Bow Wow Tries to Explain Dabbin’, Migos Call Him “Clown Ass”
Poor Bow Wow. The man thought he was giving people a public service announcement, but ended up the latest target of Twitter's wrath. Dabbin' became too "commercial" for Bow Wow's liking and the rapper decided to let the world know that he was tired of seeing people dab.
"We got the whole world dabbing and they don't even understand or know what dab is," Bow Wow says in a Facebook video. "First of all, dab is a strong way to smoke marijuana. It's the purest form of marijuana. It's extremely strong. So the dance comes from when you smoke and you cough."
Bow Wow's origin story for dabbin' is a little shaky as it's filled with some misinformation that sounds like it's straight out of an Urban Dictionary entry. It also doesn't help that Bow Wow uses the fact he sells vape pens as evidence that he's an expert on the matter.
While it's not perfectly clear who created the dabbin' dance, Atlanta rapper Jose Guapo is among those credited as an originator. Some of the credit certainly goes to Migos, who at the very least popularized the dance and made it a national phenomenon.
Regardless of who authored the dance, those rappers and affiliate Rich The Kid were not happy with Bow Wow's erroneous explanation. Migos, Jose Guapo and Rich The Kid all took to Twitter to criticize Bow Wow. Tons of Twitter users joined in on the fun too as Bow Wow's explanation came under fire. Check out some of the tweets below.
