Saweetie is giving back to her alma mater, University of Southern California, in a big way. Last week, the "Icy" rapper went back to her alma mater to visit a business class she once took while she was a student there. Saweetie graduated from USC in 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication.
During the business class, the rapper discussed entrepreneurship and gave business advice. She even offered a lucky student $1000 if they could sell her a bottle of water.
But with all the success she's experienced in her career since she hit the scene with "ICY GRL" in 2017, the rapper discovered a few gems along the way that relates to her mental health. Saweetie revealed to the class that she believes in meditating, so much so that she says it's better than sex.
"It's my new favorite thing to do. Meditating is better than sex," she said.
"I'm just saying the peace you get, the clarity you get, it's really important for everyone to meditate. And I think the reason why I was so discouraged at first, I--- because I'm thinking that you have to be in a cream[-colored] room, like yoga-ish. But I meditate everywhere."
She also dished on what she likes to do after her meditation practice that helps her get through the day.
"At the end or throughout my meditation I write down three goals of the day or I take three positive adjectives to describe myself and it really works, that's why it manifests in a day."
Meditation seems to be working for the "My Type" rapper. Over the last few months, Saweetie has announced some major moves in her career that are helping to diversify and set her apart as an artist.
Following the success of her McDonald's Saweetie meal, the Bay area artist's Netflix show Sex: Unzipped premiered in late October, she recently partnered with Crocs to become the brand's newest face and she will be hosting the 2021 MTV's EMA's on November 14.
We see you Saweetie!
