The eight-episode second season will continue with one episode weekly, leading up to the season finale on December 21.
Rap Sh!t Season 2 follows two estranged high school friends from Miami, Shawna and Mia, who reunite to form a rap group.
In their rise to fame, Shawna and Mia find themselves at a pivotal moment in their rap career as they are forced to decide if they will stay true to themselves or conform to the demands of the music industry.
The cast includes Aida Osman (Shawna), KaMillion (Mia), Jonica Booth (Chastity), RJ Cyler (Lamont), and Daniel Augustin (Maurice).
Hip-hop duo Yung Miami and JT of City Girls serve as co-executive producers, along with Kevin “Coach K” Lee and Pierre “P” Thomas for Quality Control Films and Sara Rastogi and Jax Clark for HOORAE.
Rae’s audio content company Raedio handles music supervision for the series.
“We are so excited to continue this journey with Shawna and Mia and the incredibly fun world of Rap Sh!t,” said Sarah Aubrey, Head of Original Content at Max, previously.
“With the wonderfully comedic and unique perspectives of Aida Osman, KaMillion, Issa Rae, Syreeta Singleton and the team at HOORAE, season two is sure to bring even more seducing and scheming.”
Issa Rae said: “We’re so happy to play in the world of ‘Rap Sh!t’ for another season with this incredibly talented team.”
Syreeta Singleton added: “This show and cast are one of a kind and I’m thrilled to get to do this again with them. We’re going bigger and harder!”
Rap Sh!t has been praised as “a glossy, entertaining show that prioritizes quick wit and fun” by The Hollywood Reporter and The A.V. Club says “Rae & Co. have created a hilarious and experimental comedy, one that’s propelled by stellar rising talent and authentic, complex stories of Black life.”
The Ringer highlights the “fluid, near-constant use of social media, woven seamlessly throughout eight episodes” and Los Angeles Times claims “Rap Sh!t thrives in the space in between the images we project and who we really are.”
