Is this "twerk"? Apparently, the 305 doesn't know.

C'mon, Miami...

Of all the places in America that should possess an encyclopedic understanding of what it means to "dance in a sexually provocative manner while in a squat, thrusting the hips and popping that booty," we'd expect the 305 to be numero uno con ese culo.

And yet it seems that we were just as befuddled by the twerk fad of 2014 as the rest of them skinny-bum chumps across this clueless, Caucasian-majority country.

The proof: We asked Google "how to twerk," like, a billion times.

Jeopardy! and Alex Trebek Dis Miami's Ice "Billion" Berg as "Not a Successful Rapper"

Alex-Trebek_Diss_Ice-Billion-Berg_Rapper_Miami_2014.jpg
Two actors and a successful rapper. Win $200 if you can tell which is which.

Ice "Billion" Berg is "so fucking fly" that he "can stand on the ceiling." And though standing on the ceiling is not one of the listed Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, given that Berg is going to buy your bitch and start claiming your daughter -- never mind that all his whips are from across the border -- it's tough to suggest that Berg is not successful.

And yet Monday night's Jeopardy! included the category "Not a Successful Rapper" in which three rapper names were supplied and contestants had to identify the one out-of-place or made-up name from the list. The $200 clue (one-fifth of a "stack," for our readers using the metric system) was "Ice Cube, Ice Berg, Ice T."

What We Learned About DJ Khaled from the "Hold U Down" Video

Still from DJ Khaled's new video "Hold You Down"
DJ Khaled is going to give this girl a bunch of money, even though she looks totally creeped out by him.
It may be Monday, but it's never too early in the work week for a sex anthem.

DJ Khaled is holdin' u down till the weekend with the premiere of his latest video, "Hold U Down," featuring Chris Brown, Jeremih, Future, and August Alsina -- four of the silkiest voices in the modern R&B scene.

The visual is pretty standard in that it's an over-sexed advertisement for Khaled's copious commercial endorsements, but in case you didn't see his ground-breaking mini-movie for "No New Friends," Khaled is kind of a film entrepreneur. He lets us in to another level of his personal life with this six-minute doozy, and while watching, we learned some strange things that can never be unlearned.

James Brown stars in your strangest acid trip on Miami Vice episode.
Hit me!

The new James Brown biopic Get On Up is gettin' on up them screens today, and any soul-addict should hit the theaters, at least sneak in, to see Chadwick Boseman sweat his ass off while doing right by the Hardest Working Man in Show Business.

All the great music and personal intrigue aside, there's even more reason why we as Miamians should support the film. Back in the day, James Brown had mad love for our city, and we have a special, if not somewhat embarrassing, connection with the multi-talented soul man.

Every boss has a favorite saying.

But only the Bawse Rick Ross is so serious about the power of words that he gets a fave phrase tattooed on his face.

Indeed ... Over the holiday weekend, the man and mogul born William Leonard Roberts II commissioned California-based ink-and-needle artist Nikko Hurtado to write "'Rich Forever," as the rapper explains, "under my lip."

David Guetta Moves to Edgewater: "This Is a Little More Cool, a Little More Cultural"

Hey, what's David Guetta looking at? Why, it's the Wynwood Art District!

David Guetta is something of a perverse pioneer. He's a true trailblazer, even if we don't all necessarily want to follow his path.

Several years ago, the scraggly-bearded Frenchman brought dance music to the masses unlike anyone before him. And today, he still sits atop the pop charts, alongside Miami natives and residents like Pitbull, Flo Rida, and Lil Wayne. So why not join the rest of these hitmakers by moving to the MIA?

However, unlike most other stars, David Guetta hasn't chosen a long-established celebrity enclave. The "Fuck Me, I'm Famous" DJ is once again poised to lead the way -- but not in a musical sense. He is joining the real estate takeover of non-SoBe Miami, essentially becoming the latest face of mainland Miami gentrification.

Get ready, hipsters ... Guetta is officially moving to Edgewater.
