Drake Introduces the Wheelchair Jimmy Dance Move on Club Paradise Tour
Dancing has always been a part of hip-hop. From the Pee-Wee Herman to the Superman to the Dougie, no superstar rapper’s profile is complete without a signature dance move. While on his Club Paradise Tour in early March, Drake introduced his new dance step called “The Wheelchair Jimmy” during his performance of the Lil Wayne-assisted song, ‘The Motto.’
The dance is quite simple to do. You use your hands to pretend that you’re pushing yourself in a wheelchair and you hop to the beat. The dance was inspired by Drake’s character Jimmy Brooks from the popular teen show ‘Degrassi: The Next Generation,’ who was paralyzed in a wheelchair after being shot by a fellow student.
So start practicing your Wheelchair Jimmy dance so you can be ready for Drake when it comes to your city on the second leg of his Club Paradise Tour in May. Drizzy just released a trailer for the new trek, which features backstage footage of him and his crew handling business during their previous outing.
The second leg of the Club Paradise Tour boasts an all-star line-up of rap acts. On the bill are in-demand rappers J. Cole, Waka Flocka Flame, Meek Mill, French Montana and 2 Chainz. The trek kicks off May 7 in Concord, Calif., and wraps up June 17 in Boston, Mass. Tickets are on sale now at all Ticketmaster outlets.
