Whoppa Wit Da Choppa – “Viral”
A message appears on screen during the opening seconds of the music video for Whoppa Wit Da Choppa’s “Viral”: “The following music video consists of Mr. Whop and his friends enjoying some quality time together…” That quality time includes cutting pounds of grass. on a plate with a fork and knife, aggressively raining down the strip club, performing fight rolls in a lounge, and practicing their money draws. Even though it’s obvious that Whoppa Wit Da Choppa is the most ridiculous and funniest rapper in this new wave of rap from Jacksonville, Florida, I keep wondering, “Is that really funny?” His songs pass themselves off as goofy marathons, but they’re almost exclusively heartless diss tracks. “I laced my black Forces slip on your street / I watched your house all night like that TV bitch,” he raps. Yet underlying this joke and the others he tells, there is an unsettling seriousness that can make it hard to laugh.
With artists releasing songs at a breakneck pace, it’s hard for average hip-hop to keep track of everything, no matter how exploited they are. That’s why we created The Ones, a daily post to highlight the song you need to hear.
