Thanks to Youtube and even Myspace...the Jerkin movement here is easily the biggest local sound and culture that L.A. has seen since Gangsta Rap, and that's without question. Even though it's only in L.A. right now, and may not even blow up nationwide, we've always lacked a regional style of party/club music linked with a dance and fashion style/culture.

The main song that's leadin the movement is "You're a jerk," which is the only song most people outside of L.A. have heard. There are about 20-30 songs that the young crowd here loves, and this is all they listen to and care for right now. While most West Coast rap fans are into the new artists and the ones we've been discussin for 4-5 years, along with the legends, the kids here don't care about any of that...they love these songs that are comin from people that go to their high school, that sound VERY amateurish and unpolished. Although all of the songs they love obviously lack the musicianship and creativity that much of our earlier music had, it has the energy and bounce needed to work for the dances and everything that goes along with it.

At this point, I have very mixed feelings about it....the sound is nothing but an obvious offspring of Hyphy, and it has a slight Tampa Bay, Florida influence to it as well. None of the songs I've heard sound like anything I haven't heard before, and most of the rappers are average and below...but they have that L.A. local flow that I thought had been forgotten about. The fact that these kids have made it big without any radio or TV is amazing to me...and it's funny that these HS kids with NO deal, no mentor, and no major connections or relatives are getting WAY MORE requests and love than the numerous signed/unsigned acts we've spent the last few years talking about. They definitely need to evolve it, because all of the songs sound the exact same, and none of them are as strong as the strongest Hyphy tracks were.

Here are the main songs the 21 and under crowd out here are goin hardest on.......
New Boyz - You're a jerk


Pink Dollaz - Never hungry


Pheo - Hot chick


Cold Flamez - Miss me kiss me


Tay F. 3rd - Conceited


Tay F. 3rd - Eastside step


Vixen Ent - Toot my shit


Vixen Ent. - I need that


D-Lo - No hoe (Bay artist)

- Remix ft. E-40

Videos of the kids dancin to it....






I wonder if Snoop will do a jerkin song...if so, this will probably make some noise, just as Hyphy did when 40 and Short used hyphy tracks for their main singles. I can even predict that Snoop's first single for his next album will be a jerkin type of song...even "Drop it like it's hot" had the same feel/vibe as a lot of these songs do.

Well those songs haven't made any kinda noise here as of yet. I think Ya Boy's COULD, it has much more of a Jerkin feel than K-Boy's...it's similar to Hyphy, where a lot of Bay artists made songs where they'd say "hyphy" on it, but the beat wouldn't move the crowd or work for the dances.

yea honestly this is what is goin bring back LA to the spotlight once again..This new song by New Boyz - Your A Jerk is blowin up outside of LA and has reached other regions like mine for example..Im not much a big fan of the jerkin cuz like R-Tistic said it sounds unpolished and a bit ameture ish but it has what LA has been missin for the longest time and thats some danceable music
 

G.O.D. Pt. III

ya boy's jerkin is not a representation of what the bay sounds like.

d-lo's no hoe is a slapper except for the fact dude can't rhyme worth shit. the remix is tolerable

oh well, 90% of dubcc doesn't give a shit about music after 1996

Yeah, I mean jerkin is really like 80% Bay to me...nothin about it is L.A., and none of it has really outgrown or evolved from the Bay song. Two of the songs they like are the exact same beat as Candy, they just looped it and rapped about jerkin to it.

This is ALLLL the L.A. heads do now, especially the younger ones...no more clown dancin, no more crip/clown walk, unless you with an older crowd. If you do a HS event, these are the only songs they ask for...barely any Wayne, Snoop, old school, or anything else, just Jerkin songs. The older heads are on it a bit too, and you are hearin "You're a jerk" in the 21+ clubs all the time now, but none of the other songs crossed over yet. Even the 30, 40+ are doin the dances with their kids, it's kinda funny, LOL.

Aside from those songs, the biggest songs for these crowds/dances are....
E-40 ft. Too Short - Sliding down the pole
D4L - Scotty (Geeked up)
Khia - Look back at it; K-Wang
3 Deep - Watch my shoes
The Pack - Light that shit

Basically so...because everybody from around the country who's seen it has been on it too, especially the club heads and anybody who likes to party.

I know many "true" L.A. heads aren't gonna like it much, but I just feel this needs to evolve and become stronger and more solid to where it isn't just a fad that sounds wack in a few years. A lot of the hyphy tracks that came out STILL sound amazing and as dope as they did when they dropped, such as the ones from Short, Federation, Keak...but some of the smaller hits sound wack now.

Hyphy had great moments to me.

This isn't the sound most of us are lookin for, but it's more than just the music...the dancing involved is really the most important thing here. With the clown/krump movement, that was VERY strong, but it had NO music to go along with it, which was a major mistake. With this here, the dances are accessible and somethin that people nationwide could get into, and that is good and bad...it could be seen as just a fad, but it's time that we had something completely different and just fun.

I really just want some of our main producers to take the backbone of this and re-package it...they don't have to make it funky or anything like that, but just somethin similar to how Rick Rock and Lil Jon made some amazing beats durin the Hyphy movement.

Co-fucking sign! Ol' heads are boring me with that bullshit

I was skeptical at first but if Jerkin is what the ppl want then Jerkin is what they get

I hope Ya Boy's joint pops off cos dude is a good rapper at the end of the day!

thats waz up
again from a few spins of listenin to this "new movement of muzik-its new to me) im not feelin it
but if it sells, i guess whoevers behind it, go head and push it
but at the end of the day, what will bring this coast back is str8 bangers from wc, ice cube, xzibit
for example
back in 2000 when xzibit did the whole x marked the spot movement (haha jus named it that)
aite he had 3 singles
1.x
2.front 2 back
3.get your walk on

aite right there you got 3 bangers, to me they were 3 anthems by 1 rapper from this coast.  they werent 100% gangsta but they were bangin
get your walk on, i mean i seen and watched cats all over the world do the c-walk to that shit.
so we had muffuccaz from different regions doin what he had initially put out there as song.  of course nwa, king t, wc, cubes, mack 10's etc.. did it years before, but that era was crazy for us and fresh
and that sound is still fresh
so bottomline i think that sound/movement needs to be brought back wit todays sound, and it can be done.
wc's last album is a example of what im talkin about.

I first heard about this jerkin late last year when I seen kids from Gardena high after school dancing/jerkin with their ipods on in the mcdonald parking lot on artesia/normandie and in the streets on the sidewalk. @ first I was like WTF. But I later found out more about it from a kid at work jerkin, and still I was like WTF. I think its cool. It has that The Pack sound. In general the beats sound simple like somethin I can whip up using my psp traxxpad..lol.

I think that L.A.'s "Jerk" movement can kinda restart the "Hyphy" movement and if artists can keep their shit together,  Cali can come back on top.

But that's just me! haha

I just listened to this song on youtube. This shit ain't gonna start no west coast movement. Its just another extension of the hyphy movement. Just another song to put a dance to.
