Watch: Awkwafina - “NYC Bitche$” — 11 badass Asian musicians shattering stereotypes about Asian music
Queens rapper Awkwafina has titles guaranteed to make the entire Upper East Side cringe. With songs like “My Vag,” “Yellow Ranger,” “NYC Bitche$” 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.
judging from all the response, i think i only got one thing right from my shameless posts, my guessing of Ian and Mickey.
glad that some of you enjoy the post, hope i didn’t insult or ruin anything from the shameless fandom, most of my friends are real fans of the show and everything i know is of their tweets and reblogs.

SHAMELESS US: What I do know about the show without watching the show by Mei Lee
OK…so we did it. It’s happening. Hank Green and the Perfect Strangers…our first album. It’s a thing, it’s happening now. It’s available for pre-order in both clean and explicit versions and it will ship in the beginning of May (hopefully end of April, but I’m padding the estimates.) Every pre-order will be signed…so you’ve got two weeks!
The clean version, btw, doesn’t just have bleeped lyrics, it’s entirely kid friendly. Example, the line “Put a light bulb up in my ass” in “I’d Rather” is changed to “Swallow an entire live bass.”
14 tracks, some songs you’ve heard, some you haven’t. It’s a six panel digipack with a 12 page booklet…all the lyrics included.
I cobbled The Perfect Strangers together by asking some of my most talented friends if they would be in my band. It was a crap shoot, but Andrew Huang, Joe DeGeorge, and Rob Scallon all signed on and lent their amazing talents to this project. We will be playing our very first live show at VidCon, and then we’ll be going on a short tour…with some AMAZING guests…but if you’re not in the western US you will, unfortunately, be out of luck for that particular tour.
so i’ve been on a pattern making frenzy, they’re really fun and addicting to make when you know how to.
made this chilli pattern today, can you imagine making this an actual textile and having people make them into shirts? chilli patterned shirts, hopefully it’ll be an actual thing someday.
