32 year-old Issa Rae is fresh off the premiere of season two of her hit series, Insecure, and somehow she finds the time to pay homage to some of the greatest female musical legends. In issue No. 2 of HANNAH Magazine, she channeled some of her favorite icons including Nina Simone, Solange Knowles, and Missy Elliot.
Here is the original bold and beautiful Nina Simone on the cover of her thirteenth studio album Silk & Soul
and a digital print
Now have a look at Issa
Here she is giving you Solange tease from her Seat At The Table album
Now take a look at the original Missy ‘misdemeanor’ Elliott. She’s known for her track suits, beat boy vibe, Adidas sneakers, big ’round the way’ hoop earrings and poppin gum.
Did Issa not rock this look and the vibe?
The way Issa channeled Missy even had Missy giving her praises on Twitter
Even though she got to channel some of those amazing women she also got to be her #blackgirlmagic self.
We see you Issa, and we appreciate you.
I’m 30 something reside in Massachusetts and enjoy pop culture.
