Insecure’s Issa Rae continued her collaboration with HBO on the Max comedy Rap Sh!t, but their latest partnership was short-lived. The second season of the hip-hop-themed series ended its run last month, and it will serve as the show’s final chapter.

Rap Sh!t centered on estranged high school friends from Miami, Shawna (Aida Osman) and Mia (KaMillion), who reunite with one goal in mind, forming their own rap group and doing everything in their power to take the competitive world of hip-hop by storm.

A Max spokesperson described Rap Sh!t as “a one-of-a-kind comedy with compelling social commentary” and thanked everyone who made it happen.

“A huge thank-you to Issa, showrunner Syreeta Singleton and the teams at Hoorae and 3 Arts Entertainment for introducing us to Shawna and Mia, a duo whose journey fans have been invested in and who they have continued to root for through everything,” reads Max’s statement.

Rap Sh!t marked Issa Rae’s first series following the ending of her hit HBO comedy Insecure, and she executive produced it alongside hip-hop duo Yung Miami and JT of City Girls, whose journey served as an inspiration for this series. Jonica Booth, RJ Cyler, and Daniel Augustin starred in both seasons alongside Osman and KaMillion.
