Rap Sh!t Season 2 Episode 8 Preview: Release Date, Time & Where To Watch

Rap Sh!t Season 2 Episode 7

HBO’s surprise hit show about two estranged friends who come together to form a rap group is back. Season 2 of Rap Sh!t was officially greenlit by the cable network after very positive reviews from critics and a great reception by the viewers. Created by Issa Rae, the show stars Aida Osman and KaMillion in the central roles, both of whom return for the second season.

Expectations are high for the show to continue delivering smooth tunes and compelling drama. As is often said in Miami, “the hustle is never over.” For our two protagonists, their dream of becoming a big thing in the rapping world will continue in the second season. 

The release of Season 2 was pushed back almost four months owing to the strikes by writers and actors. However, now that the SAG-AFTRA strike is officially over, the new season is finally here.

Four seasons in, Season 2 has already bettered the first season in quality of storytelling. Lord AK’s trip isn’t quite what the girls had dreamt of. But their talent cannot remain hidden for long. They’re on the cusp of something big. However, episode 5 brought about a setback for the girls with Lord AK’s brutal actions. The new episode sees them go back to their lives as they recover from the aftershock.

In Episode 7 of Rap Sh!t, Mia and Shawna struggle to find a lead. They haven’t been able to make new music, which is a disappointment. Chastity takes it upon herself to get a breakthrough. She meets with Alex, the A&R rep she met at the Billboard party in Episode 5. Alex is an important person in her company and likes the duo’s music. She even mentions the possibility of signing them on if the team is impressed with their work.

Shawna meets with Francois to sort things out. He reveals that he has been on a retreat since the fire incident and has decided to drop Reina from his catalogue of artists.
