met a fellow artist today who, in my opinion, perfectly captures the authenticity in any role he plays. im so inspired by his work and its an honor to have met this brother. Sterling K. Brown, you da man. Keep shining, even tho you aint take them shades off once today 🤣😎
I remember being 11 years old religiously watching Superbad and Pineapple Express on repeat. Now im out here taking flicks with Bill Hader. I been watching Barry on HBO and lemme tell you, this man is a GENIUS. Thank you so much @variety for putting this together. Much love 💛
serving all the looks today , happy saturday fam 💛
The strongest man in the world. My brother, my inspiration, my teacher. I love you Korey. With all my heart and soul. Our bond and our connection could never be broken and it never will. You spent 14 birthdays in prison. 14 birthdays not getting to blow out your candle and make your wish. Now, Today is the first time you get to celebrate your birthday with the entire world at your corner, cheering you on. They see you now King....... I just got off the phone with him and the first thing he had to say was, "NAW BABE BOY. THIS YO BIRTHDAY TOO. YOU EMBODY ME SO ITS YO BIRTHDAY. WE TWINS BABY BOY"... second i see you on Monday its OVER. We'll hire some security and take over Harlem 🤣👊🏾HAPPY BIRTHDAY KOREY THE KING WISE
i've never been more focused or determined to work so much on myself. I am trying to be the best me I can. And not just for me now, but for ya'll. My family. Drop a comment if you wanna spend more time focused on yourself, and then disconnect from your social media and figure out exactly how you can do it aiigh? Love 💛
I was in the middle of a photo shoot today and suddenly I heard the voice of a Queen from the corner of the studio. I look, and its Niecy Nash peeking her head through the door saying "heeeeeeeyyyy babbbbyyyy". This is like the third time we've randomly bumped into each other during this press run, and every time it makes my entire day. Love you Niec 💛
i hope this feeling i have in my chest never goes away

don't let a day go by where you don't tell your mother you love her. even if it's the only thing you get to say that day
oldie, grainy, and i cant wait for the cold weather again 🥀 p.s. i wont always be so active on instagram/my phone all the time, sincere apologies. Its been a balance of trying to create nonstop and finding those breaks for my own self peace. Ya'll aint fans, your family. Love 💛
empty pool , but still got the drip
im realizing my gram is really only just my face. so that being said, heres another one lol yung 2017 me 🇩🇴
If you know Korey Wise, you'd know that this fit is head to toe something he would wear. Hat gotta match the hoodie which gotta match the vest which gotta match the pants which gotta match the sneakers. Duh. 🤣
looking up, taking all the advice I can from my grandpa. you got me here, gracias papa 💛
i take selfies too. they aint that good but shiat ya boy does try 🤷🏾♂️
When They See Us, 2019. Worldwide on Netflix, in case ya forgot ✨
i was rewatching some of part 4 earlier today, and my God... I have yet to shout out the incredible hair/make up team on the WTSU set. I prolly spent over 100 hours having my hair pulled and feeling my eyes water from having to keep them open. But there wasn't a single second where I didn't enjoy myself. I wish i knew your grams so i can tag ya'll, but ya'll know who you be ❤️
one of the most challenging parts for me was adopting his facial expressions. The King is a man of many faces 🤣
this was just an average photo taken from a make up artist on set one day. then she sent me a version like this. and now this photo is very poetic
currently sick in bed trying to catch up on sleep... pero for now, enjoy a pic of me looking like im straight out of your yearbook 🤣
To be Korey Wise is to wake up everyday wondering how you will survive the day. I took my freedom for granted. And I never will again.
oooh dat boy suave 🇩🇴
this man has been inspiring me since the day I met him in August of last year. nothing, and I mean nothing, is more validating and surreal than seeing him inspire the world now too. bringing his story to the world will go down as one of the most accomplished feelings I could ever hold in my chest. period.
Yeah so this happened this weekend... umm... i just- ya know.. i wanna say that... umm... that i feel- .. ya know. Well what im tryna say is that ... i mean.. Okay never mind im just speechless 😭
blessed beyond blessed man.
inner strength, unbreakable spirit, perseverance, overcoming, love: that's korey wise in a nutshell.
hussle & motivate
welp, things are changing dorothy.. this isn't the Bronx anymore 🇩🇴

mama said to post, and what mama say go ✨
A night I will never forget ~ In the 5th grade, I had to do an art project based on a famous landmark in NYC. I chose the Apollo Theatre in Harlem. 11 years later, I stepped inside for the first time ever. Standing hand in hand with souls like Michael K. Williams, Niecy Nash, and Ava DuVernay. Celebrating and honoring the lives of the five courageous men known as Antron McCray, Raymond Santana, Yusef Salaam, Kevin Richardson, and Korey Wise. In 1989, they were forced out of Harlem and did not return for another 7 to 14 years. 30 years later, they sat inside a packed Apollo Theatre watching actors portray themselves for a major Netflix production. If that isn't full circle for us all, what is? 'When They See Us' debuts worldwide on Netflix in 9 days baby ✨
pulled up w/ my grandpa's swag
looks like we should be playing the super bowl 🤣 #gamefaceaf
