Pink Sweat$ Wastes Time w/ ItsTheReal

blame it on Shake July 10, 2019

Philly’s rising star Pink Sweat$ is next up to waste time with ItsTheReal on the Upper West Side.

We talk growing up “mad Christian,” his family’s dueling churches, learning to play drums on Sundays, his days as the worst kind of student, living a life with no internet or television or radio, how moving to the suburbs brought Maroon 5 and Avril Lavigne and affection for dogs into his life, trying to get fired from his job at Chik-Fil-A, his life-altering health issues and how he kept it from family and friends, what ultimately sent him to the doctor, and what a second lease on life meant, how he got into songwriting, finding his way to Los Angeles, working with Wiz Khalifa, Tierra Whack, Justin Bieber and more, what his family thinks of his live performances, where the name Pink Sweat$ came from and whether he’d ever give up the bit, his thoughts on lettuce, and much more!
