When did everything associated with Bounce music and New Orleans Hip Hop bust out of the Hip Hop world and spawn the world wide phenomena of twerking?
There are now twerking memes by the hundreds of thousand on youtube, some of them hilarious, some very sexy and others just plain weird.
And then Miley Cyrus has to go and push it all into the stratosphere
But bringing it back to its roots, Bounce music legend Big Freedia, who is one of the most well known and most celebrated members of the New Orleans Hip Hop crowd has led an attempt on the twerking record in New York
And New Yorkers, 358 of them, twerked simultaneously for 2 mins led by Big Freedia, following the instructions to make it all about the booty and not the knees.
The Guiness World Record man was there to make sure it all happened according to the rules and handed out the certificate afterwards. I think we need to file this one under weird and wonderful NYC. LIKE that New Yorkers are always setting new records of all kinds.
