On the heels of the latest debate, a new political parody rap is gaining a lot of attention, garnering over a million views on Facebook in a few days, called “DUMP DRUMPF.” Watch the video here.
Indie hip-hop artist Jensen Reed and comedian/actor Ben Giroux got together for this comical parody video to trash Donald Trump.
Going off a riff on the 90’s classic “Jump” by Kriss Kross.
Jensen Reed and Ben Giroux teamed up again to deliver a fierce attack against Donald Trump with their new satirical lyrics.
“Ignorance will make ya DUMP DRUMPF!
“Bigotry will make ya DUMP DRUMPF!
“Tiny hands will make ya DUMP DRUMPF!”
Jensen Reed shared that the two had created the video as a way to reach younger voters and encourage them not to vote for Donald Trump.
“I couldn’t think of a better way to reach out to young voters and help stop the maniac Donald Trump from becoming President than create a parody of one of the classic hip-hop songs from the 90’s!”
The second presidential debate got off to a heated start, as the two candidates began the night by not shaking each other’s hands, and ended with Trump declaring that Hillary Clinton should be imprisoned.
A parody account for Donald “Drumpf” has already been created.
Trump managed to play off the scandalous tape recording, which was uncovered earlier this week from 2005, was just “locker room talk.”
Prior to their recent Trump parody video, Reed and Giroux have collaborated on the widely popular comedy rap “Little Dude Anthem,” which quickly racked up over a million views on Facebook.
The duo spent months writing the original hip-hop song and composing the track. The idea came out of Giroux’s stand-up comedy act. The pair brought in American Idol star Tamyra Gray to sing the rhythmic choruses.
Jensen Reed currently has an album out called The Left Coast, he collaborates with YouTube star Taryn Southern, and stars in his own ridiculous music videos, including the N.W.A. parody “Straight Out Da Office.”
His songs have been featured in numerous television shows, including CSI: NY, Showtime’s House Of Lies, Friday Night Lights and several MTV and VH1 shows, as well as the Oscar-nominated Woody Harrelson film The Messenger and director Mark Pellington’s I Melt With You.
