Jadeveon Clowney’s Mom Called Him Doo Doo Because of Uncle Luke Song



Some things are better left unsaid. According to an article in the New York Times, Josenna Clowney settled on the nickname “Doo Doo” for Clowney because Doo Doo Brown was in the hook of her favorite Uncle Luke song. You can’t make this up:

His father wanted to name the boy David, but tradition in his mother’s family dictated his name start with a J. She settled on Jadeveon but called him Doo Doo, after her favorite song, its hook, “Doo Doo Brown (Brown); the brand new brother in town; yeah, boy, dope sound.”

“He don’t like it now,” his mother, Josenna Clowney, said. “Back then, everybody just say, ‘Doo Doo, come here.’ He was a little boy. You never knew he was going to be, like, the best player in college football. How could anyone on Carolina Avenue know anything like that?”

Something tells me he is going to like it even less when he figures out his momma was down with Luke. And as only he can respond, Luke had something to say about it when he found out:


Chicago born. Nebraska Alum. College football is my jam. Follow me @GregSmithBSO for all your sports needs.


  1. “Doo Doo Brown (Brown); the brand new brother in town; yeah, boy, dope sound.”

    That’s not from a Luke song. Its from “Two Hyped Brothers and a Dog” version of doo doo brown.
