Could Issa Rae be the solution to “The Barbz,” “Bardi Gang,” and “Hotties” uniting in the name of rap?

The Rap Sh!t creator has proposed the idea of Nicki Minaj, Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion making cameo appearances on the aforementioned HBOMax show, which would in return bring their fan bases together.

As Season 2 of the hit show recently wrapped, Rae recently spoke with ET about future guest appearance hopes for the series.

“There’s a list,” she said. “I mean, we want [Megan The Stallion]. We want Cardi [B]. Nicki [Minaj] would be a nice little tie-around. If we could unite them — maybe in season three — we can unite the fan bases.”

The 38-year-old creative has always been vocal about her love of female rappers, as she’s openly supported Thee Stallion, Minaj and more. Rap Sh!t is inspired by all women rappers of today, according to a past interview with Rae.

In February 2021, it was reported that City Girls’ rappers Yung Miami and JT were recruited to Rae’s series as executive producers. The reports also garnered rumors that Rap Sh!t’s storyline was based on the Miami duo — as the series follows two high school girls who are also aspiring rappers from the 305.

However, Rae clarified with EBONY magazine that several female rappers were used as inspiration behind the show.

“It’s really a commentary on a lot of female rappers during that time,” Rae told the publication. “I think because it’s set in Miami, people are like, ‘Oh, it’s the City Girls’ story.’ But the City Girls actually exist in the Rap Sh*t world. It’s Cardi’s story. It’s Megan’s story. It’s Azealia’s story. I was just influenced by so much of what it is to be a female rapper in today’s time.”

Rap Sh!t returns to the small screen Nov. 9, after originally being scheduled to premiere in August. The delay came as a result of the Writers Guild of America (WGA) strike and the ongoing Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) protest.

As for what’s to come, showrunner Syreeta Singleton stated to Complex, “Everything is heightened. The girls are on tour, tensions are high, and they’re quickly finding out how much they’re willing to compromise for success.”
