Rapper and comedian collaborate for a NSFW anthem in celebration of womanhood and AAPI Heritage Month.
Hold up. May ain't done yet. Margaret Cho and Awkwafina have got something fierce for your ass in celebration of womanhood and AAPI Heritage Month. The veteran comedian and new-school rapper have joined forces to drop this wicked fun, be-all-you-wanna-be, stereotype-flippin' rap track and music video, "Green Tea."
Check it out. NSFW, people:
Hell yes. This feels like a collaboration that was inevitable.
Margaret Cho and Awkwafina are the perfect ambassadors to create this tongue-and-cheek take on traditional stereotypes. Awkwafina, née Nora Lum, says it's an anthem for young women of color "to embrace their quirkiness, their sexuality, their inner-child and their creativity with passion."
Can you imagine how much fun it must have been to see these two asskickers collaborate? "It was incredibly natural and easy," Margaret says. "As if the song had been already written and we were just channeling it! Awkwafina is the future!"
Awkwafina also called the opportunity to work with Cho, one of her heroes, a "dream come true."
"I remember watching Margaret Cho with my grandmother on TV," Awkafina recalls. "She was my hero, not only because she was funny, but because she showed me that it's okay to be yourself, that it's okay to be a brash yellow girl, and to be a strong and brave woman."
"I love Margaret, and I hope some young girl -- but not too young -- watches this video and it inspires them somehow."
