Respeck

What does respeck mean?

Respect

Respeck is a slang term that is purposeful misspelling of "respect" that means respect. It comes from Louisiana rapper Birdman who pronounces respect without the "t."

The term gained popularity after Birdman made an appearance on the The Breakfast Club (an urban radio show in NYC) in April 2016. During the show he had a meltdown demanding that the show's hosts stop making fun of him and put some "respeck" on his name. The "put some respeck on my name" saying became popular as people adopted the new pronunciation and spelling of the word.
