Reasons why I love YouTube part whatever

"Do The Smurf, do The Wop, Baseball Bat
Rooftop like we bringing '88 back"

(Nas on Made You Look)

Another entry in the canon of 80s Rap songs I never knew had videos: Woppit by B. Fats. Song deets: a 1986 Teddy Riley production that is thee definitive ode to the dance known as The Wop. A strong case could be made that this video is thee definitive footage of The Wop in action. Best dance in NYC history or wot? As Uncle Murda nearly said, anybody can do it.

B. Fats - Woppit
(From Woppit 12" single; 1986)

Wish there were a lost The B-Fats video too.

Teddy Riley said he wants to do a movie about The Rooftop.

Would probably watch that.

Thinkin' about it, Woppit really should have been on the Paid In Full soundtrack.
