Saweetie has been tapped to appear as a guest star in the second season of the popular drama series Bel-Air, which returns to Peacock in February.

According to Variety, the Bay Area rapper will appear as herself in the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air-inspired series. It was not specified how many episodes she will be included in.

Based on the viral short film director Morgan Cooper released in 2019, Bel-Air is a contemporary drama focused on reimagining the complicated journey of the series lead, Jabari Banks, from the streets of West Philadelphia into the lap of luxury abundant in the exclusive gated community of Bel-Air.

With executive production coming from Will Smith himself and original show heavy hitters such as Quincy Jones and Benny Medina, the goal for the series is to “dive deeper into the inherent conflicts, emotions and biases that were impossible to fully explore in a 30-minute sitcom format.”

The show, which was picked up by Peacock for two seasons, debuted in 2022, quickly gaining fans even beyond those who loved the original NBC sitcom. Among them was DJ Jazzy Jeff, who voiced his support for the new series during an interview with HipHopDX.

“I wasn’t involved in the making [of the show], but I am one of the hosts of the official Bel Air Podcast that’s coming out,” said the renowned producer, who famously played Will’s best friend Jazz in the original series. “I am super-duper excited because, without giving any spoilers, if someone was to take The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air in the ’90s and move it to ’20 to ’22 and put a dramatic spin on it, I don’t think they could have done a better job.

He continued: “I think more people are going to be talking about Bel-Air than the Super Bowl. It is that good. If I take myself out of it, this is mind-blowing. This might be my favorite show ever.”

The Bel-Air: Official Podcast debuted in February 2022 with DJ Jazzy Jeff and co-host Aida Osman. For the inaugural episode, they spoke to Bel-Air director and executive producer Morgan Cooper. The companion series followed-up with an interview with Cooper, composers Terrace Martin and Robert Glasper and co-showrunner Rasheed Newson about how important fashion and music are to the show for Episode 2.

While she will be playing herself on Bel-Air, Saweetie comes to the show with previous acting experience. The “ICY GRL” rapper made her acting debut on ABC’s Grown-ish in 2021, playing a bossy rapper named Indigo.

Unhappy with the wardrobe picked out for her, Saweetie’s character demands the show’s main star, Yara Shahidi’s Zoey Johnson — who dropped out of college to be Joey Bada$$’ stylist — fix the situation or things could get ugly.

Following the release of her latest project, The Single Life, the 29-year-old stopped by The Bootleg Kev Podcast and addressed all the “Queen” titles she’s been receiving. Unlike other artists who would gladly take the title, Saweetie would rather not accept it and continue working on her craft.

According to the “Tap In” rapper, she doesn’t like when people self-proclaim or adopt a title on their own.

“I don’t want to self-proclaim the ‘Queen statement,’ but when I’m in certain cities or certain areas, they’ll just call me this and call me that,” Saweetie said. “I’ve been called the ‘Queen of California’ and many queen things. It’s not something I’m trying to title, that’s why I had another voice say it on my [‘Single Life’] project. I don’t like it when people self-proclaim.”
