The milly rock gained popularity during the 2015 NFL season, along with the Dab, and clearly Kirk has been following along closely. Showing his trendy side and epic dance moves, Kirk broke out the milly rock and also “hit the Quan” during his performance, and fans went totally crazy over it. Who knew he could move like this!?
Kirk is currently on the road for his 20 Years In One Night tour and has been shocking fans night after night by incorporating modern and well-known dance moves into his show. And if you’re not familiar with Kirk’s work, here’s a way you might know him — he worked with Kanye West on his album, The Life of Pablo, and performed with the rapper during his Saturday Night Live performance on Feb. 13.

The singer got some flack and judgment for working with Yeezy, but took to Instagram to defend himself afterward.
“Kanye is not me. I am not him. He is my brother I am proud to do life with,” he wrote on Instagram. “No sprints, but Marathons; like most of us are on. Before one song was released, I was crucified because my brother asked me to take a picture. Again “no Kanye, you’re not good enough”? No. That is a dangerous message I believe we send to the world when our posture is that they have to meet certain requirements before they are worthy to kiss the ring. It says people are not redeemable, forgivable or candidates for grace. That my friend is religious. I will not turn my back on my brother. I will love him, prayerfully grow with him. However long he’ll have me, and however long the race takes. To a lot of my Christian family, I’m sorry he’s not good enough, Christian enough, or running at your pace…and as I read some of your comments, neither am I. That won’t stop me from running. Pray we win.”
