East coast person: Please die...
The music, being bad enough, can never compare to the disturbingly horrific "snap dance"
Other person: No it wasnt, everyone was just snapping there fingers. I could go to a poetry place and see that.
Snap music is the end of Southern rap as we know it!
There are apparently a few know inceptions of early snapping. Bobby Badfingers is a entertainer who calles himself the “fastest snapper in the world”. He performs music on stage and TV and uses his snapping as castanets. John Fare, a lobotomized Canadian performance artist, that thought himself of snapping his lost fingers to a rhythm when made test in the Ramachandran mirrored box. And in fiction, there is an unnamed character on J.L.Borges’ The Garden of Forking Paths who can’t talk thus develops a whole communication system based on snapping.
Some people who use to snap fingers during a singing performance are Frank Sinatra, the 1970’s progressive rocker Gentel Giant, Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff from Philadelphia, Gail Wilson and Johnny Cash.
There is a classic scene on the film West Side Story where a performers group snap their fingers as a chorus. Will Smith, the host at Philadelphia's Live 8 concert in 2005, told his audience to snap their fingers at three-second intervals to mark the death of a malnourished, diseased child in Africa who, he confidently said, dies every three seconds. This later became the TV Snap Ads.
Snap music has also been labeled a southern “laid-back crunk”.
