10 Jamaican Moments On @BodegaBoys With @DesusNice x @TheKidMero!


Bodega Boys” is a Podcast series created by Social Media/Internet/TV Personalities Desus Nice and The Kid Mero and features a dose of their irreverent yet hilarious takes on Pop Culture. Sponsored by Red Bull and recorded at the Red Bull Studios in New York, this is another avenue that gave the hosts a huge following since their previous Podcast (Desus Vs Mero), and their TV stints (Uncommon Sense, Joking Off, Guy Code). What makes their content even more interesting is the fact that the Bronx based Desus and Mero were born to Immigrant Parents (Jamaican and the Dominican Republic respectively) and they share experiences dealing with them and the different cultures. Below are 10 Jamaican moments featured on their “Bodega BoysPodcast.

Ep. 16: “Jamaica is the shining star of the Caribbean”

When co-host The Kid Mero asked Desus Nice if Jamaica was considered a 3rd World country, Desus quickly fired back saying it wasn’t, but created the film, “Third World Cop“. He further elaborated to say Jamaica invented everything including Reggae/Dancehall Music and Bob Marley, then went overboard with saying they invented Marijuana, Shipping Barrels, white Jeans, and Mesh Merinos. He also added that they utilized Tanks to store drinking water, claimed to be the home of the most beautiful women in the world and never took a loss when it came to fighting on the train.

Ep. 7: “Irie!”

Desus and Mero discussed Wrestling and what roles they’d play if they were hired as Tag Team Wrestlers. While Mero spoke on representing the Dominican Republic, Desus spoke on being a Wrestler representing Jamaica named “Kid Montego Bay” with attire consisting of a Mesh Merino, and plays on a bad Jamaican stereotype kind of like a character from “Cool Runnings” (or any “Jamaican” character in movies) where he smokes a spliff, using “Irie“, “We Jammin‘”, and “Big up” as catchphrases.

Ep. 6: “Yuh have a big face…”

Desus made reference to an NY Times article about the rising popularity of Jamaican food. The article detailed where to get it from and name dropped “Miss Lilly’s“, a popular Jamaican Dining spot in New York. Desus went on to advise listeners that the best Jamaican dining spots are located in Flat Bush, White Plains Rd, Boston Rd, and 2nd Ave in Mt. Vernon in New York. The downside to those locations are bad service, and they are usually in “dangerous” areas but serve great food nonetheless. He also presented scenarios where if a Vegan asks for “Gluten Free” meals, they will be attacked, or be given a stare down. He then spoke on an Aunt who runs a Restaurant and paints a picture of how the meeting will occur including being insulted by her at first glance. Then supported Desus’ statements by saying if you are served food in under 30 minutes, then it won’t be enjoyable, and most times when you order a meal, it will already by sold out even after confirming the order.
