TRASHY THURSDAY IS BACK! – The Big Tymers

WHAT’S UP FRESH? IT’S OUR TURN BABY!

Trashy Thursday is back, snitches! It’s been far too long since the dulcet tones of hoodboogers have populated this blog.  But how exactly do we come back??

bigtymers

Now by the time we were blessed with this duo, Cash Money has been around for a while. But like a bat out of hell, Still Fly came through and stormed the charts gaining the duo MTV-Level fame with the catchy hook and hilarious subject matter.  So let’s take a step back and just deep dive in the anthems.

This Is How We Do is perfect.  Mannie Fresh truly was the best part of Cash Money.  His productions are why so many of their jams were so catchy.  This song has his fingerprints all over it.  Baby might as well be a feature rapper in it.

Now Stun’n is actually their first single as a duo.

The sheer difference between the sound here between the first two songs we listened to is a clear example of late 90’s Dirty South rap and the early 2000’s rap that was played on the top 40 stations. It’s not just the money difference.  It’s a range in style and polish. It’s in the griminess of Stun’n juxtaposed with the slickness and pleasant beats of This Is How We Do.  But you can go to Complex to get a true historical point-of-view on rap and hip hop.

I.

FUCK.

THESE.

HOES.

AFTER.

OUR.

SHOOOOOOW!

Listen, I just had a pure dance break to this.  Also, how many people punched themselves in the face getting their roll on?  I was actually driving home to NC from Boston for my vacation when this song came on the radio.  I, of course, started to jam and dance.  Luckily, there was no damage to my car or the Chikfila drive-thru.

Let’s go back to an earlier jam.

EVERYTHING I TELL YOU! If you aren’t pursing your lips and shoulder bopping, you’re not listening to it correctly.

YES YES YES YES YES! The Cribs parody. The cornrows.

So this is my absolute favorite Big Tymers song of all time.  OF ALL TIME!!! It just makes me smile so hard.  The special effects!

Story Time! So young Trash actually attended a Big Tymers concert back in the day.  It was pretty much the greatest thing to ever happen. During Oh Yeah!, there was a giant diamond set piece.  During the breakdown, the top opened and what had to be 100 hoochies dressed in metallic swimwear poured out to dance around the stage for the next few songs.  It was SO SO SO GOOD!!!! Y’all the early 2000’s were a glorious time.  I only paid $5 for my ticket.

To close this out, turn your hymnals to Page 55, Bling Bling.

I know I left out some brilliant tracks. 10 Wayz and Fuck You are other favorites.  What are yours? Share your favorite memories of Baby and Mannie Fresh.

The Return of Trashy Thursday

Two posts in two days! It’s almost as if someone runs this blog again.

Today it’s time for another Trashy Thursday where we discuss some of my favorite tunes for the basic.  Let’s get started.

Gigolo – Nick Cannon f. R. Kelly

On the suggestion of Sass, we thought that we should bow down and pay homage to the King of Corny, Nick Cannon.  While he is mostly the worst, he has created some hilarious moments a la this song. Also, if Amber Rose gets with him, I’d be shocked.  Mariah would cut someone.

Sally Got a One Track Mind – Diamond D & The Psychotic Neurotics

Now this is another fantastic Sass suggestion.  This is a little more serious than our normal Trashy Thursday fare, but it’s real life.  Sally is a nasty girl out here doing a lot with her life.  Is that you??

Bloop

Blowjob Betty – Too $hort

Speaking of nasty girls, here’s Too $hort’s version of that song.  It’s more ignorant than the cautionary tale above, but just as real.

Whistle While You Twerk – Ying Yang Twins

What the world needs now is a Ying Yang Twins reunion and a resurgence of crunk.  Now excuse me while I bop around my house.

icekingtwerk

Yasss Bitch – Nicki Minaj

Now I’m not the biggest fan on Nicholas. We know this.  But re-purposing one of my favorite Vines ever??  That’s how it’s done.  Click here for the original Vine.

So that’s it.  Sorry it’s a short one, but you’ll be fine.  I’ll end it with my favorite new Vine.

Like who didn’t do this in high school when you had off-campus lunch?? Byeeeee!

Your New Favorite Rapper: MoonRock

Theyre-back

You may remember the slayage that was my Turquoise Jeep mega-post. You didn’t read it?  Don’t fret, click right here and get caught up!

humma

But they’ve just released a new track so that you can get Fancy out of your head!  Come through MoonRock!

Get into her Bar Wench Halloween Costume!

Get into her burly, yes somewhat homely eye candy!

Get into the flawless video editing and green screen effects!

Get into the frog with the moving lips!

But seriously, the thing about Turquoise Jeep is that underneath all of their hilarious antics and ridiculous imagery, there’s a solid understanding of rap and song construction.  Wait, before you run away, listen to me.  Almost every song they have is at least an earworm, if not incredibly catchy and listenable.  The flows are on beat, the syncopation is works, and while there is some corny cleverness, it’s never annoying.  It’s always purposeful.

MoonRock is a great addition and I look forward to her and Slick Mahony’s cover of Whatchu Like.

Iconic.

Trashy Thursday: Mexican Rappers

What time is it? It’s Trashy Time!

What time is it? Trashy Thursday time!

