It feels like we’re in an era where there’s such a supportive environment now because of that abundance. All of that, combined with just my own story of coming up, became the next story that I wanted to tell.”Insecure’s final episode aired back in December. In the years since it debuted, Rae has expanded her career by working on several films including Little, The Photograph, The Lovebirds, and more.Rap Sh!t is scheduled to hit HBO Max on July 21, 2022.Check out the trailer for HBO’s Rap Sh!t below.[Via]
