Known for wearing masks with grillz and throwing dime bags of animal crackers to the crowd, this indie hip hop duo is the definition of juxtaposition. They manage to reference their love of partying and firearms, while still coming across as pack mentality intellects. After countless shows together, collaborative songs, the Southern Elements Tour, Donkie Monkie TV, DFW Cypher, and being roommates through ridiculousness, GOAT & JackRabbit James have officially joined forces to become…The BARNyartists. Don't get too close, they bite.
What supporters rave about the most is GOAT and jRABB's chemistry. Think the back-n-forth wordplay of the Beastie Boys mixed with the creative songwriting of Outkast. Gotta point out the banter too. These dudes playfully make fun of each other between songs, then immediately shift to 5th gear and rap their arses off. They guarantee smiles, but are armed to the teeth with verbal projectiles. Add their live band on top of that and the energy is unmatched. That's why they've shared the stage with Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, B.o.B, Lupe Fiasco, Wax, Mac Lethal, Rittz, Paul Wall, Crazy Town, Sisqo, Tone Loc, Mickey Avalon, Mr. Dibbs, Ceschi, Abstract Rude, and more. Two choices: steer clear or become a fanimal.

Fun. That's it. No need to overcomplicate anything. And this was straight ridonkulousness.
