According to Variety, Saweetie will star on the show as herself. Further details about her cameo have not been revealed as of press time, though the rapper did take to her Instagram Story on Thursday to post a video of her interacting with the Bel-Air cast during her guest spot.

“It’s an honor to be here. Shout-out to the cast, they’re really dope. Good vibes,” she said in the brief clip, which she captioned, “Hella excited to be a part of @belairpeacock @peacocktv season 2 dropping 2/23.”

Bel-Air isn’t Saweetie’s first television role: The 29-year-old previously appeared in several episodes of Freeform’s Black-ish spinoff show Grown-ish, as rapper Indigo. “The first time on set, it was just a little nerve-racking because I want it to be perfect for them,” she told Complex about acting on the show. “But I found when I was just in my vibe, in my moment with Yara [Shahidi], that’s when the best scenes would come.”

As for Saweetie’s music, she most recently released her six-track EP The Single Life in November.
