Video: Best Brooklyn Band Name… Ever! Hand Job Academy

HJA

Beats the hell outta “The Strokes,” eh? “Mind-blowingly random” tribute to the not-so-random Lena Dunham.

By Blurt Staff

Brooklyn rap trio Hand Job Academy just dropped a new video for their track “Lena Dunham” with one of our fave mags, Bitch Magazine check it out here, or below. It’s a colorful, mind-blowingly random carnival of circus imagery and colors, featuring badass female performers doing whatever they damn please.

From Clara Bizna$$: “I had the line ‘Academy, steady cummin on your punim. Finna let it all hang out: Lena Dunham.’ in another song that never got recorded. Meg said ‘Lena Dunham’ in the studio in a funny voice, and it became the chorus of a new song. There is no effect on her voice!”

Some background: “Controversial, outspoken, nasty-but-charming, the Academy raps about periods, pop culture, and queerness as well as traditional hip-hop themes of f***g bitches, getting money, and superiority over enemies. Straddling the worlds of comedy and hip-hop, H.J.A. have shared stages with the likes of Big Dipper, Nicky Da B, and Cakes Da Killa, as well as opened for Sasheer Zamata, Janeane Garofalo and Kristen Schaal and multiple appearances on the cult public access TV program, The Chris Gethard Show.”

Well, all right then! Fucking bitches…
