Hip-hop is regarded as one of the most wide-ranging
cultural movements. A good deal of hip-hop communicates
openly and in depth about aspects of urban hustle and
poverty. And the hold that hip-hoppers who speak about
street culture have on young individuals is amazing.
Thais Gonzalez is one such hip-hop artist whose
unique beats is turning heads. Here’s her story.
Thais Gonzalez has become a name to reckon with in the
hip-hop space. Previously known as “Princess Thais”,
she has now gained popularity among her fans as “Sweet
Té”(@iamsweette). Before setting the hip-hop world on
fire with her amazing and distinctive beats, Thais was
already a sensation in the world of
modelling, music, and poetry.
Thais’ singles which established her as a rising hip-hop
star were “Took His Money” and “Heat”. They were released
in 2018 and 2019 respectively and instantly caught on
across America and popular radio stations like Hot 97.
Thais credits the success of her singles to the legendary
Hip Hop land rapper Parrish Smith of EPMD who produced as
well as starred in both of them. No sooner were the
singles released than they started setting the clubs
in the United States on fire, making people groove to
Thais’ unique, rad beats. Soon, her hip-hop numbers
landed in the list of the most heard singles.
In 2020, Thais’ remix to Felix Felgado’s latest single
“On My New York Sh*t” got a grand release which put her
popularity on a spurt. Thais is also known for her
appearances in many music videos with famous artists
like Rich Homie Quan and Rick Ross.
What differentiates Thais from other hip-hop artists?
She answers, “I am not competing with anyone but myself.
I respect all artists and learn from them. Perhaps that
is what enables me to tune with them easily and
collaborate with top hip-hop artists.”
