I wrote a post over on the Mixpak blog about the continued success of the Vybz Kartel single “Half On A Baby” and how it’s become the de facto soundtrack to a new dance, the Bronx Wine, that’s become super popular with kids in New York City.

Hundreds of kids of have uploaded videos of themselves doing the Bronx Wine to “Half On A Baby” (see a few examples here, here, here and here).
