Intro to Memphisian 102

Thought amnesty. u dont have to think - let me entertain u.


Point of order: Ice cream in the background, the Chef, Raekwon of Wutang.

Ok by now yawl done had enough to go on Lamar Terrace and converse with some folk from the cut. But if you wanna blend up South Parkway in between Castalia Heights and Glenview Park, you may require a studier vocabulary so here goes.

1] AM – typically used as a universal pronoun and often precedes “body” or “thang”.

Example: Mane, I wish am body would step up to me jones talking that shit.

2] Ducat - Used to describe money or loot and believe it or not was used in Europe during the slave trade to represent 3.4 oz of gold coinage. Now, I don’t think most of my folk know this but this how me and mine use it.

Example: You got some ducats to put on this weed?

3] Afeared - used to connote the “A” as in the Latin” not or no” and linked toward being horrified. People who use such are typically raw dawg, venerated in their neighborhoods and referenced to not having Kool-Aid for blood.

Example: Jones, mane, bitch azz nigga thank jones afeared of him.

4] Lunchin – when a person aint thinking but still not crazy, just not aware. Really not ruminating to ones fullest potential and can likely get some one shot, hurt or killed.

Example: I dont fuck with Jones mane, he be lunchin’ .

5] Dat popped – in many places they may say high, drunk or fucked up. Folk in Memphis take it beyond the esoteric to described not knowing where you are or what happened. Can lead to fisticuffs or shooting on most occasions. Most cases used in the past tense.

Example: Mane you was dat popped last night.

6] Beenin – refers to how one is adroit in maneuvering a vehicle when driving using only the crease of the wrist to steer the vehicle.

Example: Jones, I was beenin that Cadillac.

7] Earl Campbell - the combination of 3 and 4 when shooting dice. The most desirable point in craps/

So a lil more on how jones her talk and why enjoy and have a great weekend.

Nicki Nicki Tembo said...

Yeah babe, three and four most coveted hit but what with that anxiety disorder my brotha suffers from? Imagine taking that hit, all 232 lbs...not so much. A sistah knows a lil sumptin' sumptin' about sports. I'm being silly, maybe that's a clue that I need to take my butt to bed.

Big Cheekz said...

I think I'm the one from Memphis, what anxiety disorder are we referring to...........

Good stuff?

MrsGrapevine said...

Thanks, but I think we need a longer list. Most of the time I understand, but sometimes, I need this list for a little help...

blackgirlinmaine said...

Ducats, I was familiar with since I use that from time to time myself but the others on the list are new to me.

Have a good weekend!

mrs. mary mack said...

Bombchell said...

wow, lol if i walked in, and only hear "that popped last night" if think of s crazy ass fun club, but now thanks, my idea has changed lol

sista gp said...

when is the pop quiz, professor?

KELSO'S NUTS said...

"Ducat" pronounced "Duckett" (as in Nurse Duckett of CATCH-22) I'm guessing. Ducats is a cross-over into "Runyonics" like "Fade" meaning "To Oppose."
