How Saweetie's Net Worth Soared To $4M After Being A Broke College Student

“Can’t stop, won’t stop, get guap.” 

Ever since Saweetie spit that mantra at the beginning of her iconic “Icy Girl” Freestyle in 2017, the Bay Area rapper has been on a non-stop grind to the top. The question now is how much is  Saweetie’s net worth? Celebrity Net Worth estimates it to be $4 million.

Saweetie’s Net Worth: The Come Up

Saweetie, born Diamonté Quiava Valentin Harper, has mastered the art of collaborating. The Black and Filipino artist also knows how to make a buck, fostering partnerships in almost every industry there is from gaming, alcohol, clothing, and of course music. 

The 27-year-old’s grind started back in college. While earning a bachelor’s of communication from the University of Southern California (USC), she started the brand Money Makin’ Mamis and sold hats and t-shirts.

“I like to get my weave, my nails, I like going shopping. I had to keep myself up,” she told USC’s student paper The Daily Trojan. “And how do you do that? With four jobs.”

Saweetie’s Net Worth: Queen of Collabs

Saweetie may no longer be a broke college student but her hustle is the same. Today she stays tapped into the college crowd with Icy University, teaching business and money tips as the Icy Professor. Keeping her foot in the fashion door with a 2019 collaboration with Pretty Little Thing debuting at New York Fashion Week and releasing two capsule collections also contributed to Saweetie’s net worth. The list of collabs keep going, including make up brand Morphe, Sinful Colors nail polish, and a new sunglasses line with Quay Australia. 

Fortunately, the 2020 pandemic didn’t appear to slow her down, the internet sweetheart and her team leaned into virtual content. 

More so, as a philanthropist, Saweetie often used her strategic brand partnerships to come together for a good cause. For example, her participation in Snoop Dogg’s gaming compound and X Box to raise money for underprivileged youth. She also partnered with her musical bestie, Doja Cat, to giveaway a Tesla. 

Her music royalty checks are heavy too, with the hit singles like “My Type,” “Tap In,” “Back to the Streets,” and features on several songs all charting on the Billboard 100. Her latest project, the Pretty Summer Playlist, released in April. 

In 2021, the star has already worked with music legend Gwen Stefani and graced the cover of Cosmopolitan and W magazine. At this rate, there’s no cap on who her next collaborator may be to boost Saweetie’s net worth even more.
