For her first time on Sway in the Morning, Issa Rae was all smiles as she mentions that Sway’s essence reminds her of her older brother.
An accomplished actress, author, executive producer, Golden Globe and Emmy nominated powerhouse, she modestly speaks on beginning her Awkward Black Girl YouTube series which ultimately wound up being picked up by HBO and led her to be the creator of Insecure.
Issa Rae is a busy woman. Her and her “big brother,” Sway bond over unplugging from social media and why she prefers it — but Sway then laughs admitting that he hasn’t been on social media because he actually forgot his passwords.
While promoting Little, (in theaters, April 11) she reveals that Marsai Martin actually first pitched this movie to Will Packer when she was 10 years old! And now, at age 14, she serves as Executive Producer.
Watch this not-so-awkward force of a woman below and catch Little in theaters on April 11.
