Saweetie is a gotta-get-mine, boasting-and-roasting rapper in the tradition of Foxy Brown, Mia X, and Slick Rick. High Maintenance shows off her elegant personality and salty tongue. She raps with a deep voice, putting corny dudes in check (“B.A.N.”) and enjoying the finer things (“Agua”). Saweetie honors her Bay Area roots with regional slang and interpolating Too $hort’s “Shake That Monkey” on the title track. Then on “ICY GRL,” she turns Khia’s randy “My Neck, My Back” into a squad anthem.
