Queens rapper Awkwafina has titles guaranteed to make the entire Upper East Side cringe. With songs like “My Vag,” “Yellow Ranger,” “NYC Bitche$” and “Queef,” she tackles sexuality, race and negative stereotypes.
She’s still relatively unknown, but not for long. Her music videos have big numbers on YouTube both because they’re badass and because they’re hilarious. Her satire is like the X-rated version of The Daily Show, and you’ll find yourself laughing and memorizing the lyrics all in one go. Her first album dropped this month, and with a slew of live performances lined up, Awkwafina is on the verge of hitting it big.
