Issa Rae‘s Raedio Record label has signed with The Read podcast to offer a comedy album.
According to Paper, Rae will serve as executive producer of the project from podcast hosts Kid Fury and Crissle, along with Raedio President Benoni Tagoe, and Alex Rago.
“I have been a fan of Crissle and Kid Fury for almost a decade now and The Read has been my weekly comfort food,” Rae tells Paper. “I can’t wait for everyone to experience their brilliant comedic commentary in such a specially curated, timeless format.”
Kid Fury and Crissle are excited for fans to continue enjoying their uniquely, funny commentary within “new territory.”
“Working with Benoni, Issa and the Raedio team was a natural decision because we have been immense mutual supporters for our entire digital careers,” said The Read hosts. “A comedy album is new territory for us, but Raedio has been instrumental in helping us develop the vision for this project, and collaborating with them has been exciting and such a joy. We’re excited to break new ground and give our fans new ways to tune in and engage with us.”
On The Read podcast, Kid Fury and Crissle cover “hip hop and pop culture’s most trying stars” while “throwing shade and spilling tea with a flippant and humorous attitude,” according to their website, ThisIsTheRead.com. “No star is safe from Fury and Crissle unless their name is Beyoncé.”
