Throwback Jams: Dirty South Dance
Celebrate #TBT every week with a themed playlist from VIBE’s speakers to your ears
In the early 2000s, a wave of dance music hit the rap and R&B scene with a vengeance, emanating from the dirty South with Atlanta as its home base. Knocking 808s, fat bass lines, and infectious call-and-respond lyrics with accompanying choreography had the nation hitting the 1, 2 step or Dougie on command.
With summertime in full bloom, it’s about time we dig in the crates and dust off some of our favorite Southern dance tracks that will surely be in rotation at day parties and family BBQs this season.
