A proposed etymology
Charlie9933's unsupported etymology (i.e., that steezy derives from steez, which is itself a portmanteau of style + ease) is not entirely implausible. Steez seems to exist with a meaning, I infer largely from an argumentum ad etymologiam, something like that of sprezzatura. One would expect, from their derivations, that the spellings steasy and stease, respectively (as well as a number of intermediate forms) would also be attestable; the Urban Dictionary *shudders* has both stease and steasy, FWIW. If anyone can find citations of steez, steasy, and stease, the etymology may be readdable in some form. — Raifʻhār Doremítzwr ~ (U · T · C) ~ 23:05, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

- We have a new definition now, which looks pretty steezily written. --Gente como tú (talk) 12:44, 16 January 2018 (UTC)
