"I see what you are saying there," Mike told me, when I shared my theory of Migos playing it cool in order to keep the dab on mainstream America's radar, "but the only thing is, I haven't known them to really care or give a shit about anything in the past. They've always been huge in Atlanta, but now, they are getting some serious coverage all over because of the dab, so there might be some motivation there to play it kind of cool. But again, it might hard to see them even caring if everyone knew this move was about weed."
In all fairness, this wouldn't be the first time slang from songs, or dance moves, have been embraced my lame-ass people across the country, without realizing the implications. Let's look at words like "Skeet Skeet," "Bando," "Trap," and "Superman the Hoe." They mean "ejaculate," "an abandoned house used for selling drugs," "the corner where drugs are sold," and "ejaculating on a woman's back, then sticking a bed-sheet on her like a cape," respectively.
The "Bankhead Bounce" was (reportedly) a crack cocaine-influenced dance, made popular by Michael Jackson and copied in suburban living rooms across the nation. Players for the Washington Redskins and the Alabama National Championship team have recently been captured mimicking a dance, the "Ran Off on da Plug Twice," created by the rapper Plies in his song "Ritz Carlton," which is apparently about running away from the cops.
