    She gonna play a 40 year old rapper? Really? 8 episodes….on streaming? I’m sorry, I don’t believe people have interest in Issa. HBO said we need a black show, so we can get some black customers, and we got the best PR people in Hollywood to hype you to America. Enter Insecure. Unfortunately no one cares or has paid any money to watch any of her film flops. She will disappear in about 4 years.

    Love Issa, but I don’t know about this. Perhaps I will be more interested when the cast is announced, but anything City Girls and Quality Control turns me right off.
