Issa Rae‘s latest web series pieces is a lot of fun. We got to see that when its debut episode featuring singer/songwriter Jazmine Sullivan premiered last month and gave us an unprecedented look into what inspired some of our favorite songs. It also gave us insight into what makes the singer-songwriter tick. Now Issa’s giving us a look into another musical fave’s craft with the latest episode focusing on the one and only Teedra Moses.
If you’ve had the pleasure of seeing Teedra live, then you know she has a few stories to tell and she doesn’t mind sharing. Her candidness makes for a great interview, as she dishes about how her love life inspired her music and drops a few surprising details about some of her classic tracks. In fact, she even spills some little-known tea about her debut Complex Simplicity. That includes how big a role her baby daddy (Ras Kass) played in helping to create the album and how her best-known song “Be Your Girl” had a little something to do with her obsession with a certain Illmatic rapper.
There is, of course, much more where those juicy tidbits where those came from. As with the last episode, you can only watch this one in full if you become a patron of Issa Rae Presents via Patreon. If you’re on the fence about doing so, peep the episode trailer and a performance clip of “Be Your Girl” below to see why this is a must watch.
