Rolling Stone reports the Wu-Tang star’s jingle “drew inspiration from his childhood memories of chasing after ice cream trucks on Staten Island –blending traditional ice cream truck sounds with jazz and hip-hop elements,” as per a press release.
“We wanted to make a melody that includes all [communities], that’s good for every driver, that’s good for every kid,” RZA continues. “And I’m proud to say, for the first time in a long time, a new ice cream jingle will be made available to trucks all across the country, in perpetuity. That means forever—like Wu-Tang’s forever. And I can assure you, this one is made with love.”
They say the Ice cream is the cream to the favor that rule the taste.Well,RZA joined forces with Good Humor to replace the well-known ice cream jingle, “Turkey in the Straw.”
“We can change the dynamics,” RZA says in a behind-the-scenes video about the making of the jingle. “We can make a new ice cream jingle for a new era.” You can hear a snippet of the jingle below and it’s pleasing me and my homegirls.
