Memphis Rappers Is On Record Saying "Cap" "Trap" and "Stain/Stang" Before ATL & Chicago
 

 
Been reading a lotta goofy sh*t

93-94


"Because we really love to make stang/stain", Mr. high cappa, don't make me touch ya mane"



1992
"Gossiping a*s bi*ch always on a dope dealers jock, Just because she slangin yay, got the freaky bi*ch high cappin, acting like she stuck up, know she goin that's why lil pimpin jackin, on that hoe"

1:41

92-93
"And yo frontin is another word for high cappin"
"And see, all we n*ggas was thinking about was making a stang"

First verse


93-94

"Let's Let's make a stain stain stain"


95

"All up in a n*gga face high cappin like you the mane, get up bout yo hawg"

50 seconds in

96

"I swang and bang through the projects, checking my traps while steady just breaking these tricks"

1:42

97
"I'm taking cheese from the trap like Jerry robbin Tom"

Opening line

Its some older references to trap from about 93-94 but im too high to find them sh*ts right nowimage Memphis used trap in regards to pimpin too not just dope.

I'll try to post some more later

Geto Boys was saying cap in the late 80s tho



People steal so much sh*t from Texas they don't even realize it. I'm talking bout people remixing sh*t that's 20-30 years old.

You beat me to my first post.

I know that sh*t was HEAVY in Texas and n*ggas in Cali was saying that sh*t too.

I'm not the biggest fan of Texas rap but any Texas fans can come through and drop some gems.

It's all for the culture.

Everybody used to say “high cappin”. I used to a*sociate it with Texas rap but that’s southern rap in general.

I dont feel like a couple of words is enough to be reachin for props. That whole memphis era was the sh*t tho. I still listen to that today. I was about to play king of the playas ball this week. But as far as slang i heard high cappin in texas raps first and i remember some memphis sh*t too but suave house and rapalot was big back then. Really i a*sume most slang came from e40 or religious new york rappers.

There was a small gap in between drill prime- prime trap era where n*ggas used cap in the Chicago way (capping meaning you bought something) and the current accepted definition

it’s kind of interesting the way slang changes so quickly

You shouldn't

A lot of this slang be older than you and them n*ggas put together. I'm all about clearing up myths around ADOS/FBA culture. Let's get down to the very roots

Post some Texas sh*t up n*gga

"bi*ches say we high side because we ride by and don't speak"

You big mad or lil mad? I dont care about that ados fba sh*t. I have no idea why you need to parse out slang words. Just post some good music and get off the bullsh*t.

o/p done started some sh*t

He's not wrong. Memphis originated those terms ATL may have used "trap" in some songs too, but they didn't make a whole sub-genre til T.I. & Jeezy, Gucci came out

Now this what we here for my boy

Like I say you beat me to my first post. I was bout to tell Texas n*ggas to come fu*k it up

All of this underrated, neglected, and written off 80s and 90s southern rap need to be documented because a lot of this slang gettin popular on social media these days comes from that.

The correlation between Chicago saying STAIN and Memphis saying STANG is true as sh*t too.

If you KNOW you know

For the people not knowing: Stain/stang = Robbing somebody

We call it jonin in Alabama but I been seeing n*ggas from the south all and up the east coast that say they called roasting capping back in the day.

All this sh*t is interesting to me the way our culture travels and changes from state to state
