These people with their "swag". Of course the OP is a flaming F , but , nonetheless, there is nothing cool about talking like a wigguh.

Mark Walberg right now talks like a real man, not like some douche.

It sounds horrible, you could argue it shows insecurity to seek confirmation for your statement every 5 seconds you speak.

It's Ebonics. It's not really seeking confirmation it's part of the language. You know what I mean.

It's more like a pause in between sentences.

I can actually talk like this too.

It's equivalent to biting your nails, nothing more than a bad habbit some people can't stop with because they started as kids.

To me it's annoying and distracting from whatever the person is really trying to say.

He sounds similar to Vanilla Ice in the sense that it sounds false and completely put on.

You can't really fake that kind of talk. I think he HAD some street influence but no longer.

That's the Boston street talk.
