If you want a less tedious way than drawing on every frame, you can follow these steps:

- Create basic shape that you want to animate
- Create solid and add fractal noise effect
- Change the fractal noise parameters to be long and stringy (you might need to play with these later to get the desired effect)
- On the seed random parameter, alt+click the stopwatch and add the following expression: time*50
- Precompose the solid and select move effects into new comp. Call the precomp "map"
- Hide the precomp
- Add a displacement map effect to the shape layer
- Choose your "map" precomp as the displacement map layer
- Choose "luminance" for both horizontal and vertical displacement.

Voila. You might need to do a lot of playing around with fractal noise to get the look that you want, but once you do, you can use it for a map on every shape you'll be animating, and it will save you a lot of time.

Im gonna try that, thanks! and yea I personally love Joey Badass but I kinda like Mac, especially that last cd he released "Faces". But yea man, I feel like the write on effect for the stroke is great but very cumbersome to work with, lots of layer with built in keyframes that I gotta move around. Im also finding that I have to draw on the actual video itself the copy into a separate layer which is a little annoying

On a separate note, it's sad that Joey Badass is making himself look bad by agreeing to be on tracks with Mac Miller
