Gwen Verdon gets crunk

Hat-tip to Carmen Van Kerckhove at Racialicious for pointing me to this hot mashup of Broadway hoofer Gwen Verdon and a young Southern rapper called Unk.

You don’t have to be a hip-hop fan to wanna watch this multiple times.

Brilliant! She's such an amazing dancer and you can Fosse's imprint in how she moves. Wish that man had lived to be able to have some fun with the music that came along after 1987.
