    It's originally a French word i believe, hence the pronunciation.

    oh ok, cuz that brotha spit that schitt out like his name was Jacques Pierre Jenkins... i didn't even know it was english! lolol
    see, this is why a lot of tests and such things are biased... i bet 96% of soulstrut is familiar with this word, but it might as well be the Klingon language to hood people such as myself. I'm sure I've seen it in print, but NEVER heard anybody say that schitt outloud. I must say, I do love words though. Gotta add that one to my list on my Dictionary app. Thanks, Soulstrut!

    Has anyone ever used this word in a Hip Hop song? I'm being serious.

    I remember when I heard someone use "fulcrum" in a rap once. I was excited because who says "fulcrum" in a rap, you know?

    Only some dude who has all the accoutrement.

    Yeah. I remember being a bookish kid geeking off of MC Lyte using "thus far."

    This reminds me of a long-standing query from the one Terry_Clubbup: Has the verb "effervesce" ever been used in a rap? I can think of a couple instances of the noun "effervescence" ("Old To The New" and "Fatty Girl"), but not the verb. It seems like the kind of shit that surely E-40 must have used at one point--"I effervesce skraight lanquid, mayne" or something--but I can't say that with any certaintidity.

    Hey, I've got one for the old-schoole dudes: For a long time I thought those coats were "Cordurfields" or "Corterfields" or something like that--some weird brand name--but am I correct that they're actually "quarter field" coats? Like, a type of coat rather than a brand of coat? Anyone who can help me out, the next time you're in Chicago we can dip into Marshall's and I'll rack you some slightly irregular British Walkers.

  • I definitely used to think "brought to you by" at the end of shows like wheel of fortune (this program brought to you by), was broughtuyubi, and I had no clue what the word meant.

    Mike G (I think) used the word on the Jungle Brothers "How Ya Want It" but not as a verb. I believe the line was "If you want to test the effervesce." At least I think that's the line. Realer headz than I might be able to correct me.

    i mistakenly hit edit instead of reply and totally effed up my last poast, but anyway...

    on my upcoming random rap album i have a song i did back in 1989 called "grandiloquence" in which i use words like passado, incommunicado (yep, i made those two rhyme), excogitate, preliterate, farrago, vociferate, immolate, inculcate, esurient and illaudable. yet no knowledge of accoutrement, 'specially not said in the faux french accent that that fool on tv used in a very grandiloquent manner. as i poasted up above, after he said that schitt MLK's kids were lookin' at homeboy like

    Cosmo, you with yours, son!

    Rakim used it (again as a noun) in an ill-conceived strictly-for-the-ladies jam off his 18th Letter comeback:

    I'm in effect mode, I keep the ep sewed
    When you express your finesse to your dress code
    Every step's a pose, you've been blessed and it shows
    My interest grows, the effervesce explodes[/b]
    Because this chick's characteristic's mystic
    Hips are thick, just a little bit of lipstick
    Can't resist it, description Egyptian smile
    Queen of the Nile, that means she dipped in style




    What was the God thinking?
