Watch Jay-Z Do the Electric Slide at a Family Party
JAY-Z may be known for his lyricism, but the Brooklyn MC also dabbles in dancing.
In recent footage from a family party, Jay, along with wife Beyoncé and mother-in-law Tina Lawson, can be seen doing the Electric Slide to Frankie Beverly and Maze's classic track, "Before I Let Go." Like any good family party, a number of friends and family can be seen dancing in sync, as Jay and Bey bust their moves side-by-side.
In an Instagram comment, Lawson wrote, "Why at every party even a kids party do we have to do 10 versions of the Harlem shuffle, electric slide, Cupid Shuffle, wobble Shuffle The Texas shuffle, everything but the kitchen sink Shuffle."
While Jay appeared to be having a good time with family, the rapper was recently the target of a violent threat from George Zimmerman. Speaking with The Blast, Zimmerman slammed the rapper's upcoming Trayvon Martin documentary and claimed producer Michael Gasparro made unannounced visits to the homes of his uncles and parents.
Referencing the 2012 killing of Martin, Zimmerman told the site, "I know how to handle people who fuck with me, I have since February 2012." Zimmerman also said he holds Hov and Gasparro responsible for the "harassment" of his family and said that "anyone who fucks with my parents will be fed to an alligator."
Although Hov never responded to the comments, Snoop Dogg did speak up for the rapper, writing on Instagram, "If one hair on jays hair is touched that’s when the revolution will b televised."
