Issa Rae & City Girls have collaborated on a new HBO Max series titled Rap Shit!
The new show, to be released on July 21, will highlight women breaking into the Hip-Hop industry, focusing on Shawn and Mia who form a rap group.
“I think this is just such a unique time in hip-hop, especially when it comes to female rappers, because there’s such an abundance, and it doesn’t feel like they’re all in competition with each other. I’m a child of the ’90s, and there used to always be a tendency to put two women against one another,” Rae said. “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.”
