In 2009, Flynt Flossy along with co-riders Whatchyamacallit, Pretty Raheem, Yung Humma, Slick Mahony and Tummiscratch Beats had dream: Make music that they love and deliver it to the masses. That’s not really a success or failure proposition, nor one that needs validation, but the fact that their video for “Lemme Smang It” has racked up over 10 MILLION hits on Youtube since its release in 2010 might be at least a small indication that this mysterious collective is onto something. Is it ridiculous? Hell yes it is. But it, along with the rest of the songs in the Jeep’s ever expanding catalog are delivered with such skill and conviction that it’s impossible to deny. Laugh if you must, how many artists do you know of who can fearlessly rhyme “smash/bang fusion” with “coochie contusion,” all while busting dance moves that would do the King of Pop proud?
They’ve delivered acclaimed sets at the likes of SXSW and more recently Fun Fun Fun Fest (both in Austin) and tonight it’s our turn DC, as Jeep will at long last roll into town to spread the love (and other things) all over U Street Music Hall. Fans of the Jeep no doubt already have their tickets in hand, but there’s always room for more. So suit up, hop in, and get ready to experience a night of music unlike anything you’ve ever seen before – it’s going to be a wild ride.
Tickets are still available HERE. Come prepared to smash and bang this joint.
