Quavo Says The Dab Is Finally Dead

But no one told J.R. Smith apparently.

In June, 2015, The FADER covered a dance out of Atlanta called the dab that Migos and Peewee Longway were bringing to national attention. In the 12 months since, everyone from Rihanna to Hillary Clinton has been seen hitting the dab, but according to one of the dance's original popularizers, the dab is now dead.

Migos's Quavo was stopped by TMZ this weekend and asked about comments made by Carolina Panthers NFL player Cam Newton in which he suggested the dab is over.

"You got to give everybody a new trend, a new wave or something new to do so I feel him on that," Quavo said, agreeing with the player who introduced the move to the NFL. "Everybody was copying it and now it's time to switch lanes."

Asked if Migos have another dance to introduce to the world, Quavo was hesitant to give an answer. "We ain't gon' tell you because we know y'all gon' take it, bite it and re-write it," he said. "But you know, we'll come out with something new."

If the dab is dead, then somebody should tell J.R. Smith, who was spotted celebrating the Cleveland Cavalier's NBA Finals win last night.
