first tracks titled “Still I Remain”. She grew up on the east side of Pittsburgh in an urban neighborhood called Homewood. Surrounded by drugs, violence, and sex, she used music as an escape and to cope with everyday life in the ’hood’. At the tender age of eight she began writing lyrics and penned her very first song in the 6th grade! Even then her lyrics exuded self confidence and determination to be successful. The song’s final line couldn’t express that better. “You used to listen to Bow Wow but you’re buying from me now, the youngest female on the mic, this where I should be now!” That was just the beginning! Over the years she continued to write, working on her craft, but she was not yet recording. It wasn’t until the summer of 2009 that she starting recording her work, mainly for herself, family, and friends to enjoy. During this time she was mixing and mastering her tracks herself acting as producer, engineer, and artist all in one. It wasn’t until August 2011, when an incident occurred that resulted in the theft of over 200 of her original songs, that she decided to release her talent to the public. It has been on since!
She has already completed two projects (Just A Taste, When Doors Close and Legs Open) and is currently working on her third release titled “Open Doors….The Mixtape”. The concept of this project is about breaking down barriers and seizing opportunities as they come. As a lesbian rapper, she receives a lot criticism regarding the display of her sexuality in her lyrics. With this project she wants to let the rap game know whether they like it or not, she’s here to stay, exactly as she is. The project is loving at times and vulgar at others, but it’s true to her being throughout the whole project. Being true to self is something that is very important to Sweetie G as an artist. Aside from that, she is also in the process of developing her own entertainment company! The company will host rap artist and groups, singers, disc jockeys, photographers, and videographers. Many of the people involved are family members who had their own ventures going on, and decided to join together under one company, Sweetie G acting as CEO. Be on the lookout for SweetTalk ENT coming to a party near you!
Sweetie G has elevated her stage presence performing at countless Hip Hop shows across the city! Her ventures range from the typical ‘hood’ spots such as Taboo Lounge and Galaxy Lounge on her home turf in Homewood and Club 804 in Braddock, to more eccentric places like Shadow Lounge and Cabaret Lounge. She is most proud of her nomination for best female hip-hop artist of 2012 for the Pittsburgh Underground Music Awards. If you were to ask Sweetie G why she does music, her response would be such, “I do it for me, then I give it to you, because the things that I’ve seen, I know you been through it too”. To her music is a form of healing. “You don’t just hear her music, you feel it! If you can relate, then you feel it even deeper!” a fellow artist said of Sweetie G’s style on the track. To her it’s therapy. Some people share their thought with a therapist , but she’d rather pour her heart on a track and share it with the world, in hopes that it makes someone feel better. Even if it’s just for the moment!
