This work was able to conclude that slang has been in existence for a long time and is the informal language of musicians which could remain from generations to generations. It could build on its register, add new forms and replacing old forms with new ones. Certain standard English word denote certain interpretations could have their meaning altered when used as slang’s they become connotational rather than denotational.
Finally, slang can be fun to listen  to musicians are to be admired for their creative tendencies towards conjuring new slang expression. The speaker is bestowed upon a linguistic capability, he is caught in the spell, the playfulness and fun-filling adventure of using slang
