The Song That Earned Saweetie A $10K Check Recently Came Under Criticism By Rapper Khia
Saweetie’s 2017 debut single “ICY GRL” may have earned her her first-ever performance and $10,000 rap check, however, the single has since been criticized by fellow female rapper Khia.
As The Shade Room previously reported, “ICY GRL” samples Khia’s 2001 hit single “My Neck, My Back.” In a recent interview, Khia revealed that Saweetie’s sample of the single is her “least favorite.”
“Least favorite would be Saweetie… ‘sweet pea’ — I don’t like her. I don’t think she did it any justice.”
In a video clip shared via Twitter, Khia went on to mumble the beginning of Saweetie’s “ICY GRL.”
Then she continued.
“She used ‘My Neck, My Back’… But I didn’t like that.”
