The Power of Snap Compels You: Ying Yang Twins

Posted by on Sun, Jan 26, 2014 at 1:28 PM

(Nectar) Atlanta’s Ying Yang Twins are best known for their platinum early-’00s work with two huge ATL tastemakers: iconic crunk choirmaster Lil Jon and the man who brought the world Soulja Boy, Mr. Collipark (aka DJ Smurf). While “Get Low” and “Salt Shaker” are C-word classics, it’s the snap/“intimate club” landmark “The Whisper Song” that’s endured far better (it even got bitten by David Banner’s “Play” within months of release). You would agree if you’ve ever seen a group of classy ladies dance in a club, rapturously chanting “beat the pussy up” and “wait’ll you see my dick.” While a bunch of dudes in jerseys and headbands “throwing ’bows” and drinking Red Bull and tequila (aka “crunk juice”) out of gas cans is cool, I’ma go with the other scenario. I guess that means “snap” wins over “crunk”; either way, this show should be bonkers. With Dan Valdez and D Menace.
