Watch Master P's new music video for "It's A Jungle Out Here."
For the new visual to "It's A Jungle Out Here", Master P decides to pay homage to New Orleans by rounding up his N.O. pals and getting them suited up in traditional New Orleans/Mardi Gras wear, that are handmade with intricate beading and stitch work. Snakes, P's children, and of course some dancing ladies also make an appearance in the music video.
Along with the visual, P provided an explanation as to the New Orleans Indian and Big Chief clothing that they are wearing in it. Read up on that below.
"The black Indians dance and sing traditional songs particular to their "tribe", and Mardi Gras Fat Tuesday Style. They use hodgepodge languages loosely based on different African dialects. The "Big Chief" decides where the "tribe" will parade; the parade route is different each time. When two tribes come across each other, they either pass by or meet for a symbolic fight. Each tribe lines up and the "Big Chiefs" taunt each other about their suits and their tribes. The drum beats of the two tribes intertwine, and the face off is complete. Both tribes continue on their way. This has been a tradition for over a century as The black neighborhoods in New Orleans gradually developed their own style of celebrating Mardi Gras."
