In 2004, a rapper by the name of Cordazar Calvin Broadus– known to many of us as Snoop Dogg– released the mega-hit “”Drop It Like It’s Hot””. It was as an instant classic, banking off of its signature “”tongue clicking“” style and laconic lyrics. There are many things that Snoop might have been trying to express but according to the Urban Dictionary, he was most likely talking about one of the following:
(1) Referring to a dance move where a girl drops her posterior to the floor and dances with vigor.
(2) A basketball term for dropping shots through the hoop.
(3) A term for rappers when they drop lines/bars/rhymes that are hot.

As important as “”dropping it like it’s hot”” might be to a rapper of Snoop Dogg’s
caliber, locking a favorable (ie
. low) interest rate is just as critical to today’s home buyer. A rate lock
enables a buyer to lock in a low rate, providing a measure of protection from any future rate spikes that might occur while he or she is still searching for a property. If rates dip even further, a float down
will allow the buyer to take advantage of even lower rates, which can amount to substantial monthly savings.
All of this, and a bag of chips
can be secured by a lender like Shannon Bagshaw
and the crew at Loan South. Their Lock and Shop program is a pretty sweet deal:
– No Cost, No Risk
– Lock periods from 70 to 270 days
– Rate is protected
– One free float down within 30 days of closing
