Photos: A Day in the Life of Awkwafina

Awkwafina is one of the few artists who qualifies as a quadruple-threat, netting massive buzz for acting, writing, rapping and hosting her hilarious conversation show, Tawk. The Queens native has created some of Paste’s favorite NSFW diss tracks while also showing us where to go and avoid in NYC. (No really, she calls Union Square a “Mecca for freaky, unnecessary people,” which is so accurate it hurts.) In summer 2018, she’ll star as Constance in Ocean’s Eight alongside Rihanna, Mindy Kaling and Cate Blanchett, pulling off epic heists while (probably) saying mean things to Matt Damon. In that maelstrom of a schedule, Awkwafina took an afternoon to hang with Paste photographer Cortney Armitage, trying on boutique clothing and hanging at Williamsburg waterfront parks.
