#YachtShit the III with my day ones. Thank you so much to everyone who came through ready to drink and dance. And thank you especially to the legendary @miguel for an impromptu performance that made my life. Whew.

Beyond excited for @RobinThede's @ABlackLadySketchShow! It features so many of my favorite people in front of and behind the scenes.

Shouts to the brilliant sketch writers: Robin, Ashley, Holly Walker, @bishilarious, @akilahgreen, @raesanni, and @amberruffin.
Last March, he found and closed my first house. This March, he found and closed my first office building. Both in South L.A., less than 5 minutes from where I grew up. I recommend @milliondollarliving to everyone I love, because you won't get anybody who cares as much as he does. THANK YOU, Ikem for making my dreams a reality. Can't wait to turn this spot into a headquarters with @amprgroup!

#LITTLEMovie comes out tomorrow and I have to shout out this big-brained, beautiful, gem of a girl. I had the pleasure of tagging along on a week-long press tour with Marsai the Mogul and it was so moving to see her shine with all her graceful zest. She makes me so proud and excited for our next generation and I'm so happy that little black girls everywhere have her to aspire to. Shout out to Carol & Josh for raising a real one. Congrats to the youngest Executive Producer in Hollywood history on killing your first movie! ❤
Four years ago, when all I had was a web series and a book, @Essence put me on my first cover with four incredible women I look up to: Ava, Mara, Shonda and Ms. Debbie. It was their "Game Changers" issue and I kept thinking, "I can't believe they chose me." That cover meant so much to me because it validated my work on a platform I respected AND it was a nurturing recognition of promise, a promise that I didn't necessarily see in myself at the time. Four years later -- entering the fourth season of my TV show, and shooting my fourth movie in New York -- they honored me with this solo cover. Thank you, Essence, for helping me to deliver on that promise you saw years ago, and changing the game for me. 📸: @itayshaphoto Hair: @lovingyourhair Face: @joannasimkin Fits: @jasonrembert
