What up, Internet?
Jayson Musson is back on YouTube, but not with his well-known “Art Thoughtz” web-series featuring Hennessy Youngman. Instead, we get “The Adventures of Jamel: The Time Traveling B-Boy,” created and written by the artist and directed and edited by Scott Ross. It’s flashy, and has more in common with Chappelle’s Show than Hennessy’s old show. Straight up, it’s a hip-hop comedy with sci-fi and social commentary thrown in the mix. I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s a pilot in the works for any premium cable channel.
Without giving away any spoilers, in the first episode, we’re introduced to:
- An Iraqi baby skull filled with Merlot
- The Illuminati
- A time-traveling janitor
- Mention of anal sex with goats
- Breaking the bonds of slavery with the power of hip-hop
Are we playing Cards Against Humanity? No. This is just Jayson Musson’s new web-world, a world without art. So very populist of you, Musson.
