ATL rap duo Migos’ latest hit “Bad and Boujee” has all but taken over the world since it was released in October of 2016. Now, a young Black entrepreneur is bringing the catchy song title to life with a collection of unique coffee mugs.
Featuring iconic female characters from some of the many Black television shows that shaped our childhoods, the “Bad and Boujee” coffee mug line from Vanessa Rae Wells is a perfect way to celebrate Black history this month and all year round.

Company Founder and Creator Vanessa Wells says paying homage to some of the original “Bad & Boujees” was only right. “I always try to uplift Black people especially women, in any way possible,” Wells tells ESSENCE. “My artistry seems to bring joy to people and I will continue to do that until I can’t create anymore.”
Characters featured in the line include Claire Huxtable from The Cosby Show, Whitley Gilbert from A Different World, Hillary Banks from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Lisa Turtle from Saved by The Bell, among others. Wells is no stranger to celebrating Black culture in the most creative of ways through her designs so, the decision to shine the spotlight on a handful of the ladies who helped bring Black Girl Magic to television was a no brainer.
“Who doesn’t love being reminded of our favorite Black actresses,” Wells added. “And mixed with Migos?! The combination is pure Black gold!” For more information on the Bad & Boujee mugs, including how to order, you can visit the website HERE.
