ENTER: Texas Southern University. Our Hottie Dean Megan Thee Stallion's alma mater, and undoubtedly, one of the most prestigious + cultured HBCU’s in the states. The IYO Collective was brought on board to tell the stories of what Flamin' Hot University feels like at homecoming and the energy of any given hump day where students can collect a coin towards eliminating student debt!​​​​​​​IYO
Our vision for this docu style piece was to lean into Megan's return back to her hometown alma-mater, Texas Southern University. This visual narrative is an invitation into the intimate thoughts of Thee Stallion as she shares her early challenges navigating loans for her collegiate education. We welcome you to the yard, where the Hot Girl unleashed her Flamin' Hot by providing graduating seniors a $175K scholarship to help alleviate student debt. 
This poetic montage style piece offers glimpses into the unique elements that make a HBCU Homecoming truly extraordinary – the preparation, the fellowship, the ball game and of course the Flamin' Hot stage. 

We wanted to present a captivating array of perspectives... some familiar, echoing the native essence of social media and web, while others offer a fresh, unexpected take on the experiences.
