Saweetie Joins ‘BMF’ as Keeya: A Sparkplug with Sass | WATCH

*Rapper Saweetie is stepping further into the world of acting with her role as Keeya in the third season of the highly acclaimed Starz series “BMF.” She gave us a glimpse into her character and what it’s like to transition from the music scene to the screen.

Keeya is no ordinary character, as Saweetie described her. “I feel like she’s a different type of female character that’s being introduced to the season, very tomboy,” Saweetie explained. “She’s very much in the boys club and can hold her own.” Keeya brings a fresh dynamic to the series, embodying the essence of a confident, sassy, and outspoken young woman.

For Saweetie, taking on this role was a departure from her usual musician roles.

“Typically, I’m cast for musician roles. But I told my agent, no more musician roles. I’m a musician every day. So I was really excited to play this character.”

Drawing from her own experiences growing up, Saweetie found it easy to tap into Keeya’s energy.

“I grew up with a whole bunch of guy cousins. I grew up with a whole bunch of uncles. So I was a tomboy for like half of my life,” she revealed. “I honestly feel like I tapped into the younger version of myself, which made it really easy.”

Fans can expect Keeya to make a memorable entrance onto the scene.

“She’s a sassy girl who’s confident, she got a mouthpiece on her,” Saweetie teased. “And honestly, she reminded me of me.”

As Saweetie makes her mark in episode 307. “BMF” airs Fridays on STARZ.
