Changing up in Flora

 Warning: Adult language in video.

Congratulations to up and coming rap star JoaQuin on his new video. The video Change Up was published on Youtube on July 31. However, there are a few things about the video that might be familiar to JJ readers. Readers might recognize a couple of people as well.




Blast from the past.

If you hang around the barbershop long enough you'll eventually get a haircut.

Can someone shed some light on who or what is supposed to be seen on this thing.

Nothing screams "I'm White Trash" more than a white person willingly participating in this video.

Is this the house of the man who has a case pending in Madison County for providing alcohol to minors?

Damn. People are getting turnt UP in Flora.

Should have gone to Tri County Academy. I guess I picked the wrong high school to go to.

The Alabama sorority video is better.

Predicting the 'star' of this video will not let a month pass before he breaks into and ransacks this house. Doubt me? Wait for it!

Damnit is this what Tri County is like? I was considering sending my children there. It appears a tour of the school during school hours is in order before I can commit.

Guy at 1:04 smoking a blunt looks like the defendant who supported the prosecutor you posted about before the election.

1:29, I believe you are dead on. I'm pretty sure the man to whom you refer is the man wearing the hat and glasses in the video.

Hahaha. Rockband guitar at 2:52. Nice.

Mostly this video strikes me as incredibly goofy.

Can't tell if the commenters watched it all the way to the end. I don't care for the genre, but the video takes on a much different dimension when you watch the ending. There's a message with which I am all too familiar. And some nice irony in how it frames what has come before as having very little value for a young black man. Smoke dreams, as it were.

Anonymous said...


Yes that's the same person, Cliff Torrence who has pending charges against him. This was filmed at his home in Flora and two of the people in it are his underage son and underage stepdaughter. They have recently 'moved/fled' to California.

I would have to check their ID, but I saw a few I would hit.

What a catchy tune! The complexity of the "music" is incredible!

I feel sorry for the poor bastards who are recognizing their daughters in this video.

This party looks okay, but what would take it to Stage 2 is if the crackhead from the "Str8 Drop" video showed up and did his thang.

Gonna shake up a few fathers in Madison County like Ashley Madison.

BTW, country boys trying to act "gansta"...Patagonia are the opposite of that.

4:47; Please speak clearly. Nobody knows what the shit you're talking about and wondering if YOU do.

Burke -

Good catch and good point.

Also, if I had a daughter in that video, she's disinherited and I'm going to prison.

Yes, the ending was incredible! We are dealing with a Fellini here people! And if only Sinatra had sung into an auto-tuner, think where his career might have gone!!

He has his own kids in this and his stepdaughter?! All underage?! This guy needs to be prosecuted to the max!

My dad was a WWII Navy vet. I can count on one hand the number of times I heard him use curse words, and NEVER the F bomb. The first time I was caught using a four letter word he told me the reason he didn't curse. While in Midshipman school a professor told the class that people cursed because they weren't educated enough to use any other words and the foul language was their way of showing their ignorance. That was true in 1941 and is still true today. This guy's vocabulary consists of about ten words, five of which are filthy. I expect to see him soon on Jackson's Most Wanted.
Thanks for the lesson Dad.

Mr. Gucci, he dead.

No kids in this video are from Tri-County, try Jackson Prep, Brandon, but no Tri-county. Thanks that is all.

TCA people have way more class than the people in that video!
The people in the video are family members of the Torrence's.
Nuts don't fall far from the tree!

Rebekah said...

I wonder if Retriever of Jackson was used to process the payments toward production of this quality video.

And by quality I mean, I'm glad it was free to watch or I would surely demand my money back.

this family needs Jesus and lots of prayers!

Who Nose.... said...

I'm going to go out on a limb here and assume this video was made for the purpose of marketing the artist. All beverages appearing in this video are made by Nestle. Any resemblance to sexual acts or underage law-breaking is coincidental only. I'm told that, following the production of the video, the children broke off in focus groups to discuss the week's Sunday School lesson.

Anonymous said...

There are two of Cliff's sons that I know, and one of the son's wives (they married very young due to a baby on the way). There are a couple of Brandon young people, some former JA kids, Brandon HS kids. I do believe most are out of high school.

Event Planner said...

Was there a crystal dish of colorful condoms in the hallway? If not, that was very poor planning.

There is bad country, bad pop, bad jazz, bad blues, bad classic bad rap. This is BAD!!!!

9:30 PM: Save it for the Senior Men's Sunday School class. The LEAST offensive thing about that video was "the language".

Flora is about 10 minutes from Livingston, right?

I'm always glad I never see people I associate with in these videos. Nice to know I'm not putting my family around trash.

North Jackson Expert said...

I can't understand half of what the young "man" is saying, but the message is clear and is a perfect example of a major problem in American society today. Poor black kid from north Jackson dreaming of what life would be like if he just had money, regardless of how he got it, with no pretense of even thinking about WORKING for it. Anyone notice the street sign when he looks out the window after waking up? Forest Ave. and El Paso. That's a neighborhood in Jackson bound by Northside Drive on the south, Hanging Moss Road on the west, Hanging Moss Creek on the north, and railroad tracks on the east. Growing up I had a lot of friends who lived there and my wife's family lived there when we got married.

