Issa Rae’s career is better than ever, as she’s currently filming the third season of her HBO hit series, Insecure. The show creator has always been vocal about her influences, recently paying tribute to four classic Black sitcoms in GQ, including The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, A Different World, Family Matters, and Moesha.
Issa’s take on Moesha caught the eye of Grammy-winning songstress Brandy, who played the lead role on the popular UPN series from 1996-2001.
The R&B songstress sent Rae a sweet message via Twitter, thanking the Los Angeles native for the acknowledgment.
