slizzard (5)

adjective slang derivation; slang rhyming
The state of being drunk, intoxicated. It is used in informal contexts among college students and partiers in reference to getting drunk. It was first heard in the song “Like a G6”. There is previous reference to the probable root sliz which means “drink” though the origin of the word is unclear. It seems that sliz was altered to rhyme with blizzard in the refrain “Poppin bottles in the ice, like a blizzard/When we drink we do it right, getting slizzard” which is from the song “Like a G6” by Far East Movement. While to sliz means “to drink”, slizzard means “drunk,” so there was a derivational change as the grammatical category shifted from verb to adjective.
 
"When we drink we do it right, getting slizzard."
Etymology : The ending –zard acts like a derivational morpheme changing a verb to an adjective. It is probably added to the root sliz (slang for to drink) in order to rhyme with “blizzard”.
