When birthday season rolls around it’s possible to say that some of us can relate to the lyrics of Trap Beckham’s b-day anthem on our special day. And with January 12th being one of our favorite baddie’s birthday, today, we’re turning up for the fabulous Ms. Issa Rae!
We stan an unproblematic Black queen, and Rae has had her finger on the pulse of our culture since her YouTube days of Awkward Black Girl. She’s given us laugh-after-laugh with her hit television series Insecure, and she’s not only smart, funny and relatable, she’s also hella stylish– thanks to the help of her friend and fashion stylist, Jason Rembert.
