A moniker for the recently renamed Willis Tower in Chicago, formerly known as Sears Tower from 1973-2009.

Used by Chicagoans to avoid using the name Willis Tower.

Similar in structure to The Artist Formerly Known as Prince, which the music artist Prince crafted for legal reason to produce music outside the control of his corporate music label, until such time as he could regain his rightful name.
Passenger: Could you please take me to Willis Tower?
Cabbie: What you talkin bout, Willis?

1. A close approximation of the sound of nigga played in reverse, which is often used to censor a song for radio play without rerecording the song or replacing nigga with another, more acceptable word, e.g. homie, cousin.

2. A euphemism for nigga, which can be used by those outside the black community to refer to their friends of any color, reducing the chance of being offensive with use of polarizing term nigga. Further offense can be avoided by emulating the reverse-playback quality as heard in definition 1, e.g. sniiiIIIcka.

Also pronounced snicka
1. "Got some friends rollin' witcha then that's cool/You can leave 'em with my snickers let 'em know that I got you..." Usher, In This Club

2. Wazzup, my snicka?
