Saweetie was one of dozens of performers who took the stage at Made in America Festival last weekend in Philadelphia.

The Bay Area rapper brought her energy all the way to the East Coast, taking over the Tidal Stage on Sunday.

But before the “ICY GRL” took the stage to perform in front of thousands of fans, ESSENCE met up with Saweetie as she prepared for her big show.

Take a look at what it’s like to be a performer at Made in America:
