Saweetie wants to return to her alma mater as a college professor. Last week, ahead of her performance at the Z100 Jingle Ball in New York City, the “My Type” emcee confirmed that she is in talks to teach a course at the University of Southern California.
“The rumors are true,” she said of the chatter regarding her potential gig. “I would love to teach a class about branding, marketing in the modern day because it’s important for businesses to evolve with modern consumers, generations Z, the millennials. They are the people spending the money.”
Before starting her rap career, Saweetie attended USC’s Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism and graduated in 2016 with a bachelor’s degree in communications and a concentration in business. She’s since flaunted her business knowledge at her own “Icy University” aka instructional videos in which she teaches her fans how to start a business and be a “pretty bitch” and discusses sensitive topics like self-care and mental health. In June, she teamed up with esports company Gen G to host Icy Baby workshops about gaming, cooking, music, lifestyle, and fashion and beauty for Asian American entrepreneurs.
Then in October, the Bay Area rapper shared her knowledge with a few USC students when she paid the college a visit.
According to PEOPLE, Saweetie talked about her time at USC, how she’s “self-made” and even challenged students to impress her with their bottle-selling skills, offering a $1,000 cash prize to the winner. Unfortunately, no one took home the money, prompting her to leave some words of advice about connecting with consumers.
