Watch Joel Embiid hit his Shmoney Dance [Video]


I already let you know earlier this summer that the shmoney dance would be front and center this coming season for both the NFL and NBA. So when my new favorite social media follow, Joel Embiid breaks it out.

In a recent interview with Billboard, Embiid discussed his love for the hit song, “Hot N**ga” by rapper Bobby Shmurda that started this dance craze:

In late August, Embiid changed his official Twitter name to Joel “Shmurda” Embiid and started tweeting about the Shmoney Dance, his love of the rapper’s rising Hot 100 anthem “Hot N—a” running deep enough to make the injured center get up and move.:

“Every time I hear the song, I’m just like, ‘Shmoney daaance!’” Embiid exclaims. “It doesn’t matter where I’m at. Even if I’m just on the street, I don’t care. I just start doing the shmoney dance.” The shmoney dance has also helped Embiid bond with his new Sixers teammates: “Whenever Bobby Shmurda comes on, everyone would just want to do the shmoney dance. I think that’s something we all like.”
