If a celebrity comes from a famous family, people usually assume that person is using their bloodline’s notoriety to touch success. And while there is nothing wrong with that—Hip-Hop’s Icy Girl says she wanted to get to the top of the charts on her own, without riding the coattails of her well known kin.
Saweetie is shutting down rumors that her cousin, actress Gabrielle Union, helped her “Tap In” to the A-list level of the industry by opening doors for her.
She revealed that none of her famous relatives even knew she was doing music until she dropped “My Type,” during an interview with “Desus & Mero.” Saweetie said, “I believe in being self-made and trying to figure things out in my own. I appreciated that they reached out.”
