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 Diddy popularized in the early 2000s. (We’re not talking about the “Harlem Shake” Baauer 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 #InMyFeelingsChallange pop, got in on some of the action:
Eventually, the challenge got on the radar of Lil Wayne himself. And he sent out a video cosigning the #UproarChallenge:
As soon as Lil Wayne co-signed the challenge, a bunch of submissions came flooding in on Twitter and Instagram. Here are some of the best ones we dug up:
Even rappers like Casanova got in on some of the fun.
