Rae tells Harper's Bazaar, which has first-look photos from Rap Sh!t (previously known as Rap Sh*t), that she developed out of her original script for Insecure when Issa Dee had a secret desire to become a superstar rapper. But then she realized the concept could be its own series. "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," says Rae. "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."
