Every neighborhood in America at that time had some form of this jargon.
You can hear examples of this idiom in the hit songs the Double Dutch Bus, Roxanne, Roxanne, and, in the ’90s, Snoop Dogg popularized the izzle version of the slang.
Jeru takes it to the next level with “WIZUN” rocking the whole rhyme using the IZZ Slang from his Brooklyn E.N.Y neighborhood.
â€œMe and my friends use to talk like this all day when I was growing up in the hood; we had many intricate versions of this lingo, making it almost impossible for anyone the wasn’t in the clique to understand.
This is the beginner level; I wouldn’t wanna blow your mind too much.â€
