The Exploitation of Jiblit Dupree is a comedic concept album produced and recorded by Hal McGee, consisting of Jiblit's voicemails, audio ripped from videos, and a telephone conversation, mixed together with improvisations by Canned Ham, all recorded in inglorious lo-fi filth on microcassette. The album features original stories, songs, poems, and routines created by Jiblit Dupree -- a veritable surfeit of tongue-in-cheek redneck humor addressing subjects ranging from cornbred misogyny to drug abuse to Jiblit's alternative careers as NASCAR and drag racing drivers and as a porno actor, sex with UFO aliens, depression, alcoholism, murder, death, fried chicken, love/hate passive-aggressive musings on Hal McGee's exploitation of Jiblit, and much much more. Excess is the operative word here.
in their review of "The Exploitation of Jiblit Dupree" the New York Times said that "this album reveals the rotten worm-infested underbelly of post-capitalist America, and Jiblit Dupree is the redneck Salvador Dalí, every bit as feverishly obsessive".
