Atlanta’s Dabbin’ Dance Craze Is Taking Over Social Media


There’s a new dance to learn, but this one’s not too hard.

What started as a regional down South adlib is quickly becoming a masterful maneuver in clubs and on street corners. It’s called dabbin’.

We all know in hip-hop, one slang word can have many different meanings. Although “dabbin'” has long since been associated with weed smoking and described by some in rap as the new “swaggy,” Atlanta-based Quality Control trio Migos have been credited with the invention of the “dabbin'” dance. Now, stars like Metro Boomin’ and Future have been spotted dabbin’ as well.

Here’s your crash tutorial of how to dab from the hometown experts themselves.
