Video: The Beatnuts’ Deez Nuts (Off-Broadway Play)


“Watch Out Now”

Jesse sent over some clips from the Beatnuts’ off-Broadway play.

While everyone will most definitely be talking about the last night’s season finale of Entourage (“In My Lifetime” whaaaaa) and of course MTV’s Hottest MCs list (damn they did Em like that…) you wanna know what I’m talking about. The Beatnuts. Yeah motherfucker, the fucking beatnuts.

Jewdon’tknow. I done told y’all, ego trip’s Sacha Jenkins was putting together an off-broadway play on the beloved ’90s group, a la Jim Jones, as part of this year’s Hip-Hop Theater Festival. I was fortunate enough to score some tickets to the show, aptly titled Deez Nuts, and let me tell you…it gets props over here.

A mash-up of skits and live performances, the show was unique, funny and pretty educational. I can’t believe after all these years as a fan I didn’t realize that they were actually part of the Native Tongues (Musta missed this Rob). Or better yet, I had no idea that Psycho Les was that hilarious. Any of y’all know that JuJu has braces? Regardless, my hat goes off to all the folks that put this together.

I spoke to Sacha about the show a while back and he told me one of his goals was to tap into older hip-hop head market— the type that wouldn’t necessarily leave the house to go to S.O.B.s or whatnot for a regular rap show. Job well done. As a bonus I was even able to take my girl to this under the guise that it was a play (she’s a certified Taylor Swift head), and she loved it. So there you have it.

But enough from me, I know what y’all really want is Deez Nuts! I brought the flippity flip in and got some good footage of the guys doing some of their classics, including “Turn It Out,” [view] “Supa Supreme” and “Off The Books [view].”

While it may have been a little strange sitting in your seat while they were performing, The Nuts were good sports, urging the crowd to get off their asses at the end for their grande finale of “Watch out Now.”

    anybody seen that movie last house on the left? man them shyts gave me nighmares…

    —————————

    i saw the remake that came out earlier this year, definitely an envelope pusher when it came to the onscreen violence, haven’t peeped the original or the film ‘virgin spring’ that last house on the left is actually based on

    yeah, more happened that episode than the whole season. Shit was good, too. E psyching Sloan out by getting on the plane was the best. You just know he’s going to fuck it up some how next season.

  14. b-ease Says:

    I still can’t get into Breaking Bad tho. I’ve just seen random parts of this season and I’m always confused by the tone. It seems like a black comedy, but they’re playing it weird. Gotta cop the 1st season DVD.

    yo lofl I fuckin ethered myself with that Sloan and E situation

    earlier in the season, I told my ex girl that our situation was exactly liek the sloan and E situation…how sloan didnt wanna get back with him and finally after a while E said fuck it and was piping down other chicks….I thought I would be havin my ex watchin the show and getting jealous at all the chicks E was fuckin with…

    then…out of the TWO chicks…one was a psycho, and one was a whore. then he wanted sloan back.

    That really worked out for me
