Jayson Musson’s New Web Series: No Art, Just Hip-Hop and Comedy

by Corinna Kirsch on January 20, 2015

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.
