Believe me, I know ATL prolly been on it since the 60s and 70s too. Its some pre 96 trap references from Memphis too I just can't think of the tracks.

We don't really know if Memphis coined the term either but it seems like it was a*sociated with pimping more than dope in its origin. I feel like it could have been used in a lot of different areas in the 60s and 70s.

Pimp game was skrong as fu*k in Atlanta too though. You can tell just by some of the natives accents and animations when n*ggas be talkin. Like that old a*s n*gga Bass be wit Casino. ATL got pimp bones in they body.
Most of the Slang from Back then comes from PIMP Culture.....My Grandfather was Well Known Pimp Gangster from Harrisburg,Pa,,,,His Old a*s Used to Talk like that...I aint know what the fu*k he used to be talking bout when i was Teenager

ATL took that Pimp Talk Flipped it to they own sh*t....

ATL has aways been known as Black Mecca of The South Since like 1800s

Seem like trap was where you hid your sh*t at during this time. Now its morphed into the whole act of selling dope when it seems to have been rooted in old school ADOS pimp culture in its genesis

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
Midwest we say joaning too.

You would a*sume all of this sh*t come from Hip Hop but I really don't think it do. This sh*t is bigger than Hip Hop. Black American culture is deep.

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
capping in chicago mean talking, or doing dumsh*t, it just now started meaning lying from ATL

Ehhhh there’s really no point in this OP.

It wasn’t made out to be like it is today.

Same like Trappin was said in the 90s too, but didn’t become what it is until TI, jeezy, Gucci

Bro, you're a clown, and I'm not from any foreign country goofy. I was raised on the Westside of Chicago and 4th Ward in ATL, I'm also a registered gun owner, you put your hands on me in real life your a*s is getting shot, and I will take full advantage of Castle Law since I live in the State of GA but let's be serious we will never meet. Now, stop the trolling little n*gga and go play with your bi*ch because I don't have time to go back and forth with trolls online. This is my last reply but you're a clown so I know you're going to respond but when I see your name pop up I'm just going to ignore you little n*gga so it sucks that I will get the last word and you won't! #CheckmateLOL

All these words been passed around within the culture. If you from America (U.S.) and you Black we done all used this sh*t. But you know we always bringing some new Lingo to the game, folks always trying to get the new sh*t n*ggas saying so they can copy us. But we switch the sh*t up so much, can't never really keep up
