Issa Rae Received The Key To Inglewood

Issa Rae Becomes The First Person In 114 Years To Receive The Key To The City Of Inglewood

When it comes to reppin’ the city that raised Issa Rae, she’s always shouting out her hometown of Inglewood! The native made sure she highlighted her city on her show ‘Insecure,’ and for all that she’s accomplished in her career, the city is now highlighting the talented mogul. Every celeb desires to receive a key to their city, and now Issa has hers!

Yesterday during the ‘Taste of Inglewood’ festival, Issa received the key to Inglewood, making her FIRST person in the city’s 114 years of incorporation, according to People. During the event, Mayor James T. Butts presented the key to Issa, who he called “the queen of Inglewood.

In a speech, Issa spoke about receiving the key, stating, “I’m a little emotional, I’m trying to be a thug right now. The mayor really flabbergasted me in that this is the first key in 114 years. It’s a huge honor, and I just want to thank you all so much for your support.” She continued, “Thank you to the mayor, thank you to the city of Inglewood for making it so easy for us to film here, for helping us to showcase this city that I love so much.”

She added, “I have to give love to my grandparents who have lived here, who have lived in Briarwood for a long time and who established my first point of view of Inglewood and love the city themselves; my mom and my sister who live here actively.”

It seems like Issa manifested this moment. If you recall, in episode eight of the fifth season of ‘Insecure,’ Issa received a key from Tyra Banks, who acted as the mayor! Congrats, Issa, keep putting on for “The Wood!”
