The liberation of Young thug and Young Stoner Lives Slime Language 2 The album came with a lot more than A-list rapper features and a 24-song tracklist. The effort also sparked the #SkiChallenge, thanks to Thugger himself.
Just before the LP hit streaming platforms last Friday (April 16), a video was shared via Instagram of the rhyme from Atlanta in what appears to be a studio doing ski moves on his track. “Ski” starring Gunna. The clip, which was uploaded to the Stoner Youth Life Records The IG page of March 28 is captioned “What’s the name of this challenge?” The challenge then adopted the name of #SkiChallenge.
More than two weeks later Young thug introduced line dancing, it began to come to life. Diddy was one of the first artists to take the #SkiChallenge and publish it on their IG. In her clip, which was uploaded just before SL2 arrived, the mogul is seen doing his own variation of the dance where he later leans forward and is pulled back by his son Christian Combs, who clings tightly to Diddy’s hoodie so Puff doesn’t face to the plant on the ground. His other son, Justin Combs, enters the frame of the video shortly after.
Diddy captioned the clip: “Soundtrack of the Week – Skiii 🖤⛷ It’s different with Take two! Slime Language 2 now available !!! @ thuggerthugger1 @gunna @princejdc @kingcombs #LOVE.”
Future, which makes an appearance on SL2“Superstar,” also shared video footage of himself participating in the #SkiChallenge. Unlike the moves Thugger and Diddy posted, Hendrix put a different kind of sauce on the future viral dance while rocking a cream dress.
While Diddy and Future are members of the hip-hop community who are committed to Young thugThugger’s challenge, which Thugger pushed via social media and encouraged others to join, celebrities outside of the rap space are joining in on the fun.
Actor and comedian Kevin hart posted a video of himself trying his hand at the #SkiChallenge on Monday April 19th. Hart captioned his post, “I decided to go skiing tonight ….. this shit is going hard.”
Viral dances to rap songs like Drake’s #InMyFeelingsChallenge—And most recently with Soulja Boy’s # SheMakeItClap — have taken over the internet in recent years.
