Issa Rae is renowned for keeping it candid – both on-screen and off.
And the star – whose groundbreaking series ‘Insecure’ wrapped last night – lived up to said billing when asked about her foray into the music industry with her label Raedio.
Full story below…
When quizzed by Variety if the music industry is “a place where good ideas flourish,” Rae responded:
“It’s probably the worst industry I’ve ever come across. I thought Hollywood was crazy. The music industry, it has to start all over again. There are lots of conflicts of interest. Archaic mentalities. Villains and criminals! It’s an addiction industry, and I really feel for artists who need to get into it.”
“I thought Hollywood was crazy. The music industry, it has to start all over again. There are lots of conflicts of interest. Archaic mentalities. Villains and criminals! It’s an addiction industry, and I really feel for artists who need to get into it. … It was something shocking.”
Expanding on the differences, the creative force added:
“I do not want to be too specific, but even with making our own appointments [for soundtracks] with labels or artists, it would be so intricate. And to find out how artists were treated on other labels … When I myself am a creator and know what I want in relation to a relationship with a production company or a producer, I would like to think that we are more artist-friendly than much of other brands and companies out there. I want to renew things.”

She spoke no LIES. The Music Industry is operated & controlled by Men/Women who want to see “pagan” Ideology promoted.
The Ancient Babylonian Gods are being re-Introduced while Hollyweird take on their likeliness as a form of worship.
ThatGrapeJuice should do more to spotlight unsigned / up and coming artists. Their website used to be my go-to for new talent but idk what they’re doing now or who runs this site now. Barely any UK talent on here
You should definitely checkout “Bandcamp” This website features daily updates of NEW talent, Underground & Indie music from a variety of genres.
