E-40? Back 40

All due respect to E-40 for his skills, but he’s trippin on this: “Creative terminology like ‘pop ya collar,’ ‘it’s all good,’ ‘fo’ shezzy, fo’ shizzle’ and ‘what’s up pimpin’’ all came from E-40.” I know that’s just a Warner Bros. press release, but for years he’s been making claims like this. Give it a rest, dude. I can prove at least two of those weren’t invented by you. I’d bet the other two weren’t, either.
