7. Gully Creepa

Devised by the late Ice, championed by Elephant Man and immortalized by Usain, the Gully Creepa imagines the movements of a devious figure creeping his way through one of Kingston’s treacherous gullies. Basically, use one foot like a roller, while moving your back and shoulder, twist your face up in a knot, like you’re about to do something sneaky, and creep forward to the beat, changing to the opposite foot. Creep your way upwards, then forward, putting yourself into it more like the terrain is getting tougher, then creep backwards.
