This is dabbing.
It's a dance, and it's awesome.
Dab has previously referred to a paralyzing wax-form of weed. But, as rapper Peewee Longway explains, the word is now both drug and lifestyle lingo, like "dope" before it.
Producer Mike WiLL Made It told The FADER that dab "started off as a dance. Migos and Peewee made it popular," he said.
Jose Guapo is also credited with starting the dab. Here it is in his video for "Fader," the ode to our magazine released in May 2014.
These days, rappers dab in their music videos...
And some artists outside of Atlanta have begun dabbing as well.
As far as we're concerned, that's great. Dab on, kids.
UPDATE: "Skippa was the nigga that was dabbing the most." -Mike WiLL
