Saweetie has been known for giving us great music and serving looks for all the icy girls, but did you know she got it from her mama?! Trinidad Valentin is the name of the Saweetie’s mother and when we say she is fine…whew!

The Icy Momma had Saweetie when she was only 17 years old. Saweetie’s Asian roots come from her mother who is Filipino-Chinese. (Another fun fact: according to Hot New Hip-Hop, Saweetie’s grandfather played for the San Francisco 49ers and her cousin is Gabrielle Union.)

“My mom was 17 when she had me, so my parents were always working, and my grandma took care of me,” she told The Line of Best Fit. “My mom and my dad both come from big families, too – nine of my dad’s side and seven on my mom’s side. We didn’t grow up rich, or at least I know I didn’t, which is why it feels good to make all this money, because I’ve never been able to just buy whatever I wanted to.”

In fact, Saweetie loves her mom so much that she shouted her out on her 2017 song “High Maintenance.” 

“Cause I wouldn’t take a bullet for a n*gga, that’s a lie,” she raps. And that’s word to my mother, she the Filipino queen. And she hella high maintenance, I’ma get her what she need.”

She even posted a clip of her and her mom dancing to the song on Instagram.

 

People also might not know that Saweetie’s mother was also a video model back in her days and has appeared in music videos for notables artists like Nelly and DMX. The rapper made the revelation during the latest episode of her YouTube series The Icy Life, where she gives fans a behind the scenes look at her life.

Saweetie was enjoying some time by the pool when her mom came outside and asked,”Where’s the rest of your outfit?”

“She act like she ain’t used to be wearing this back in her day, okay?” the rapper replied, following up with clips of her mom’s cameos in some popular 2000s music videos.

You can check out her mom in Nelly’s video for “Ride Wit Me” at the :38 mark.

Saweetie’s mom was also a featured model in DMX’s video for “What They Really Want.” Peep her at the 2:03 mark.
