Chicagoan Lil’ Kemo Popularizes ‘Bop’ Dance

When Chicago artist Dreezy dropped her “Break a Band” official music video, the music wasn’t the only thing fans were captivated by.

There was a young man moving his body in a never before seen rhythmic motion to the beat of the song.

The young man, known as Lil’ Kemo, was performing a dance called the “Bop,” originally a form of ‘steppin.’

Some individuals may have even first caught glance off Lil’ Kemo in M.I.C. member Il Will’s “Go In” official music video shot by DGainz.

The “Bop” dance is clever, but Lil’ Kemo transformed it. This version, according to Lil’ Kemo, is called the “Kemo Walk.”

The “Bop” has undergone many transformations throughout several generations. Originally performed in the late 50s and early 60s, the “Bop” was a smooth, calm dance of striding, gliding, dipping and dabbing, according to

In today’s generation amongst a younger, hip demographic, the “Bop” now is performed to Hip Hop music. It incorporates a “bounce” with slick footwork and various body movements.
