The Rapper Who Created The John Wall Dance Passed Away Last Weekend

Sure, it was John Wall that popularized the dance move now commonly known as the "John Wall Dance," but he didn't do it alone. It was Louisville rapper Kenzo who first noticed a man named Anthony "Sugar Shizz" Talbert pull it off. Kenzo decided to insert the move into this music video, and the rest, as they say, is history.

So it's with sadness that I pass along to you all that "Sugar Shizz" died last Saturday, three days after being shot. Many of the details are still hazy, but it's still sad news. I wonder how Wall himself will take it.
