Watch: THAGODSQUAD’s T-Time - #DESU
You may have heard of TGS/THAGODSQUAD and you may not have. Most people know about them because they promised the general public a mixtape called All Day Animay and never delivered it. Some people will blame founding members Y2G and T-Time for this because they’re lazy and while that is correct I am here to tell you it was definitely all T-Time’s fault. Recently, however, T-Time stepped up to the plate following Y2G’s solo tape release Introduction To Heroics and took ownership of the forgotten project. All Day Animay is now almost complete with no release date scheduled as of yet.
So let’s talk about the first TGS video ever to hit the internet released just this Friday. #DESU is a solo track by T-Time and it references many, many, many animes. Now I don’t really enjoy anime but it was still very impressive and even I got some of the references. Regardless of my inability to become anime, I love this song because of its fun feeling and the video captures it perfectly. Some people might see this article and think “But Gary, you’re part of TGS this is biased!” You are completely right! I may call T-Time names every chance I get but the boy can rap. If he raps well enough I get paid by association probably. We love money here at TGS.
My favourite part of the video is not the fact Tim’s dressed as my uncle or that he keeps duplicating himself and wiping in larger versions of himself into his own video – it’s the green screen. I asked myself “Where the fuck did he get a green screen?” Then I asked myself “Is that the volleyball scene from Top Gun playing on the green screen?” This video is a perfect example of the type of shit that goes on in Tim’s mind. I know this because we are very similar in the ways of what we find funny. TGS were formed precisely for shit like this. Nonsense. Thoroughly fun nonsense. The happenings on the green screen have absolutely nothing to do with the lyrics and that makes it so important. T-Time takes you through an adventure of anime, waterfalls and dogs learning how to drive people cars. If that doesn’t excite you then your favourite colour might be beige. The only thing I don’t like about the video is that I’m not in it. Check it out and get ready for All Day Animay.
