West Coast rapper Saweetie is deading all the talk. Amidst rumors that she had been spending time with ex-boyfriend and rap star Quavo, she went online to shut it all down. Saweetie Reveals Truth About Getting Back W/ Quavo Saw asked where the headline came from on Twitter and plugged her dope new McDonald’s meal. […]
It has been a few months since Saweetie announced her breakup with Quavo, but that hasn’t stopped some fans of the couple from hoping for a reconciliation between the two rappers. However, that outcome seemly less than likely after Saweetie herself snuffed out a recent tabloid report that the two had begun spending time together again. Jack Harlow/Saweetie shippers, rejoice!
Earlier this week, Hollywood Life, a gossip blog, published the report that Saweetie and Quavo had reunited, quoting a “music insider” saying that they were “both in New York and have quietly been spending time together on the DL.” Aside from the fact that “quietly” and “on the DL” mean the same thing, there’s little else to the story in terms of reliable sourcing, but when has that ever stopped the Twitter speculation machine from running at max capacity?
Today, though, the ultimate primary source weighed in: Saweetie herself. Quoting the tweet linking to the article, she definitively shut down the report while directing attention back to her actual business, “Pinocchio ass article,” she scoffed. “Anyways back to this #saweetiemeal.”

It isn’t the first time Saweetie dismissed public perceptions of her private business. In a May interview, she similarly redirected the conversation to her business plans. “I want 900 million dollars,” she said. “I look at Rihanna. I look at Kylie. I look at all the girls who are working in the worlds that I’m in. I kind of averaged out the money between all these women I admire, and 900 million is the number. So if I’m having a bad day, I’m just like, ‘900 million, girl! Go!’” Her recent collaboration with McDonald’s may well get her one step closer; earlier this week she launched her merchandise collection with the fast-food giant and recently told fans her album is finished.
Saweetie is a Warner Music artist. Uproxx is an independent subsidiary of Warner Music Group.
One of the few good things to come out of the 2020 pandemic forcing a near-shutdown of the entertainment industry was NPR’s Tiny Desk Concerts series moving to its “At Home” format, which opened up the concept and allowed more artists who wouldn’t have normally been able to perform due to travel and other commitments to turn in some of the best shows in the series’ history. For instance, Vince Staples and Young Thug both recently put in performances that highlighted new and upcoming releases with utterly magnetic charisma and arrangements.
Migos, the Atlanta-based trio who built their brand with exuberant performances over the past five years, is the latest example, appearing on the latest Tiny Desk Concert from what looks like one of the guys’ living rooms. Playing a three-song set from their new album Culture III including “Avalanche,” “Straightenin,” and “Happy Birthday,” Migos assert their claim for “greatest band in the world,” starting out on the couch and eventually filling the room with palpable, infectious energy.

Hip-hop stars Quavo and Saweetie might be back together. New reports reveal the two musicians have been clocking in time with one another after a painful breakup several months ago.

Atlanta rap trio The Migos had a bowling night they won’t soon forget. Group leader Quavo went to his Instagram page to share some of the moments from the night ranging from going for a strike to posing outside the spot. Kick back and check out five snapshots from the bromance goals-driven outing. 1. Big […]
Atlanta rapper Quavo knows how to hold his family down. The hip-hop star goes to Instagram with fresh footage of his mom turning up on her born day. You can instantly tell Edna Marshall is focused on putting together an epic swing. For her special day, she didn’t even bother to throw on some sneakers […]
Atlanta rapper Quavo wasn’t joking around about his assistant. The hip-hop star has acknowledged just how much he looks out for his go-to. Huncho promises he’s blessing his employee with $5,000 daily. You can almost get a clear look at his helper keeping him shaded with an umbrella. Quavo has never made money a big […]
It pays to work with Atlanta native Quavo. The Migos star went online to reveal just how much his assistant gets paid. Quavo’s Assistant Gets Paid Big Money Quavo says his assistant gets $5,000 per day, and gave him the ultimate crown millionaire title. If you do the math out, that’s $1,825,000 per year – […]
How in the world would fans find out the rate that Migos star Quavo pays his assistant you might ask? Well, the rapper himself bragged about the number on Instagram, of course. In a recent post, Quavo shared a photo of himself checking his phone outside while said assistant, one Joshua Washington, held an umbrella over his head to shield the sun and pointed a portable fan his way. Quavo tagged his assistant in the pic, and let fans know, his actions don’t go unappreciated.
Captioning the pic: “5k a Day My Asst. A Millionaire!” Quavo set off a whole conversation among Migos fans about the seemingly exorbitant rate. Then again, given how many stories we’ve heard about extremely wealthy celebrities treating their employees very poorly, this overpayment is a welcome rebuttal. Doing some quick calculations here about Mr. Washington’s total take home pay… if he makes $5,000 a day that’s $35,000 a week and $120,000 a month.
$120,000 annually is considered to be a pretty hefty salary in America, so multiply that 12 for each month and his total annual pay is $1,440,000. In which case, Quavo’s post is right, his assistant is most certainly a millionaire as he makes over a million in a year. Then again, maybe the daily rate is a sporadic one, and he’s not really working 365 like that. Let it be known, I too am available for assistant work if anyone in Migos is in LA for a few days without help and needs a hand.
