Fo Shizzle

220; folk etymology
Black slang term for agreeing wholeheartedly. Has become somewhat of a joke when said in conversation. Dave Chappelle of “Chappelle’s Show” commonly pokes fun at black society and often uses the phrase “Fo Shizzle” to do so. Snoop Dogg (or his writers), the phrase’s coiner, was probably looking for a word to shake up the community, to be rebellious and original.
 
Guy on phone: Yo dog, we on the way to do the video Snoop: Fo shizzle!
Etymology : Folk etymologized from “fo sho” which was folk etymologized from “for sure”.
Source : Snoop Dogg song, “Beautiful”
