Cymple Man Premieres “Blue Jeanie” Video Exclusive With Rock ‘N’ Load

Cymple Man Premieres “Blue Jeanie” Video Exclusive With Rock ‘N’ Load

Georgia based country rapper, Cymple Man, has released his new single and music video for “Blue Jeanie” online. The song is the latest single from Cymple Man’s upcoming new album “Been It” set to release August 6th via Dirt Rock Empire. The video was directed by Breadwin Deville and showcases Cymple Man’s wordplay, cadence mixed with his storytelling, as he parodies a redneck version of Aladdin. 
 
“I think my fans understand the range and styles that I am capable of. Anyone that is a fan of the comical/fun side of my music with songs like ‘White Trash Fresh’ and ‘Ricky Bobby’ will dig ‘Blue Jeanie’,” said Cymple Man. “I like to have fun and make goofy videos, and in this one we went completely over the top. We painted Cap in full blue body paint to play the Jeanie and it turned out hilarious.”
 
“Been It” is the follow-up to Cymple Man’s 2018 debut solo album “Higgs Field” and spotlights his unique rhyming ability and wordplay as he graduates from the school of hip-hop. Joining Cymple Man on his journey into the rap mythos are fellow Dirt Rock brethren The Lacs, Hard Target, Dusty Leigh and Overtime. The production for the album was completed by Wess Nyle. 
 
“I would put this project up against anyone else in the history of Country Rap and I stand by it as a solid Hip Hop album. It may not be Nas’s ‘Illmatic’, or Dr. Dre’s ‘Chronic’, but it’s some of my best work and I’ll put it up line for line, bar for bar against anybody,” added Cymple Man. “If anyone out there appreciates the art of wordplay, cadence, storytelling and just real rap in general then this one’s for you. I don’t care if you’re a Country Rap fan, a Juggalo, or just a hip-hop head; there is something for everybody.”
 
Born and raised in small Pierce County, GA; Dustin “Dusty” Bennett (his last name inspiring the album title) adopted the moniker of Cymple Man because he is a man of the people. His music is the soundtrack of regular 9-5 blue collar workers who want to crack a cold one and let loose after a long hard day. In the early 2000’s, Cymple Man had a dream come true when he worked in the same Atlanta studio that Outkast had recorded in, and then in 2016 he joined forces with country superstars The Lacs along with Hard Target and Wess Nyle to form the new country rap supergroup Racket County. The group would go on to produce tracks with a combined over 5 million views on YouTube, proving them a force to be reckoned with in the scene. After being consistently part of a group, Cymple Man broke out and debuted his solo career with “Higgs Field”. The album spawned the viral hit “WTF”, which has since generated nearly 500,000 Spotify streams. The video, which hilariously depicts a keg party inside a laundromat, has almost 400,000 views. The album also shined a light on Cymple Man’s unique rhyming ability and his wordplay that makes him a true student of the school of hip-hop.
During the past year, while the whole world was on pause battling a global pandemic, Cymple Man stayed active releasing new videos that showcased his blue-collar sense of humor. He took the Survivor classic, “Eye Of The Tiger” and used it to parody the hit Netflix series, Tiger King. His follow-up video was written in homage to the classic comedy “Talladega Nights” and the track was aptly named “Ricky Bobby” after the film’s iconic main character depicted by Will Ferrell. It was filmed in a parody style, and kept with the theme throughout; showcasing Cymple Man and Hard Target running amuck in a grocery store as they flip hilarious catchphrases from the movie into hip-hop lexicon.
 

ROCK ‘N’ LOAD MAGAZINE INTERVIEW:

 
Tell us a bit about the song and video for Blue Jeanie. it strikes me as a redneck remake of Aladdin. (For example – any significant life experiences to draw from, locations or people that inspired you, etc) 
 
Cymple Man: We’ve all played that game in our life at some point where you ask your friend, if he or she really found a magic lamp what he or she would wish for. I try to write songs that not everybody is gonna come up with, and I’ve always loved the art of storytelling. So on this track I brought that scenario to life! With the help of Breadwine Deville and Cap1. 
 
