Issa Rae Threw The Ultimate Block Party

Everyone's favorite Awkward Black Girl Issa Rae knows how to throw a good block party! Food, flowing drinks and music filling the street in Brooklyn is the only way to do it. The star of HBO's new series Insecure presented a screening for the show and kept the party going with a DJ and a performance by BJ The Chicago Kid. The pilot is streaming on HBO now, but we can't wait to see what Miss Rae has in store when Insecure airs on HBO on October 9th!
