Watch rapper Doja Cat's bizarre meme-worthy music video for 'Mooo!'
The LA-based rapper even blends in a few references to other popular rap pieces without somehow making it seem gawdy
Over the weekend, LA-based rapper Doja Cat released a video for her track 'Mooo!' and the video is causing quite a stir with its hilarious take on the modern hip-hop landscape.
Produced and shot by Doja Cat herself, the lo-fi video is rife with bovine puns, cow-themed GIFs like 8-bit farms and galloping burgers as Doja Cat sings the chorus "B*tch I'm a cow," a phrase that's quickly going viral on the internet, gathering potential to be the next big internet meme.
Doja Cat sips a milkshake, eats a burger and eventually stuffs a few french fries in her nose, while dropping hilarious lines like "Got milk bitch? Got beef? / Got steak hoe, got cheese / Grade A hoe, not lean (not lean) / Got me A1 sauce please / These heifers got nothin' on me." Part mindless entertainment, and part tongue-in-cheek shot at the current lyricism and themes of the all-too-self-aware hip hop scene, the tune is a refreshingly catchy find in the midst of the barrage of more seriously flavored rap.
“I like to disappoint woke-hip-hop people,” she tweeted as the video began to go viral over the weekend. “I love that the majority of you guys are healthy and normal and then all of the people who don’t like moo are taking their lives and a song I wrote about cows all too seriously, losing hair over it.”
If that was Doja's intention, see seems to have pulled it off with a bizarre sense of grace.
The rapper even blends in a few references to other popular rap pieces without somehow making it seem gawdy. At one point, she effortlessly incorporates Kelis' 'Milkshake' into the verse (how could she not!) and even references Wu-Tang Clan's C.R.E.A.M. (get it?) with the lyrics: "Cash rules everything about me/ Ice cream, ice cream."
The music video has been quickly garnering a wide fan-base. Even Chance the Rapper approved of the new bovine banger, tweeting, "So now im a big doja cat fan," with a fitting cow emoji!
