About

The "Notti Bop" Dance or Notti Boppin' is a dance popularized on TikTok set to the diss track "Notti Bop" by Kyle Richh where the dancer mocks punching themself in the ribs rhythmically as the lyrics, "Notti Boppin, punchin' my hips" play. When done in a group, the other members of the group often also mock punching the dancer in the ribs as they fall to the ground. The song, which references the death by stabbing of 14-year-old drill rapper Notti Osama, was previewed by Richh in October 2022 in a video where he also does the dance for the first time. The dance, which mocks the way Notti died, spread over the course of October, with TikTokers often doing it with authority figures who are unaware of its context.
