    I've had just about enough of "izz" injected into everyday words. Apparently somebody out there has decided that words aren't interesting enough as they are, so you should put "izz" after the first consonant sound in any given word:

    freak=frizzeak

    rock=rizzock

    and on and on.

    What is the point?

    I've added this one to my growing list of pet peeves.

    The Atlanta Olympic Mascot was named "Whatizit" at one point, but that's a whole different usage of iz.

    Its just a new turn on an old thing. Its just like pig latin. There are rules on how to form the words with this language. I'm sure my grandparents got annoyed when my parents thought pig latin was the biz-omb, even though they knew it was hella-dumb. [​IMG]

    It's a dialect of English; well, not technically a dialect - more of a bastardization by Snoop Dogg and his hizomies.

    Best use of this dialect is in a song by Tenacious D entitled "My Biznitch is The Shiznit"

    Regards,
     
  11. All I know is that I have been using Biznotch for many years now. I know that I say it with an "o" instead of an "i"..but that is how I learned it. besides, biznotch is more fun to say than biznitch.

    I could be wrong but I beleive this bastardization is actually called "Double Dutch". It is much older than many of today's "Rapperzz"

    How many O.G. Homies remember that song called "The Double Dutch Bus"?

    what the hell is jay-z talking about tho?

    the best interpretation i've heard was him comparing himself to jesus (jehovah in some language)

    any other ideas?

    If I remember right, there is a simple rule of inserting a "z" before every vowel, or something like that. When spoken quickly, it makes no sense at all to "outsiders". It goes back to at least the late 70's and originated in New York City. Where are all the NYC members? Some of them should be able to answer the nitty gritty details of the language.
