"Smallah" is also interchangable with, “hold the envy” and “knock on wood.”

"Smallah" is complex -- and this is the family of ideas that it belongs to: Expressing adoration and lack of spite in the face of what is typically enviable. "Smallah" withholds jealousy and just provides praise.

2. My beat up 1993 Toyota Corolla made it all the way to Ohio without breaking down, smallah. Look at that amazing little car... It's better than dad's Lexus.
