Shoulder Leans

Diamond and D Roc - The Bankhead Bounce (bass mix) (from 12" 1995)

Forget that footwork, what can your shoulders do? The track that started the snap and all the geeking out on the westside, brought to you by Diamond and the dude who would become one half of the Ying Yang Twins. It's hard to believe a hip hop record this minimal came out between Illmatic and Reasonable Doubt. The Atlanta Heritiage of whisper songs is a lot clearer due to this fucking weird shoulder percolator of a dance that Michael Jackson did on TV once.

The Video.
