There are so many streaming options available these days, and so many conflicting recommendations, that it’s hard to see through all the crap you could be watching. Each Friday, The Verge’s Cut the Crap column simplifies the choice by sorting through the overwhelming multitude of movies and TV shows on subscription services, and recommending a single perfect thing to watch this weekend.

What to watch

Bad Rap, a 2016 crowdfunded documentary about four Asian-American rappers trying to overcome music industry preconceptions. Shot over the course of a few years, the film deals with the grind of playing small clubs, and gets into how hard it can be to impress agents and record label A&R reps, who often see a Korean or Chinese face and presume a limited market. Bad Rap is provocative and dramatic, as rappers Dumbfoundead, Rekstizzy, and Lyricks end up at career crossroads, making choices that could determine whether they ever break wide. But the biggest reason to revisit this documentary — by director Salima Koroma and producer Jaeki Cho — is the fourth rapper covered: Nora Lum, a musician and comedian better known by her stage name, Awkwafina.
