The Insecure Mixtape: Music from HBO’s Original Series Insecure

I remember when the announcement of Issa Rae’s Insecure for HBO hit the interwebs. Everything inside me went bananas. Then it came out. Season 1 of Insecure is everything this Black girl’s heart was waiting for in television. Drama, love, sex, friendships, situationships. Hashtag all dat shit. What I wasn’t ready for was the soundtrack. This soundtrack is clutch AF.
