Snap to It

Snap is a new subgenre of Rap music that is emerging from Atlanta, Georgia. A close cousin to similar Dirty South style crunk, snap is characterized by its namesake finger-snapping, and its very primitive, stripped-down approach to hip-hop. Tracks commonly consist plainly of a hi-hat, bass, snapping, a main groove, and a vocal track. Invented for use at clubs, it is unusually languid for normal dance music, with a slow tempo. There is some debate over the true origin of snap, with both rap outfits Dem Franchize Boyz and D4L and leading producer Mr. Collipark claiming themselves the creators.

There are four dances that can be done to snap music. They are The Poole Palace, The Westside Walk, Jocin', and the Snap Dance. The snap dance is a very simple dance done to snap music. Different artists have different ways of instructing it, from Lil' Jon's "Snap ya Fingaz, Do ya Step" description to Dem Franchize Boyz "Lean wit it, Rock wit it" instruction. Basically, the dance is the movement of the torso and arms with little (if any) feet movement, followed by snapping and leaning back in time with the music.
