Is the real Harlem Shake finally back?

Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter V is finally out. And it’s glorious.

One of the standout tracks on the album is “Uproar,” which was produced by Swizz Beatz. The song samples G. Dep’s 2001 street classic “Special Delivery.”

Over the weekend Swizz Beats uploaded a video where he was dancing to the song. In the video, Swizz is doing the Harlem Shake, a dance that G. Dep and Diddyย popularized in the early 2000s. (We’re not talking about the “Harlem Shake”ย Baauerย came up with in 2013. We’re talking about the dance where you shake your shoulders.)

Swizz added the hashtag #UproarChallenge to the video.

Shiggy, the man who made the #InMyFeelingsChallangeย pop, got in on some of the action:

Eventually, the challengeย got on the radarย of Lil Wayne himself. And he sent out a video cosigning the #UproarChallenge:
