Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter as COUSIN TARIQ
Cousin Tariq is Fatima’s famous musical cousin. He is a proud American Muslim who is not afraid of standing up to ignorance, big and small. He has had to constantly step in to fix Aasif’s missteps and school him on how to find the right balance of country and identity. And, as is typical in sitcom land, he will always show up at the last minute for a bit of celebrity cameo excitement and problem solving.
