Trashy Thursday: A Tribute to Turquoise Jeep

So my earlier post was a little angry.  Let’s lighten the mood with some cartoon rappers!

Yaaaaass bitch Yaaaaass! ::Soulja Boy voice::

So according to Wikipedia, Turquoise Jeep is a real independent label founded by Flynt Flossy (Charlie Murphy lookalike) and Whatchyamacallit (the one with the majestic beard in the back row).  I’m going to be honest, I’ve been riding with the Jeep for years thanks to my cousin, but had no idea whether it was a parody or real life.  They also have a song with Childish Gambino! #famous All I know is that they jam and and I live for it.

So let’s go member by member and talk about my favorite of their anthems.

Yung Humma – Lemme Smang It

humma

This is the usually how people get their first introduction into the flawless music of the Jeep.  Yung Humma is a rapper with a signature hum (obviously) and is widely known for his luxurious locks.

Just the lyrics, the dance moves, the bored look of the lead light skinned girl.  It’s all so perfect.  Don’t even try to pretend that you didn’t bop and do the dance with him.

Flynt Flossy’s verse is also amazing.  Like actually hilarious.  And his dance moves!!

Get into it!

Flynt Flossy – Ooh Aah Sound

Let’s slow it down and get romanticals with Flynt. It was a close race between this and Naughty Farmer but I stan down for Pretty Raheem so here we are!

Get into his green screen. Get into the high art painting of Flynt.  I actually can’t!

Just yes.  So much yes.

Pretty Raheem – Can He Move It Like This

Listen.  I could write a whole post on this glory alone.  I love this song so so so so much.  From the technicolor suits

to the Kid & Play tribute

It’s all so so so so good.

To be serious though, this is a song that actually could have gotten radio play in the 90’s.  Pretty Raheem has a “good” voice and Flynt Flossy is at his most marketable here.  Just body roll and get into it!

Slick Mahony – Sex Syrup

Now while I stan down for Pretty Raheem, my favorite member of the group is Slick Mahoney.  Like he legit makes me so happy.  Wait, here’s some gifs…

Flawless man is flawless.

I think it’s because the rest of the group has redeemable qualities.  Pretty Raheem is not a bad singer, Humma and Flynt pull out some clever rhymes here.  Slick Mahony is the epitome of delightful.  He’s not the best singer, he’s no the best dancer and he’s dressed like an 80’s lounge lizard.  I am obsessed with him.

Sex Syrup has long been a favorite of mine.  We know that Turquoise Jeep loves breakfast food and sex and this is just another fantastic jam.  We also get another feature from Yung Humma and his remy! When the girl dances on the stack of pancakes, I lose it every time.

Like that is the most delightful thing ever.  EVER!

 Whatchyamacallit – Licky Sticky

So Whatchyamacallit is the Lyfe Jennings/Nate Dogg of the group doing a lot of hook singing.  But he got his shine on Licky Sticky and we got this body rolling anthem!

I’m not convinced that he and Flynt Flossy aren’t brothers.  Or at least cousins.  And this is another song where there isn’t as much humor.  Like imagine yourself in a dark cluh.  You grainin on dat wood with your boo thing for the night.  If this came on, don’t act like you wouldn’t be feeling some type of way!!!

Go head boo!

Whatchya – Taste You Like Yogurt

Y’all.  I just discovered this today.  Y’all.  They are amazing.

So to show that Turquoise Jeep is nothing but on top of the trends, here’s something for your EDM fans!

Like y’all.  I don’t even have any commentary.  You just have to watch.  The German…and the effects… My mind is blown.  I’m unable.

I have nothing.  What’s your favorite Turquoise Jeep jams??  Did I miss your favorites??  Share with us!
