Daniel Augustin On HBO Max’s Rap Sh!t
The creator of Rap Sh!t shared with The Hollywood Reporter that she conceived the idea for the show while she was still working on Insecure. The new HBO Max show follows two former high school friends who unexpectedly form a rap group.
American actor Daniel Augustin plays the role of Maurice in Rap Sh!t. Maurice is Shawna Clark’s funny co-worker and Shawna (played by Aida Osman) is an ambitious rapper from Miami waiting for her big break.
