My son, 18, says that /iz/ or /@z/ (@=schwa) is reasonably current in hip-hop
slang as an infix to mean something like "the real thing" or "definitely" or
"for sure", apparently in nouns; e.g.
     b@'ziC                          < bitch
     man of the /hi'zaws/            < house

Does anyone know more about this?