Haha who are all these Tri County Academy defenders commenting?

Isn't that school a private school for kids who can't play sports anywhere else with the infrastructure of a failing public school and an academics to match?

Anonymous said...

Wrong 9:58. Its a Christian school where we send our children in an attempt to keep them from associating with and being influenced by the type of individuals above. There's more to life than sports.

Anonymous said...

Wrong 9:58. Obviously you didn't do your homework before making ignorant comments like you just did!

It is a Christian school where people can send their children in hopes they turn out better than the kids in this video. However in the kids defense... It is the worthless parents/adults that allow their children to participate in something like this!

This is just an example what is wrong with the world today! People say that kids act a lot worse now a days... NO the parents are the problem or should I say the lack of parenting is the problem. Parents are too caught up in themselves and have their priorities way out of line.

Money can buy you material things, but it can't buy you happiness!
Please pray for the children involved in hopes they turn their lives around soon and don't turn out like Cliff!

"Flora is about 10 minutes from Livingston, right?"

That was good for a huge laugh. First, it looked like the GONG SHOW with the ugly girls and dorky wanna-be white kids in Patagonia caps. The music is terrible, but the video is even worse. Who WAS that old guy in the video with the cowboy hat on?

Typical Mississippi nonsense. Wanna-be's and never-will-be's. All those people will be working at the following locations over the next year:

Tanning salon

Car dealership

Cable TV Installation

Fence installation

Ditch digging

11:46....attitudes like that don't help things. Our real problem is that this generation does not value work. They think work is beneath them, and no wonder they think that way. Not everybody inherited a corporation. Your post is BS.

Anonymous said...

12:06, you're kinda behind the times. There is no "OUR problem", because there is no "US", anymore. I think that 11:46's comment was quite good, except that he left three very important careers off his list.

Those careers are:

Meth Lab

Chop Shop

Craigslist Escort

And actually, from the looks of them, MOST of those kids may already be employed in those three fast-growing career fields. Does anybody know whether Full Sail University offers a 'Craigslist Escort' degree?

Lyricist said...

Did he actually say, "You be on my dick"? Who writes this crap?

Anonymous said...

Lyrics aside, the music was kind of catchy. I won't make a comment about the people in the video because I seem to remember that people thought Elvis's music was bad.

I See A Fraud... said...

Catchy, was it? I'll bet two hundred bucks you can't repeat one phrase, verse or line of the 'music'. Admit it.....You liked the blunt, the smoke and the girl in panties.

Not everybody can sit in the Butler Snow building. Physical labor is respectable work. This country used to value work. Apparently not any more. No wonder this generation doesn't give a crap.

Can confirm one of blondes is Miss Mississippi Teen USA Madison Brock who is Prep grad. Maybe she will submit this for her next pageant...

And blonde with black skimpy bikini top is Cliff Torrence's stepdaughter who just graduated from Jackson Prep.

Why the rush to identify those starring in this movie production? As if that will make it either more or less relevant. The point is not who are they, but WHY?

The perfect ending to this clip would have been a shiny black pickup sliding up into the gravel driveway with a big ole red and yellow sheriff's campaign sign in the back and Archie Bunker stepping out.

That would have been so, well....Madison County.

And one of the young men is in the Army, his young wife is attending college.

There was no rush and also no problem whatsoever with doing so.

My experience with pageant girls is that they're real quick to put out but they're just not that talented.

Who would put their daughter in a video like this? Or choose to do a guest appearance smoking weed. If the judge knows about this he should bury this guy. A year is chump change for someone who does this crap. I'm hoping there are some seriously mad parents seeing their kids in this joke.

Anonymous said...

As the parent of the above mentioned "young wife" of Cliff's son, I am shocked that someone knows SO much about her life and would post it on here. Do you stalk her? Are you out there following her around? I'm appalled that someone would have the audacity to say that they got married because of a baby on the way. Apparently, you need to get your facts straight. Also to say that these young adults will never amount to anything is absurd. Yes she is in college and will have her Bachelors Degree before she turns 22. What an idiot. Mind your own business and keep track of where your own kids are.

Yep... low life in the hat is Cliff Torrence. Same dude that has the 1.5 year in the State Pen looming before him. Does anyone know if he is in jail yet?

Well, it's true. She was a cheerleader one year, and pregnant the next. I believe she was 15 or 16? So she didn't marry because of her daughter? So the guy isn't the daughter's dad?

No stalking was required. My kids went to school with her.

Anonymous said...

I am just learning about all this but can't say I'm surprised where it happened. Know Cliff but haven't seen him in years. Is this video for real, made at his home in Flora? He's been flakey but surprised his wife let this go on. I assume since he skipped town be got away with this. Hard to believe Madison didn't lock him up until he began jail time. Who called police and found this video. Don't remember seeing this on TV at all!

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