So we’ve been neglecting that some of the greatest and most hilarious hoodrat tunes come from our friends down south!  I have to rectify this as we can not live in a world where you are not leaning like a cholo.

1) Lean Like  A Cholo – Down AKA Kilo

Elbows up, side to side!

Now this song was a hit for several reasons.  We were all about leaning in the last decade.  We leaned back and we leaned and rocked with it.  Down AKA Kilo capitalized on that trend with his iconic bop.  He gives you the dance moves, reminds of you Big Pun if you squint and don’t listen to his rapping.  He is pretty much perfect.

2) Cyclone – Baby Bash

Now, who remembers the Baby and the Bash??  His first hit was “Suga Suga” but I absolutely hate that song with all that is within me.  Pretty much any song with him and Frankie J was a flop for me.  But then he hooked up with human voicebox T-Pain and created something that we can all bodyroll to!

3) Bring Out The Freak In You – L’il Rob

Another song that I found via B.Scott back in the days where he was still battling with his Ethiopian neighbors.  I love this song. It’s complete filth and makes no bones about it.  L’il Rob is trying to get it in and we just have to deal!  He’s probably my favorite of all the rappers on this list.  He even has a pleasant love song to counteract the trashy goodness of this one.

4) I’m In Love With Your Sister – Chingo Bling

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaass!!! While this is a parody of I’m In Love With A Stripper by the legendary T-Pain, it still stands as a hilarious and trashy piece of music.

5) Bass Down Low – Dev

YES! So I didn’t know Dev was Mexican, but now that I do, it’s time to pay homage.  I remember jamming to Booty Bounce while Dev stood around in an array of hideous outfits.  I remember being pissed that “Like A G6” was a hit because I liked the original song better.

But this is my jiggety jam!  It’s such a simple, dumb song, but I can’t resist bopping to it.

So who are some of your favorite Mexican or Mexican-American rappers?? Did I miss any iconic bops?  Let us know in the comments!

Trashy Thursday: The Hoodrat Tunes of Youtube, Part 2

It’s Thursday, Thursday.  Getting Trashy on Thuuuursday!!

fun

 

So I hope that you all are having a great day.

It’s time to take another deep dive into my YouTube favorites for hilarious musical delights.  See Part 1 here.

1) Donk In The Trunk – Mowett Ryder

Listen.  I’m going to tell you right now that I bopped to this one.

“Stop drop drop, pick it up then drop it!”

Mowett definitely has some good friends because while it looks okay, is definitely a budget version of Lady’s Yankin video.  Her booty shots are questionable but you can tell her hips don’t lie.  Also, the scene where the two men release her from the trunk so she can twerk has me dying.

AND THEN!!!! She slides a credit card down the crack of one of her video dancers.  BUT SHE PICKS THE ONE WITH THE FLATTEST OF ASSES.

beylaugh

She does the rest of the girls but I am dying.

AND THEN, we see a girl on a handstand popping it for one of the trunk negros and he proceeds to make it drizzle on her with about $4.

I. CAN. NOT!

2) Cupcakin’ – J. Nash and J-Stalin

Let’s slow it down for all the ladies out there.

We’re back to flip phone production levels here.

On Sunday, we can go to chuuuuurch! ::jump cut to him standing outside of a chruch::

So romantic y’all.  The shoulder rolls.  The ashy lips.  The harmonies.  The Casio keyboard background.

He continues through the days of the week in the second verse.

WHEN HE BODYROLLS IN FRONT OF THE WATERFALL!!!!

Is that a green screen J. Nash???  This poor girl looks so sad that she is in this video.  That blazer with the popped collar.

ashton-kutcher-laughing

And then J-Stalin is here.  Umm, what is this verse?  What just happened??

This is amazing.

3) Queen of The Lesbians 

Now I wouldn’t be doing my job if I didn’t tell you that this is a remake of the Queen of Vagina.  Majela will get her own post because there’s just so much to talk about.

Seriously, one of the greatest to ever do it.  This girl is so serious.  I can’t even comment, I’m just going to leave the lyrics to the four verses of this masterpiece.

Girls come and see my vagina, ohhh.
Girls come and see my vagina, ehhh.
Girls come and see my bum,
Girls come and see my bum,
Girls come and see my vagina, ohhh.

I am queen of the lesbians,
Queen of the lesi-lesbians,
Lesbians.  Lesbians.
I am queen of the lesbians.

Girls come and see my vagina, ohhh.
Girls come and see my vagina, ehhh.
Girls come and see my bum,
Girls come and see my bum,
Girls come and see my vagina, ohhh.

Women, they love me.
I use them to have sex. Oh.
Women, they love me,
I use them to have sex.

I love women.
I love them.
I love them. I love them. Oh.
I love women.
I love them.
I love them. I love them. Oh.
I love women.
I love them.
I love them. I love them. Oh.

4) Ting Ting – J-Menace

YES YES YES YES!

Now those of us of a certain age group will fondly (or not so fondly) remember BET Uncut.  This was where BET showed their trashiest, most low budget hoodrat tunes.  Essentially, if a video was filmed in a strip club, it would appear here.  I got so many classic jams from this show.

SHAAAAAAAAKE that ting ting! 

The grammar.  The forced rhymes.  The off beat body rolls.  I just can not take it.

My personal favorite line: “The way that ting ting.  Shift.  Sides.”
