Issa Rae details her “uncertain” introduction to adulthood – “We never paid rent for six months” – AfroTech

In this episode, Sanders asked the creator of “Rap Sh! T” as inspiration to introduce the audience to broke Issa. At that time, she noted that it wasn’t until she got to Harlem that she finally realized how broke she was to begin with.

“I was in Harlem, and I had just graduated and gotten a stipend to move to New York. And I thought I was acting. It was a 6,000 stipend. $ and I was living in a slum. I didn’t know I was,” Rae described on the podcast. “This random Jewish guy, who must have been 24, had shown me this apartment, and I was tasked with finding it for another girl I knew at Stanford, a black girl.”
