First of all, let me start by saying that he will forever be Lil' Bow Wow. You get famous with Lil', then you're Lil' forever. That's just how it works, at least for me anyway. Anyway, this history lesson on the origins of dabbing actually makes a lot of sense. Dabbing is a way of smoking extremely potent marijuana, extremely potent marijuana does make most people cough, and though I rarely do it, coughing into your elbow is a very efficient way to cover your mouth. Other than the most popular dance trend sweeping the nation just being a way of politely performing a bodily fucnction in public, this explanation seems pretty logical.
With that said, even before 'Rich The Kid' told me that Lil' Bow Wow was a dumb fuck that was talking completely out of his ass, I already assumed that Lil' Bow Wow was a dumb fuck that was talking completely out of his ass. I have always assumed that Lil' Bow Wow was a dumb fuck that knew no other form of expression than speaking through his anus. That's because I simply can't think of Lil' Bow Wow as anything other than a 13 year old kid rocking dreadlocks, a bandana, and a fucking Mickey Mouse chain, rapping alongside Jermaine Dupri (BTW, So So Def? Weirdest rap label of all time). Lil' Bow Weezy, Prince of the O-town, will always be a child in my eyes. I don't care if he's damn near 30. He is still a prepubescent little dude dribbling a basketball that is two times the size of his head in 'Be Like Mike', and much like any other prepubescent kid, I will never think that he knows what he is talking about. Maybe I just can't see past his original rap name, but maybe others can't either, and that's probably why all child stars end up addicted to drugs or threatening suicide.
Oh well, cue it the fuck up....
P.S. Ever since the 'Cam Newton is a thug' hysteria started I don't think I have seen one single touchdown dance that didn't feature a dab of some sort. Is that NFL player's way of showing solidarity, or has the dab become less of a celebration, and more of a post-scoring obligation?
