Saweetie reflects on struggling days before fame & money


Saweetie recalls her broke days

is enjoying a fairly successful career now but that wasn't always the case. During a recent interview on 's Brown Bag In The Morning, the rapper recounted not having a place of her own back in the day.

“I remember I was too proud to tell my friends and my family that I had nowhere to stay and I was literally couch surfing,” she recalled.

“But it was cool because people always wanted to be around, so I didn't have to worry about having a place to stay, but my homegirls knew what was going on. But I never wanted to take up space in someone's house, so I would just keep my closet in my car.”

She added, “Girl, talk about having no confidence. I would even feel bad about partying. I know I just made that comment, but it's just like— imagine not having the money, couch surfing, and then sometimes being in the club or being at parties. I would always just go home early because I felt like I didn't deserve to be there.”
