Friday Foolishness: Turquoise Jeep Music

I know that my guest blogging time here at Feministe is just about over. And, before I lay one more serious post on y’all, I just had to share something that I absolutely love. Something that keeps me from being too down in the dumps during my period of underemployment. Good people, I present to you Turquoise Jeep Records.

I first found Turquoise Jeep last spring via Twitter, when a friend of mine shared the link to the video for “Wifey Boo.” I didn’t know what to make of it. Was it a parody? Why was Pretty Raheem dancing so hard? And why did Flynt Flossy have such shiny facial hair?

About a week later, I had the distinct pleasure of sitting down to explore the entire Turquoise Jeep catalog via YouTube. I think I watched “Fried or Fertilized” about 10 times in a row. I just couldn’t look away. It seemed so wrong, but so right. The outfits, the songs, the cheesy video effects . . . it was everything I ever want in YouTube silliness!

I tried to spread the gospel about Turquoise Jeep. I followed their Twitter account. I emailed my friends and family, begging them to have a good old fashioned laugh. But nobody was trying to hear me. Not until “Lemme Smang It” hit the interwebs. Before I knew it, I was plowing through a gaggle of Facebook notifications demonstrating my late-to-the-party friends, families and former coworkers. I couldn’t even be mad. I just decided to go with it.

Most recently, Turquoise Jeep has released a video that I feel might be the very best New Jack Swing tribute song ever: Pretty Raheem’s “Can He Move It Like This.” Added bonus: the video is a great take off of Omarion’s “Touch,” but with the loudest Steve Harvey-inspired suits I’ve ever seen in my life. It tickles me so.

Hopefully, y’all can get a kick out of it, too.

    Smash and bang is my favorite combination.

    A friend of mine is convinced he’s going to get Turquoise Jeep to perform at his 30th birthday bash…I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

    My favorite is “Sexy Syrup”

    LISTEN BABY, I’M NOT CRAZY
    YOU AND I SHOULD HAVE A BABY
    NAME HER BISQUICK, BUTTERMILK
    NO OATMEAL, THAT’S OVERKILL

    I have seen them in concert and it was glorious!

    You had me at “New Jack Swing tribute.” I’ll be pulling this up as soon as I can get to a computer that isn’t BLOCKED FOR SEX.

  4. La Lubu says:

    OMG you are so right about those suits! And what the hell is that sitting on Flynt Flossy’s upper lip?

  5. Florence says:

    This is my new favorite thing in the whole world.

    I mean, how DO I like my eggs?

  6. C. A. Brown says:

    I still maintain that fried or fertilized is one of the most horrifyingly brilliant questions of our time. I posit that most feminists would prefer them fried. CHAL-LUNGE!

  7. Kathleen says:

    oh god … why did I watch Fried or Fertilized? how many days is that going to be stuck in my head now? “How you like your eggs?”

    awesome.

  8. Florence says:

    Fynt Flossy is the best. Does anyone else appreciate how committed he is to his dance moves?

  9. Florence says:

    Excuse me, FLYNT Flossy. The man is too amazing to just mess up his name like that.

  10. Sabrina says:

    My friends and I found this last year as well. It indeed helps to put a smile on your face when you are feeling down in the dumps.
