Bow Wow has seen people across the globe embrace the "dab" movement, but feels very few really know what it means.
Rather than sit on the sideline and let the trend pass, Bow Wow hopped on social media to "inform" people on the true meaning of the word "dabbin."
“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 version of the origin of the word "dabbin" is shaky and social media attacked him as soon as he released this flawed video.
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 introduced it to mainstream America.
Migos, Jose Guapo and Rich The Kid all took to Twitter to criticize Bow Wow. "Somebody pls tell Bow Wow stfu cuz that is NOT where the dab came from! F**kin clown '" said Rich The Kid.
Probably best to stay out the way next time Bow Wow.
