One of the most recognisable gestures in Krump, this is hand gesture is called 'talking' and is normally used with a jab-like motion. The dancer might point to their mouth signifying they have something to say or gesture towards another dancer as a way to express who they are communicating to. Angles, placement and intensity can vary- just like the intonation of speech. Co-Creator of Krump, Tight Eyex explains that the talking gesture was born from the music they used to dance to, inspired by rapper Busta Rhymes with his fast and intense rapping style. Big Mijo, also a co-creator of Krump, has explained that the style/talking hand sign was the basis in which other Krump movements such as jabs were born from.
