White bears can rap and Big Dipper proves that in his newest video for “Dick Hang Low,” a track from his latest mixtape Thick Life and how can we get a hold of one of those copies? And so what can we say about the DIY vid that looks like it was filmed just down the street of your mom’s neighborhood. Ummm, that it’s awesome. Filmed in Portland, the portly homo-hopper prancersizes down the street with a bag of chips, humps a forsaken mattress and twerks his curvy, beefy body to no end. You may write it off as comedy, but Dipper has some decent flow chops and lyric construction. But don’t let us get in the way. Take a look, pick your jaw up off the ground and then just agree that Big Dipper is hip-hop in a whole new way.

Watch “Dick Hang Low” after the jump.

Waaaaay before there was Miley Virus — oops, we meant Cyrus — there was Big Freedia sissy bouncin’ her way onstage with the most amazing twerk skillz ever. Seriously. Like ever. Save for the Freedia fans who would join onstage for ass-shaking glory. But her story is a fascinating one. She also declares she is the Queen Diva and we’re fine with that.

She’s slowly been making her way up the indie buzz market from small venue tours to the flagship act at mini-music festivals. Now, errbody gets to see what’s behind Big Freedia in a brand new show on Fuse. On Oct. 2, Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce debuts on the network and we got our popcorn stocked up for the watch party as well as our twerk outfits. Don’t worry. They cute.
