Producers wanted the slang that was spoken in the movie to be current and relevant to the time period in which the movie was released.

(Whatever words they used during filming might not have been in circulation by the time the film was released.) In order to play it safe, some of the Ebonics spoken in the movie was made up by the actors on the spot.
