HBO Max has announced the stars of “Rap Sh*t,” their forthcoming original series from Issa Rae.
“Rap Sh*t” follows two estranged high school friends from Miami, Shawna and Mia, who reunite to form a rap group.
Get the scoop on the cast below:
Aida Osman (Executive Story Editor on “Rap Sh*t,” Host of Crooked Media Podcast “Keep It”) will play “Shawna,” an aspiring rapper that hasn’t seen success and continues to work her day job at a touristy hotel.
KaMillion (Rapper/Singer of “Twerk 4 Me,” “Love & Hip Hop Miami”) will play “Mia,” a makeup artist and estranged friend of Shawna’s. She is a single mother to a four-year-old daughter and works three jobs.
Jonica Booth (“Bad Girls Club”) will play “Chastity.” Chastity is a “sex work manager” and refers to herself as the “Duke of Miami.”
The streamer placed an eight-episode order to the half-hour comedy series from the “Insecure” co-creator, Syreeta Singleton and City Girls hip hop duo Yung Miami and JT.
Issa will write the pilot episode and executive produce the series.
Syreeta will serve as showrunner.
Yung Miami and JT serve as co-executive producers along with Kevin “Coach K” Lee and Pierre “P” Thomas for Quality Control Films.
I’m looking forward to checking out “Rap Sh*t.”
