If you're a true supporter, you may have first learned of the Philly rapper's moves from a Vine that dates back to 2013. In a chaotic clip, he pumps it and then drops into a split from which he miraculously transitions into a spin.More people may have caught on to Uzi's not-so-hidden talent when he started busting out his iconic shoulder roll. This sassy move became his signature that stuns crowds with to this day. The next chapter in 'The Dances of Lil Uzi' consists of the self-recorded videos he began posting to social media to preview unreleased tracks. Fans watched Uzi nail choreography to a snippet of "New Patek" for months before finally being blessed with the song's official release. Fast forward a bit and Uzi's hitting "the shoot" dance all over the place, including in a video alongside BlocBoy JB.
While this summary is by no means extensive, it touches upon some crucial moments in Uzi's dance dance evolution. The latest video that can be added to the list features Uzi breakdancing in what appears to be a public park. The brief clip that he posted on Instagram was extracted from an IG Live session in which he gave his followers a glimpse of his dance practice. Uzi can be seen pulling off the flare move. He only does it once, but that's impressive enough.
