Hit Boys II
Meechie and Toosi dropped another one to Bad and Boujee so I had to do it. Plus, in talking about style for the past couple days it was only right. With each video they put out these two are dripping in it. Adidas track pants, Jordans, and Vlone hoodies will attribute to that.
Their style, however, extends for beyond the threads they sport. Creativity is the basis from which style is derived. It allows for variety, difference in perspective and these two have it in spades. What I’ve noticed from videos I’ve seen on Instagram or Vine compilations is that a lot of people will do the same couple moves with little variation, almost as if it was choreographed and often looks rigid. When Meechie and Toosi start to get active it looks more fluid, more in the moment. If their dancing were to rapping, their style would be more freestyle than written. They even talked about this in the Fader article I mentioned earlier.
Meechie: …Other people just put on a song and up and do some shit. They do the same shit at the same time, every time. I don’t even think they listen to the song they’re dancing to. But if you watch our videos, all of them look different.
Toosi: We bring the lyrics to life. We turn a song into visuals, to where people can understand. I paint the song for you.
In essence, it’s street interpretive dance. Whenever they do a new song, it calls for a different interpretation. Yes, at times the lyrics may seem repetitive but their moves certainly aren’t. They continue to find different ways to paint the picture with every video. I’ll be sure to watch every one that drops too. I’ve been subscribed to Meechie’s YouTube channel since last summer and haven’t missed one yet. That’s what style does. It captivates.
