It was one of my favorite movies because of the vibe of it My little cousin was always coming over and his name is Smeeze I was trying to figure out a name, and I looked at my cousin, and I was just like the dance is a Smeeze When did you start noticing you’re getting popular in mainstream culture? Well, I was doing it in battles first. First mainstream video I did it in was function remix with e40. Then like I had help of my teammates Phil and Lavish, they went viral on Instagram doing it. Then the Jabbawockeez had did it My mentor Swag Pitt, my brother Frenchie, He made a hashtag called smeeze everywhere, and then my brother Milla made the official smeeze song Was there anyone you feel like had a particular influence on how the smeeze became so popular? What really got it mainstream was my brother Frenchie Frenchie put it on 2k. It’s been on there for four years, the Ellen show, my boy Pricelessdaroc, P-Lo Swag Pitt, and the Jabbawockeez is what made it go Main Main But you know, I want to see everybody do my dance tag me, I want y’all to tag STEEZY Thank you all for rockin with me and doing my dance and supporting me.
