Who is the Poppin Wizard of Drew Street?

You won’t find the Poppin Wizard on Dancing with the Stars. Instead,  the Poppin Wizard, a chunky-looking guy clad in Raiders cap and shirt – stars in several YouTube videos shot in the driveways, homes and weed-filled yards on Drew Street in Glassell Park, according to the person who uploaded the videos.  Drew Street is better known for gang-violence than for freestyle, robot, and popping styles of dance.  But, at least in these videos, the neighborhood serves as a stage for the Poppin Wizard, who is sometimes accompanied by dogs as well sidekicks named Manny and Termi.  The Poppin Wizard can also be found dancing in parking lots cluttered kitchen and a restroom. Where will the Poppin Wizard show up next?


  1. Way better than the girl dancing in the laundromat. Sammy just needs to tighten his belt so he won’t keep interrupting his moves by pulling up his pants.

    • I’m the girl in the arthritis commercial laundromat scene….been dancing since 1982 all the peeps in the video are OGs ….your stuff is dope…..however be respectful.

  2. Orale Very Firme!

  3. I liked it!

  4. Excellent!! The backgrounds were amusing as well. And the laundromat girl , she had some very unique moves. Totally enjoyed her too.
