if did Detroit did start it, ya'll n*ggaz wasn't reppin it right....footworkin is as much apart of the Chi as the wind. Cats from the D can't take that from us, next they'll be hating on some Detroit got colder pimps type sh*t. When I see a video wit some Detroit n*ggaz reppin doin the "Jit" or whatever ya'll call it then I'll think about it, but until then, the Chi put that "footwork" or that "jittin" on the map so keep hatin and come with proof, not hearsay

youtube.com.... Jit... you will see detroiters jitting.. and no the D would never say we have colder pimps cuz we arent on that type of sh*t..footworking has become a part of chi's culture but it is a branch off from jitting which started in the D is all im saying.. the CHI took our stuff and made it into sumthin different that fit them..agreed?

I hope yall know this thread is ridiculous. Regardless of what city "started" Jukin/Jittin/Footwork or whatever else name you wanna call it, its all part of OUR (our being black/African American etc) culture. In all honesty Detroit and Chicago are not that far apart, like somebody else stated earlier its a regional thing, I got fam from GI/CHI/MILL and they all juke, granted its all a lil different but its all similar. Its like n*ggas in Atl arguin about which zone started that snap sh*t (and no, I dont fux wit that sh*t).

Instead of arguing about the lil dumb sh*t, we should all be happy that we gettin some shine, and while were gettin our shine we need to put our brothers and sisters on in the other cities.

LMAO. FUNNY ARTICLE, FOOTWORKING BEEN OUT SINCE THE 40s-60s.. a way to get minorities off the streets and to focus on something positive, im glad footwork/juking in chicago is still underground. what a biased article though ''chicago's footworking aint sh*t but a cheap knock off of jitting'' .. im just stating my opinion.

Whoever started this page thanks, I guess I learned the history of the Footwork or Jittin, it originated at the Savoy Ballroom in Harlem in 1926 and it was called the Lindy Hop and back then they used to call it swingin. When a dude by the name of Benny Goodman (Chicago native) became the "King of Swing" he changed the name Lindy Hop (named after Charles Lindburgh, the famous aviator)to the Jitterbug in the late 1930's. Cab Calloway (born in NY, but resided in Chicago) also made a song called the "Jitterbug" back then for the dance. D-town do ya history!!!

Chi-town stand up!!!!!

hmmm; shyt's serious out there in The D and Chi-City. Around here in VA; we're just trying to hustle man, we don't even have dances to claim as our own. Most people around here just business minded. It's either "get money or live with your momma forever" kinda mentality. Much respect to both cities.

As a result of jazz music making its profound declaration in clubs throughout the 1920s’, a dance called the ‘Jitterbug’ penetrated black communities nationwide. The ‘Jitterbug’ dance, with its basic form, had many distinct styles and names, depending on it's place of origin-- the ‘Charleston,’ of South Carolina, ‘The Lindy Hop,’ of New York, ‘The Shag,’ of New Orleans, and 'Black Bottom,’ of Detroit. ..
^^ It begins...
This era of ‘jitting’ was the direct result of the 1967 riots and the widespread dumping of heroin into the black community,young children whose parents were on drugs had to fend for themselves began to cultivate their own pseudo-families-- gangs....Gangs sending out their declarations of territory and decrees of murder via ‘jitting’ at house parties, clubs or on the streets, where even innocent people were sometimes injured or in some cases murdered.

Started in the 20's.. cought on as a movement in the 60's.. Chi town silence.:thumbsdow... but i still got luv for my chi n*ggas..
thank you
