Track Description
Available in:
"Gangster Tripping" (released as a single under the name "Gangster Trippin") is a song by British big beat musician Fatboy Slim. It was released in October 1998 as the second single from his album You've Come a Long Way, Baby. The song contains samples from "Entropy" by DJ Shadow, "Word Play" and "The Turntablist Anthem" by the X-Ecutioners, "8th Wonder" by the Sugarhill Gang, "Beat Box Wash" by the Dust Junkys, and "You Did It" by Anne Robinson. In the radio cut, the verse "We gotta kick that gangsta shit" was re-edited for censorship purposes. The song was featured on the 2006 PlayStation Portable game Lumines II and the 1999 film Go.[citation needed] The single peaked at No. 3 in the UK and No. 49 in Switzerland. The music video for "Gangster Trippin", directed by Roman Coppola, consists simply of scenes of furniture sets exploding, shown from multiple angles, and often in slow-motion. Fatboy Slim himself makes a cameo in the video, being shown on a photograph on the mirror where a lady stands up from. According to MTV at the time, the script for the video contained just one line: "Blow stuff up".
The video shows certain similarities to the ending of Antonioni's Zabriskie Point where several pieces of furniture are blown up similarly in slow motion and from different angles. Director Coppola often praised the works of Antonioni in interviews.
