BRILLIANT MOVE by The Jeep to branch out and guest feature on other tracks. not only do we get a mildly amusing hip hop ditty, but F Dot & Humma absolutely MURDER their verses, with Floss in particular addressing issues ppl have with Turquoise Jeep as a group, and also firmly asserting he is in fact NOT Charlie Murphy. the track is apparently an unfinished leak but is short n sweet enuf to be dope. KTJR!
the most recent smanger from the progressively-creative Turquoise Jeep camp is a bit of a family affair, one for the long-time fans who’ve been Keeping The Jeep Ridin’ since jump. the song is, of course, a fucking smash hit. the treat is however seeing the full TJ family on-screen for the first time in a while, marking the re-appearance of once-thought lost member, Slick Mahony. rumours kept running rife about Slick’s whereabouts or why he seemed to be absent from all recent Jeep videos (official & behind the scenes). but here he gloriously re-emerges in true Slick style, and joined by cameos from Whatchyamacallit, Pretty Raheem & Tummiscratch. on top of that we’re treated to undoubtedly one of THEE hawtest video chicks they’ve ever given us, and even more random sullen-looking males to add to the peripheral portion of the Turquoise Jeep universe. check out the inspiration for the song below via F Dot Floss.
and now peep the gloriousness that is WHY I GOTTA WAIT??.
as an added bonus, i’ve taken the liberty of creating my own photo gallery for the vid. as well as a meme-worthy shot of “Nate” that i hope does the rounds on the Internetz. enjoy.
BY SLICK MAHONY, THEY’VE DONE IT AGAIN. this song has been out for a minute, but finally Turquoise Jeep‘s own Pretty Raheem gets to shine in full multi-coloured suit music vid glory, bustin out them Guy/Aaron Hall dance moves (with a lil Kid N’ Play foot-smackin for good measure), complete with a requisite verse from founding father Flynt Flossy. ride that jeep all the way to T. Jeep Street and give it the fuck up for PRETTY.RA.HEEM.
WHO RUN THE WORRRLLLDDDD? TURQUOISE JEEP! co-TJ founder & human elastic-man Flynt Flossy, along with “Lemme Smang It” star Yung Humma, recently caught wind of Beyonce‘s latest music video “Run The World (Girls)”, mostly notabley Bey’s brief inclusion of the “Smang It” dance near the end of it (round the 4:36 mark onwards >>> http://youtu.be/VBmMU_iwe6U). i thought i was the only one who noticed when the vid came out, then a couple days later The Jeep made the following video addressing the subtle big-ups.
and here’s a short comparison vid someone made on YouTube.
and the hits just keep on comin! by now y’all know i champion the unstoppable force known as the Turquoise Jeep Records collective. and with the release of their debut album late last year, we are being rewarded with even more gloriously low-budget (but perfect-fitting) music vids. this time it’s Whatchyamacallit‘s turn to take the spotlight with a searing love ballad that takes the same principles of combining smashing and banging, but turns it up (and on) a notch by mixing “licky” with “sticky”. and i will leave it there to let your dirty dirty minds fill in the blanks (i think there’s an unintended sexual metaphor in there somewhere). and once again, it is of course a Tummiscratch beat (who makes a brief cameo near the end of the vid that borders on being god-like), and features Flynt Flossy with one of his most memorable verses yet. KTJR!
seems the Turquoise Jeep famalam have found another cool avenue to explore and expand The Jeep‘s ever-growing global fanbase. and i been saying on this here blog for a little while now, that the dancing abilities of the Jeep crew are slick as hell and part of the appeal. this aspect was taken to all-new highs by F. Dot Floss (yknow, the one who likes ladies & relations?) with the single/video Did I Mention I Like To Dance, where Flynt showed not only a propensity for comin up with catchy dance moves, but also amazing dexterity & natural talent. to that end, The Jeep are currently working on a full-length dance tutorial video which breaks down all the dances they’ve done in their vids so far. here’s a 3min mini tutorial from the man, the artist & co-founder of Turquoise Jeep Records: Flynt Flossy (baby).
new friend to the Confessions BLAUG, Squareone (and his rather dope Chi-City Blog), recently alerted me to the latest podcast of his own B-Side Radio program, which features none other than The Jeep’s founding fathers in a chill, informative & funny phone chat. wanna put a regular speaking voice to F Dot Floss & Whatchya? ur in luck. click below to download the mp3.
