Issa Rae’s Rap Sh!t & Chasing Your Music Dreams


Snooze is still on a break. But for the next few weeks, we're bringing you some podcast episodes you’ll enjoy! In the first episode in our series, we feature NPR’s Pop Culture Happy Hour. On the episode, you'll hear all about Rap Sh!t, an HBO Max series that Snooze host Megan Tan loves. Pop Culture Happy Hour co-host Aisha Harris and panelist Sidney Madden take us into the world of Rap Sh!t, which is about two aspiring female rappers in Miami. On the show, Shawn and Mia (played by Aida Osman and KaMillion) face challenges as they try to break into the music industry together. Though they face adversity in work and love, the two support each other through it all — and capture their journeys with smartphones, no less.

HOORAE: Issa Rae

How I Built This with Guy Raz

Obsessed with TV and passionate about writing, Issa Rae sent an unsolicited script to CBS’s Cosby when she was still in middle school. By her 20's, she realized there was a certain type of character that was absent from the media landscape—a character she would eventually inhabit in her breakout YouTube series, "Mis-Adventures of Awkward Black Girl." From there, Issa created the five-season HBO hit Insecure, but first went through a bruising gauntlet of rejections and reversals as she learned to navigate Hollywood. Today, Issa has built a company—HOORAE Media—which produces her new HBO show, Rap Sh!t, and multiple other TV and film projects. Listen to The Great Creators launching September 20thSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
