Issa Rae + the City Girls? That’s one helluva executive producer combination.
Last month it was announced that the highly anticipated Max Original comedy series RAP SH!T, from Emmy® and Golden Globe® nominee Issa Rae, will debut THURSDAY, JULY 21 with two episodes. Today HBO Max blessed us with the official trailer. Check it out below:
If you need a little break down, “RAP SH!T” follows two estranged high school friends from Miami, Shawna (Aida Osman) and Mia (KaMillion), who reunite to form a rap group. The show stars Aida Osman, KaMillion, Jonica Booth, Devon Terrell and RJ Cyler.
From the looks of the trailer, Shawna and Mia are living VASTLY different lives when they reconnect and we foresee a lot of squabbles in their future.
RAP SH!T is executive produced by Issa Rae and showrunner Syreeta Singleton, as well as Montrel McKay for HOORAE, Jonathan Berry and Dave Becky for 3 Arts Entertainment, and Deniese Davis. Hip hop duo Yung Miami and JT of City Girls serve as co-executive producers, along with Kevin “Coach K” Lee and Pierre “P” Thomas for Quality Control Films and Sara Rastogi for HOORAE. Rae’s audio content company Raedio handles music supervision for the series.
Rae also wrote the premiere episode and co-wrote the finale episode with Singleton.
The eight-episode season continues with one episode each week, concluding on September 1.
This is about to be interesting! What did you think about the trailer? Are you excited for the July 21st premiere?
