Saweetie put the fellas on notice today.
Saweetie should be celebrating the release of her new single “Back To The Streets” feat. Jhene Aiko, instead she just started a whole new dating debate. While on her boo, Quavo’s Instagram Live, the “My Type” rapper preached a new standard that the ladies should live by when it comes to selecting a potential bae.
Saweetie boasted he basically isn’t worth your time if he ain’t buying Birkin Bags or paying bills. Now keep in mind, Hermès Birkin bags are handcrafted and strictly exclusive are regarded as the most expensive bags in the world and could set you back $40,000 to $500,000 for just one bag.
Now, Trump-supporting rapper 50 Cent rapped on Pop Smoke’s record “The Woo” that when it comes to the bags that if you can’t buy her a Birkin that “You might be out your league.”
As you can imagine, Saweetie’s honest but unrealistic standards when it comes to being courted have sparked a battle of the sexes on Twitter that is sure to spill over to other social media mediums. Case in point, one woman on Twitter, wrote:
“Men in the comments are mad women have standards. But there are multiple tweets on here of men saying they want women with money Black men and their jedi mind trick pimparchy tactics.”
A male user replied:
“I’m glad u think buying a Birkin is a “Standard”…. Some of yall are experts at masking your materialism and calling it a standard….”
It’s literally the war of the roses going on Twitter right now. But for the most part, people are displaying common sense when it comes to the Birkin Bag dating requirement and even pointing out that the bags are not worth their steep asking price.

Personally I’d buy my wife 10 Telfair bags in different colors before I buy her 1 Birkin. At least they respect your dollar and they’re black owned. Hermès didn’t even want Oprah in their store and she’s a fucking black billionaire... you think they care about rap money ? Tuh ..— Rucker Game Attender ... (@RossSean177) October 23, 2020
9. Heard you king.
I’d rather pay off her student loans than spend $20k+ on a Birkin bag.— NUFF (@nuffsaidny) October 23, 2020
I don’t give a FUCK! I’m not paying no 20K for no fucking Birkin bag y’all bitches is BIRKIN up the wrong fucking treee!— A🌎🗯 (@KingVirgo9) October 23, 2020
The funny thing about the Birkin argument is that those bags are almost impossible to get even if you can afford one bc Hermès only makes a certain amount every season and they go to people on the PR list first. That means a lot of the girls are out here rockin’ fakes anyway. pic.twitter.com/F1BBcbcCPI— in a panny? (@lookitstaylorrr) October 23, 2020
12. Good question
Sooooo... if ya kewchie is worth a Birkin bag, why don’t ya already have one? pic.twitter.com/yaweZxqyZn— Maaaarrrrccuuusss Daaaarrrrrlllliinngg (@3volG3nius) October 23, 2020
13. Thank you
I really hope regular women with regular paying jobs aren’t requiring regular men with regular paying jobs to buy them Birkin bags...IN THIS ECONOMY!?!?!?— Shafreeka Lovechild 🇵🇦 (@_PanamaGold) October 23, 2020
This caption left out the part where she said if he ain’t paying your bills throw him back to the streets she know everyone don’t want or can’t afford a birkin bag . Her point was if that nigga ain’t doing shit for you SEND HIM BACK TO THE FUCKING STREETS.— AnnieeLG🦂🧝🏾♀️✨ (@AnnieeLG_) October 23, 2020
Y’all be letting these celebrities normalize stupid shit that’s not even normal. When did a Birkin bag become a relationship requirement? If that man buy me a pair of UGGs he’s greatly appreciated. Tf.— Tink (@TINKaliscious_) October 23, 2020
