Lil Wayne & Swizz Beatz's "Uproar" Sparks Harlem Shake Dance Challenge
Lil Wayne's Tha Carter V finally touched down last week, and it appears that the Young Money leader is back on top. After several delays and a lengthy legal battle, Wayne blessed the world with the fifth entry into his Tha Carter series. Although news surrounding the album will be making headlines for the next few weeks, one unexpected viral challenge has come from Wayne's latest project. The "Uproar" Challenge.
Swizz Beats reinvented G. Dep's "Special Delivery" for Lil Wayne's "Uproar." The original track was one of the hottest records of 2001, and it spawned a Harlem Shake craze with an entertaining music video. Swizz is looking to bring that energy back, and he posted a video of himself doing the throwback dance to "Uproar" on Instagram.
Swizz's video sparked a new Harlem Shake trend, that has now been dubbed The "Uproar" Challenge. Casanova decided to take part in the challenge as well, posting a video of himself telling his driver to let him out the car so he could break it down in the streets.
Of course, Shiggy decided to join in on the dance challenge as well. His "Uproar" Challenge video is fun, but Swizz has everyone beat with a video of Cousin Skeether hopping out of a trunk to get the job done.
