“Down to the ground
Up get loud
Make Mama proud
Wak it out!”
Damn you, Based God. I blame you.
Peep the undiluted ratchetness that is “Wak Wam,” courtesy of white girl rapper Big C. Tagged as “exclusive cooking music,” this video, featuring shots of copious Ciroc and Jäger consumption, random yet clever hip-hop slang references and a totally gratuitous toilet mise-en-scene, is either the height or nadir of hipster irony. In any case, I can’t e’em front—I was amused.
The self-proclaimed Based Goddess is part of a Milwaukee-based crew known as Sipset Young Lions that also includes fellow “icy pigeons” Baby Abs and Ill Lil. According to their Facebook page, the ladies are “based in everything [they] do. [They stay] fancy for no reason (like packets of ketchup).” They’re currently working on their debut mixtape.
