Hi I see the word chops around a lot. I know it referes to technical ability but what does it stand for? Where does the term originate?
CHOPS - i thought for a while it meant card handling with ordinary packet for ages :help:
UrbanDictionary defines it as an abbreviation of "proper respect." "Proper respect" had been previously shortened to "propers" in the 1960's (ref. Otis Redding/Aretha Franklin, "Respect"). Then, in the 1980's, it was shortened even further by the rap community to its current usage: "props".Nowadays, I hear the phrase "Props", as in "Props to you man....". What's the origin of that??
