Drake Does Carlton Banks Impression With Mid-Show Dance Moves

Drake has displayed some Fresh Prince of Bel-Air influence, hitting the famous Carlton Banks dance during a recent concert.

At a show in Pittsburgh on Friday (February 16), the 6 God showcased some vintage moves, tapping into his inner Carlton with abandon.


It’s clear that both Drizzy and the audience were feeling his performance, with the rap star closing his eyes and bouncing to the groove while the audience moshed along.

Check out the clip below.

Drake will be hoping Alfonso Ribeiro, who played Carlton Banks, doesn’t take him to court for his use of the dance. Despite being caught on camera in 2012 saying he “stole” the move from Courtney Cox and Eddie Murphy, the Fresh Prince star sued Epic Games six years later when the dance appeared in Fortnite.

He later voluntarily dropped the lawsuit, so it looks like Drizzy might be in the clear.


This isn’t the first time that Drake has gone viral while on his It’s All a Blur: Big As the What? Tour alongside J. Cole.

Earlier this month, he explained the thinking behind his impossible-to-miss outfit from the opening night of the run.


During an early performance in Tampa, Florida, Drake took the stage at the Amalie Arena and addressed those who had been making fun of what appeared to be a dinosaur spine costume he wore two nights prior.

“Everybody had jokes yesterday asking why I wore the spine out here,” he told the crowd. “You want me to tell you why I wore the spine out here? I wore the spine because most of these guys that I look in the eyes are spineless as fuck, so I had to wear the whole backbone.”

He concluded: “Plus, we made that shit out of the skeletons you got in your closet, so be careful who you talking to because I will turn up.”

During that same opening weekend, the “One Dance” rapper seemingly took a shot at former fling Rihanna by refusing to perform their song “Work.”


The Toronto native told the crowd he no longer performs his hit collaboration with RiRi. Instead, he got the crowd to do the heavy lifting and sing along to the record themselves.

“I don’t sing this song anymore,” he said while performing in a flying cage when “Work” began to play. “You can sing it for me.”

Despite the drama, recent setlists have all included “Work.”
