With songs like "Lemme Smang It," "Treat Me Like a Pirate," and "Fried or Fertilized," hip-hop collective and record label Turquoise Jeep holds nothing back. The group's music is bold, irreverent, and satirical, and the corresponding YouTube videos go viral for their seemingly unintentional comedic value. Turquoise Jeep approaches hip-hop and R&B with a tone that makes the listener question whether something out of the ordinary is really going on. But the blurred line of fake beards, impossible pick-up lines and dead-seriousness while singing "Treat me like a pirate and show me that booty," has won over international fans and boosted Turquoise Jeep videos to over 30 million YouTube views.
Turquoise Jeep performs Monday, April 14, 8 p.m. at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue, Tickets are $12 in advance, $17 at the door, Bugjar.com.
