Besides being the rapper behind the viral hits “Did I Mention I Like to Dance” and “Treat Me Like a Pirate,” Flynt Flossy is also head of the strange, fun, and mysterious Turquoise Jeep record label/collective. Flossy claims the TJ crew were born on the Internet and not based in any geographic location, but he does admit that he launched the label with R&B singer Whatchyamacallit. Flynt kicked things off in 2009 with an upload of his party rap song “Stretchy Pants,” while the beginning of 2010 saw Whatchyamacallit and Flynt join TJ artist Yung Humma on his massive viral hit “Fried or Fertilized.” That same year saw the trio come together for another viral Humma hit, “Lemme Smang It.” Both tracks landed on that year’s Turquoise Jeep compilation Keep the Jeep Ridin’, which also featured Flynt’s electro-dance number “Did I Mention I Like to Dance.” Considered more Lonely Island than Odd Future at this point, Flossy and Humma “went legit” in late 2012 when they joined Childish Gambino for the single “F*ck Your Blog.” A year later, Flynt would release another solo single, the party rap track “Treat Me Like a Pirate” (“and gimme that booty”).
If you’ve recently heard your friends singing “Lemme Smang It” or “Sex Syrup” and looked at them with a vague, clueless stare, we got you. They’re talking about Turquoise Jeep, the hip-hop and R&B crew/record label whose genius low-budget videos and sex-filled rhymes have already made them cult heroes. Turquoise Jeep, comprised of MCs Yung Humma, Flynt Flossy, Slick Mahony and Pretty Raheem and producers Tummiscratch and Whatchyamcallit, released their debut album Keep the Jeep Ridin’ last December and “Lemme Smang It,” the first single, has already amassed nearly 3 million views on YouTube. Their off-brand satirical tracks have inspired legions of fans, recent TV placements and even an opening slot for Outkast MC Big Boi. Undeniable and irresistibly good music cannot be ignored and therefore, Turquoise Jeep is great for licensing purposes!
