With the success of the West Coast dance craze known as “jerkin’” on the rise, Los Angeles based Arsenal Record decided to release an entire compilation album dedicated to the movement. ‘Super Jerkin’ Vol. 1,’ features tracks from 12 different artists including female rap group Pink Dollaz, Def Jam artist YG, and rap ensemble JINC Ent. Those appearing on the compilation have collectively received over 25 million plays and views on social networking sites like MySpace and YouTube.
Jerkin’ was born in the L.A. area and made famous by the rap duo New Boyz by way of their 2009 hit ‘You’re a Jerk.’ The “geeked up” teenagers not only introduced dance moves like the “reject,” “pin-drop” and “dip,” but incorporated a hipster fashion statement with their skinny jeans and bright colored apparel. Their aptly titled debut ‘Skinny Jeans and a Mic’ last September.
