Here's Why Drake Is 'Zaddy,' According To Issa Rae

The actress can't stop drooling over Drizzy.

Published January 9, 2018

Issa Rae may have just found her a new bae at the Golden Globes after-party. While partying with some of the hottest celebrities in the industry sounds like a great way to spend a weekend, the Insecure actress’ entries night was made after she saw one star in particular.

The actress chronicled her entire party experience on social media. Apparently, the shindig went from great to even better when she ran into Drake, who was DJ-ing a set for the night. Excited to see him at the DJ booth, she recorded him doing his thing, while spinning Wizkid’s track “Daddy Yo.” “Zaddy,” Issa was overheard yelling at Drizzy, along with another unidentified woman. 

Following the glorious night, Issa elaborated on her feelings for Drake’s DJ skills in a video on Snapchat. “I was at a party with Drake and I should say that he is phenomenal DJ,” she said while lounging in her bonnet. “Played all the correct tracks. The playlist was simply correct.

OK, it doesn’t look like Drake and Issa Rae made a romantic connection at the after-party, but it’s no surprise that she’s a fan of the “Passionfruit” rapper. In a past interview with Rolling Stone in 2016, Issa once said that they tried to put a Drake lyric in every episode of Insecure’s first season.

Unfortunately, neither Issa nor her HBOI series took a Golden Globe home. But at least she got to see Drake in action on the booth.
