Girls who know how to twerk and could use a cool $50,000 to go to school are in luck since artist Juicy J has started a competition for the lady who can move the best.
The rapper took to his Twitter account on Thursday to share the news, according to HipHopDX.com, but as of 7 p.m. EDT, it seems to have been deleted. Juicy J supposedly wrote: “im giving out a 50k scholarships to the best chick that can twerk”
For those who are unsure, twerking is a new dance crazy where someone shakes their upper and lower hips in and down motion so they jiggle or bounce. It can be done slow or fast depending on the dance beat and is supposed to be done in a sexual manner.
The Three 6 Mafia star, whose real name is Jordan Jordan Houston, didn’t release the details surrounding the charity, like how girls can apply and where or whom they would send their twerking video to.
The artist, 38, might have started the competition to promote his new album “Stay Trippy,” which is slated to drop on Tuesday, Aug. 27. He also recently tweeted that he was nominated for the Best Combo BET Award, along with Miguel, Drake, 2 Chainz, Kendrick Lamar, J Cole and ASAP Rocky.

Miley Cyrus famously twerked on stage at a Juicy J concert in in Los Angeles, Cali. earlier this year and it seems he wants the dance craze to continue with his help. It seems he is making the scholarship offer to would-be students.
