Aida Osman may be just beginning her acting career, but she’s no stranger to the entertainment world. The Nebraska native stars in Issa Rae’s “Rap Sh!t” as Shawna – one half of the show’s central rap duo and a character she helped create specifically for herself. Before her TV debut, Osman started out as a writer on Netflix’s “Big Mouth” and HBO’s “Betty,” also serving as a cohost on the “Keep It!” podcast. However, Osman’s gig on her HBO Max show isn’t her first time flexing her creativity.

After graduating from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2018, Osman built a following on Twitter a year later from a funny viral video of her rapping about . . . err, pegging. From there, her career took off as she booked her “Big Mouth” job almost immediately after, per Vanity Fair.

Fast forward a few years, and Osman has made a huge splash in the hip-hop-inspired “Rap Sh!t,” which returns on Nov. 9 for its second season. Keep reading to learn more about the comedy writer turned actor.
