Yellow Ranger is the debut album of Queens-born rapper Awkwafina, released February 11, 2014. The name is a reference to Trini Kwan from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers who is Asian just like Awkwafina. The album was touted as a feminist track[1] and included previously released songs, such as "NYC Bitche$", "Queef" and "Yellow Ranger". The album was written and co-produced by Awkwafina. She recorded the original version of "My Vag" solely[2] on Garageband.[2][3][4] The track "Mayor Bloomberg (Giant Margarita)" was inspired by the New York soda ban.[5]
