Starting out as a dance crew, The Ranger$ began posting up their Jerk videos to YouTube and the craze that is Jerk Music thus began. With their channel being viewed over 8 million times, the argument can easily be made that the video featuring their Jerk moves to the tune of the New Boyz “You’re a Jerk!” helped the movement break the glass ceiling.
Now it’s their time with the release of their first project “Jerkin’ Is A Habit Vol. 1” In Stores November 10th. With a full length album featuring some of the hottest names in the Jerk movement (Baby Dollz, JHawk, Indigo Vanity, Cliff Savage, Yong 3rd and more) the package also contains a 3 hour DVD of Behind the Scenes footage, Classic YouTube Videos and even Lessons on how to Jerk dance by the Ranger$ themselves.
While the singles “Number 1 Dime” and “Around She Goes” are already receiving over 100,000 plays and downloads , the group is determined to prove that they are not boxed in by their sub-genre and willingly push the boundaries.
Very few hip hop fans and critics remember that there are 4 elements of Hip Hop. Rapping, DJing, Graffiti and Dancing. In the midst of the gangsta movement that catapulted Hip Hop into the next realm, several of the elements seemed to fall on the wayside. Until the last few years, Hip hop dancing had yet to be embraced once again by the masses.
Enter Jerk Music.
It pulsates through the airwaves and video websites with hundreds of thousands, and in some cases, MILLIONS of plays and views. You cannot avoid it.
Front and center of the movement, is the multi-talented super crew “The Ranger$” with “Jerkin’ Is A Habit Vol. 1”.
