Blacka’s World: Elephant Man Does The “Shmoney Dance”

Words by Blacka Di Danca

Elephant-Man-and-Bobby-Shmurda

There’s a new hit dance in hip-hop clubs and (pretty much everywhere else) right now, and it’s not the “dougie,” the “cat daddy,” and definitely not the “jerk.” By now we’re sure you’ve heard of the “Shmoney Dance,” made popular by Brooklyn rapper Bobby Shmurda. You might have even seen Team USA buss this one after winning basketball’s World Cup this weekend!

Ground Provisions: Ben & Jerry’s Bob Marley-Inspired Ice Cream

ben-jerrys-satisfy-my-bowl

Ben & Jerry’s is known for its Woodstock-inspired peace-and-love aesthetic, and ice cream flavors with goofy names occasionally inspired by peace-and-love minded musicians. (See the classic Cherry Garcia, and the more recent Phish Food). So it’s no surprise that the brand would introduce a flavor inspired by the music (or at least the concept) of Bob Marley.

After holding a contest to name the flavor, Ben & Jerry’s newest product (a tie-in with the 30th anniversary of Legend) has been dubbed Satisfy My Bowl, after “Satisfy My Soul,” the classic track from Marley’s 1978 album Kaya. Makes sense. What we’re a bit confused about is what the flavor—banana ice cream with caramel and cookie swirls and chocolate peace signs—has to do with Bob Marley or Jamaica. Sure, bananas grow in Jamaica, as they do across the Caribbean, but the fruit is not exactly the first thing that comes to mind when anyone thinks Jamaica. (As far as we know, Marley’s ice cream preferences are undocumented, that is if he partook in the treat at all).
