This Week's Word: Shabalaboopty 

Surveying the latest in Yay Area hip-hop slang.

Pronounced: Sha-ba-la-BOOP-tee

Part of Speech: Interjection

As Heard On: Droop-E & B-Slimm (featuring Mistah F.A.B.), "Out Here"

What It Do: Another phrase invented by "Nig-Latin" wordsmith Mistah F.A.B., "shabalaboopty" has no fixed meaning. It is appropriately used in situational contexts like its predecessors "fa sheezy" and is often intended to be the last word on a subject.

Example: "Yo, dummy, check out the new stunnarific grill-piece I just scooped at Gold Teeth Master; that shit is so ridiculously blinged-out, it's, like, shabalaboopty!"

See Also: "fa sheezy," "fo' sho'," "fa real."
