While some of you might have heard the term “4X” in rap, I think many are unaware of the origin and actual use case of this slang. It acts similarly to the “4L” rap slang. It primarily stands for the phrase “for example.” You may use it like:
“You should always respect people because you never know. 4X, a mother struggling to provide might look tired out and drowsy.”
“Never forget your roots. 4X, you should pay homage to your forefathers because without them, there is no you.”
Recent times, and the improvement of texting limitations, suggest that this slang is no longer popular.
