Lemmie See Ya, Lemmie See Ya

DJ Trick – Walk! (from Memphis Gangsta Walkin‘ Vol 1 2001)

Memphis buckin aka gangsta walking aka jookin doesn’t exactly come attached with a genre of music made specifically for the dancers a la Chicago footwork, but there are a handful of local rappers and DJs who have penned paeans to the culture. The most famous being Al Kapone’s Buckin & Jookin, kind of like the southern version of Watch My Feet. I was happy to find a mixtape dedicated to the craft, full of Triggermans and halloween samples with just the right bounce for a good buckin routine.