Are there any stories/anecdotes you want to share behind the making of the new video for Blue Jeanie 
 
Cymple Man: Growing up my sister Tori’s favorite Disney movie was Aladdin. I mean she would instantly want to start the movie over again right as it ended, so I’m sure having that beat into my head at a young age stuck with me. Of course we all would love to stumble upon some magic Genie that can grant you anything you would like. So I thought I’d make a track about the things a country boy from Georgia might ask for given the opportunity. 
 
The new album “Been It” comes out on August 6th via Dirt Rock Empire. What can fans expect from the new album? 
 
Cymple Man: It is truly my best work. I wanted to record about 10-15 tracks and pick the best 6 for an EP originally, but 11 made the final cut, so it became an album. I have a couple story telling tracks like ‘Blue Jeanie’, ‘Valley’, and ‘Karma’ featuring Dusty Leigh. And I’ve got country rock/rap tracks like ‘Sticks’ featuring The LACs, ‘Backyard’ featuring Hard Target and ‘Double Wide’, and I’ve also got some 808 bass beating rap tracks on here like ‘Better Things’ and ‘No Friends’. Not to mention the serious ones that are already out on YouTube and Spotify, ‘Down Here’ featuring OverTime and ‘Clouds’ featuring Hard Target. It’s just a complete project man. I loved it back when you got an artists new album off the rack and it took you through all kinds of different styles and every track had a somewhat new feel to it. So that’s what I structure my projects after. Classic records. I want classics. 
 
What was the songwriting process like on this album compared to Higgs Field?  
 
Cymple Man: Higgs field still has some of my favorite joints on it! ‘Home’, ‘Hiding’, ‘Rap One’, I still believe in those cuts. I’ve just been a member of quite a few different groups throughout the years that people aren’t used to hearing my solo work yet.  Like take Racket County ‘Welcome to Dodge City’ for example. That’s some of my best streaming work to date and there are people out there that don’t even realize they are hearing me on that album. That’s the mountain I’m working on climbing right now…self-promotion. And that’s basically what this album is about. Bringing the music that I want to bring and putting my solo footprint down! I have a great group of people around me though, and we all want to see each other win. I know I’m with a team of winners and it’s all in God’s time anyway, so I’m happy with whatever comes my way through music. I’m doing what I love and living a childhood dream and I owe it all to Dirt Rock, The LACs, and the Dirtbag and Dimebag fans out there! 
 
Your music runs the gamut from straight rap where you are spitting bars to just trash talk rap, and then more introspective songs about life. With the Ying/Yang to the music, do you think that sometimes one side overshadows the other?
 
Cymple Man: I write how I’m feeling at the moment. If I’m in a creative mood, then I find a beat that fits that. If I’m angry or just want to throw some wild lyrics over something, then I find one like that. I think more people actually need more diversity in their music. It’s just smarter to me. Why you want to give everyone the same sounding track every time? I mean you might have 10,000 people that like your sound, but 500,000 might like something different that you were too scared to try. 
 
You seem to have a very old school mentality with your approach to rap, where you are very lyrical, and your wordplay is extremely sharp. Do you think you fit into the Country Rap scene or do you think they appreciate the rappers with a true respect for the old school lyricism?
Cymple Man: I think anyone that is in any genre that has the word “Rap” in it, better be able to bring it. People love country rap and I do too, but that’s not the whole bag for me. I want the same type of styles and sounds that I grew up on and that captivated me to be inside of everything I make. Sometimes I think the bars and metaphors that I use are lost on the average Country Rap fan, but I make my style of music for the people that like me anyway. I take my time making every line matter in my music. Sometimes it is a slower process for me then some, but I’m fine with that, because if my name is on it, then I want it to blow your F’ing mind!
 
What is the one thing that you want people to take away from listening to “Been It” when it finally drops?
Cymple Man: I want them to be able to tell that this wasn’t just a slapped together album. This thing is a foundation for my solo career that I’m gonna build on top of. And that from here on out, anything that has my name on it, will be this caliber of work!
