Young Money's Drake introduced ladies to the "Drizzy 3 Stroke" last year and with spring finally here, the 25 year-old rapper has unleashed his newest dance move; The Wheelchair Jimmy.
Footage of the rapper's newest dance move landed online Friday (March 23).
Dancing has always been a part of hip-hop. From the Pee-Wee Herman to the Superman to the Dougie, no superstar rapper's profile is complete without a signature dance move. While on his Club Paradise Tour in early March, Drake introduced his new dance step called "The Wheelchair Jimmy" during his performance of the Lil Wayne-assisted song, 'The Motto.' The dance is quite simple to do. You use your hands to pretend that you're pushing yourself in a wheelchair and you hop to the beat. The dance was inspired by Drake's character Jimmy Brooks from the popular teen show 'Degrassi: The Next Generation,' who was paralyzed in a wheelchair after being shot by a fellow student.

Last year, Drizzy broke down the science behind his "Drizzy 3 Stroke."
"It's the last moment, you gotta like really, close [in]," Drake explained to radio host Tim Westwood. "[laughs] [You're a one stroke guy?] That's not what they say out here. [laughs] I heard you put it down man, 'Timmy Tim Stroke' over here. Yeah. Co-signed. That's what the girls say. It's more sort of a conclusive moment, you know. What happens during the act, there's a lot of things. There's a lot of different things you can do to make it enjoyable. The '3 Stroke' it just happens to be my finisher move. You know when you used to play video games like Mortal Kombat and you needed some kind of finisher move? That's what I'm saying, that's what I'm trying to put out there. I was just trying to give [the London women at my concert] something to enjoy. That's all. It's important that they have a vivid moment right before 'What's My Name.'" ("Tim Westwood TV")
Prior to his explanation, Drake warmed up a crowd of screaming London fans with his depiction of the move.
Drizzy Drake is doing his thing worldwide and letting people know about his special tricks in the bedroom. While Aubrey Drake Graham is on his Thank Me Later tour, he touched down in London's Hammersmith Apollo yesterday (Saturday 8th January 2010), seducing his female audience with his favorite sexual positions. One particular move which Drake favors is called the 'Drizzy 3 Stroke' where the rapper says he flips the female over, gives the lady a 1,2,3 motion, leans over and says "Oooo na na, What's My Name?"

Back in 2010, the rap star reflected on his overly friendly "Degrassi" television image.
"I watch clips of myself on 'Degrassi' and I'm like, I can't believe people look at this guy and hold me as one of the most respected rappers out there!," he explains in the magazine. "But being Canadian and an actor aren't things to overcome any more - they add to my story...I definitely see [the Will Smith comparisons.] Except that my hip-hop is different from his...When the stars align, anything is possible."
