"What It DO" is a term coined in The Bay Area (Oakland) CA by Oak native Keak Da Sneak Aka "Z-Kush" (also known for creatin' the term Hyphy). The Term was used to asked a Dude at a side show, what his muscle car could do? i.e Doughnuts Fishtale...ect!!! The term was later loosely used throughout the Bay Area as a term to ask a homie how he's doing. (What's up?, What's Crackin'?, What's good? What it is?...ect) Keak Coined this term before Paul wall's wack A** was even in the Rap Game! Houston Bit "What it do" from The Bay and tried to run with it and call it their own! Much like how the rest of Bay Area Slang is pirated! Slang Capitol USA is Da Bay! Frisco, Oaktown, V-Town, Sac-Town, San Jo, Da Rich... Ya'll can Borrow But GIVE CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE!!!
Original Meaning:
Ace: Yo Cutty, What It Do?
Smiley: Doughnuts Homie!

Later term:
Ace: Yo "What It Do" Homes?
Sleepy: Nothin' Homie, Just kickin' it!

should result in a mob or scrapper doce'n, (OAKLAND and spreading). Turned in to a more casual greeting in bay area neighborhoods (3100, CRESTSIDE, HP, FILLMOE, THE SWAMP, LV, ETC.). Used by bay artist like Mac Dre, Mac Mall, Keak, Bailey, FAB, Etc. And appearantly borrowed by rappers from Houston, in much tha same way Snoop Doggy Dog borrows the Bay's 'izlle (ex. off the heezie fa shezzie).
"YO WHAT IT DO?" - how much doce'n can that box do?
"Whud it do do mayne? " hey whats up (in the bay)
"What it Do" - not so sure what they would use it for in Houston, maybe screw and flip tracks

Real Talk. What it do is country slang used in the south for decades by many older african americans. Made popular in Houston by its underground rap scene in the mid 90's(for you bay area folks who think yall made that word up, that's southern slang that dates back before e-40's birth.) It is used as a greeting and even a question. (People in the bay area say they use it to ask about something. Ex. As you're looking at someones ride you're like what it do? It drive's you dummy, there's in slang in that question, just inproper english. I must say that they sound dumb using it too.
