"Up Jump tha Boogie" (Music)

"What do you say, dog? You ready to get this party started? You ready to burn this mother down? Up, jump… tha boogie."

This phrase comes from the first-ever hip-hop single, "Rapper's Delight" by the Sugarhill Gang. Far from saccharine, this 1979 song paved the way for mainstream rappers to use nonsensical lingo, spell out words, and inform the world exactly what they "got." In recent years, others have begun up jumping the boogie as well, like Kid Rock, who pinched the expression for a hit, and a cute little old grandma, who made good use of it in The Wedding Singer. Troy knows his jive, man.
