DAP???



If you're like me, you've spent the last several months watching PTI and saying to yourself, "What in the damn hell damn heck damn devil is 'DAP'?".

According to several 'hip-hop' dictionaries, DAP is short for 'Dignity and Pride' and is actually from the '70s. 'Gimme some DAP' is shorthand for 'Gimme some skin' or 'Give me a high-five my soul brother'.

Any way you break it down, it points out how truly in touch Wilbon is with the hip-hop culture of today. Look for him to break out the Freddie 'Boom Boom' Washington-isms by the middle of the year.

Nope... never had to wonder about that one. I used to use it all the time back in the day (80s and 90s). The way he ususally uses it means 'credit' or 'props'. Seems like most people switched to using 'props' in the late 90s
