On the heels of Issa Rae’s upcoming HBO comedy Rap S—, the television executive is shouting out some musical talents that helped her write some raps for the show. Rae discussed her newest project during a recent appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers.
“We were able to have a traditional writers room, which was really funny, brilliant writers. Some of them were from Miami. And then, just to be able to have authentic rap– like the music has to be good, they actually have to be good rappers, we got to employ some of my favorite rap artists,” Rae said, citing PineappleCITI, Ncognita, and Dreezy.
In addition to adding some of Rae’s favorite rappers on the bill, she has also tapped in Florida natives and rap stars Yung Miami and JT from City Girls as executive producers for the show.
The upcoming comedy follows Aida Osman and KaMillion as two aspiring female rappers. The first two episodes of Rap S— will be arriving on HBO on July 21. Check out Rae’s appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers below:
