#VibeOfTheWeek: Lil Waterboi – Crazy Rich (feat. Ching)

NobodyAsked presents the first of a weekly showcasing of new singles and albums that we’re currently vibing to which we’ll deem the #VibeOfTheWeek. Up this week is emerging Asian Canadian artist and producer Lil Waterboi. He is an independent artist coming out of Montreal and co-founder of the Bahay Collective, which works to strenghten the creative community throughout the Asian diaspora. On his brand new single “Crazy Rich” he and featured Toronto rapper Ching take on a fire trap instrumental that also has an upbeat East Asian influence that we absolutely love ( big shoutout to the producer!).

The song is catchy as fuck but also aims to defy common stereotypes that all Asian people are a conservetative, quiet and safe monolith. This is a message that we absolutely can get behind although we can’t say the same for pouring lean in boba, I mean that’s just a waste of perfectly good bubble tea.

The music video visuals are amazing and have us missing turn ups pre- covid. Lil Waterboi truly oudid himself with this one! This is truly such a well done nod to The Crazy Rich Asians book by Kevin Kwon and the blockbuster film of the same name. We love the video so much it’s honestly great and super refreshing to see this kind of creativity and originality from a rap video.

Check out “Crazy Rich” now out on all platforms! Keep up with Lil Waterboi on Instagram and find his music on spotify, soundcloud and apple music.
