The "Chopper" was another name for the Thompson sub machine gun (the "Tommy Gun"). Designed by US General John Thompson in 1918, it became infamous during the Prohibition era. The slang term was derived from the sound the weapon makes when being fired in full automatic mode, which makes a chopping sound. The word is now used in rap music to describe any kind of fully automatic sub machine gun.
Fiasco possesses his own collection of choppers. He instagramed a picture of his guns saying: "Hustlin's in my vains, you cannot stop it. Walking down the block with life in my pocket!"
"What's Up" by 4 Non Blondes has endured as one of the most popular songs of the '90s, but it wasn't a huge hit at the time and the band split after one album. Frontwoman Linda Perry went on to write hits for Pink and Christina Aguilera.
