LL Cool J famously told opponents that they couldn't dance on the second song from his classic debut album. Nearly 40 years later, one of LL's peers, KRS-One keeps that idea and poses it as a question. Blastmasta's 24th album, I M A M C R U 1 2, includes "Can You Dance," a song produced by Connecticut's Sun-One.
This month, that self-released track received a video treatment. One of Hip-Hop's most energetic live performers considered the concert space in a song that presents a history lesson of the culture's dance moves.
Another Hip-Hop O.G., Doug E. Fresh, joins the video to do the famous dance named in his honor. The "World's Greatest Entertainer" demonstrates his move. KRS then encourages Heads to freestyle and lists other dances that have been made popular by Hip-Hop.
