1942 was probably best known as the title of a rap song performed by G-Eazy that appeared on multiple billboard charts. Have you ever wondered what this slang means and where it comes from?
Simply put, the slang term “1942” comes from the tequila, Don Julio 1942. It is a luxurious alcoholic product that is often touted to be top-class liquor. When used in a casual conversation or rap song, it often means high-quality alcohol or tequila. It can be used as:
“Your college graduation deserves some 1942.”
“Any 1942 would do since this day is a very special occasion.”
Its popularity has waned over the years but particular groups of liquor experts and rap stars still use it to this day.
