    For those of you who didn't understand what that meant, Foxnews.com has culled a list of the latest slang to descend from rap and hip-hop influences like Ja Rule, Jay-Z and P. Diddy into the vocabularies of our sons and daughters.

    Keep a copy handy for quick translations:

    Spending Money:

    Bling-bling: Flashy jewelry; cash. "P. Diddy is so bling-bling."

    Cheese, Cheddar: Money. "That G (gangsta) got cheddar."

    Baller: A person with a lot of money; a ballplayer; a stud (player). "That cat is ballin'!"

    Drop: A drop-top convertible.

    Whip: Another word for car. "I bought a new whip!"

    Floss: To show off. "J. Lo be flossin' ice (diamonds)."

    Playa hater: Someone who hates someone else; the player is usually popular and the hater is probably jealous. "Don't hate the playa, hate the game." "Don't hate on me." "Why you hatin'?"

    Jennifer 'J. Lo' Lopez
    Kicks: Shoes, sneakers.

    Run Game: To attempt to con someone. "I ran game to get those kicks."

    Out on the Town:

    G: Gangster; a pal. "We've been friends ever since I was a little G."

    Dirty: A friend. "You're my dirty, man (i.e. You're my boy. We're brothers.)."

    Represent: Give respect to; to be from a place. "She represents Queens, I represent Brooklyn."

    Coolest Words for Cool:

    Tight/Hot: Cool. "My new crib (pad) is tight/hot!"

    Off the charts/chain/hook/heezie: Really cool. "Nelly is off the charts!"

    Pop: Not cool anymore; played out, like a song. "The Real Slim Shady is so pop."

    Love and Romance:

    Bounce: To leave a place. "I'm late, I have to bounce!"

    Shorty: A girl. "Shorty's lookin' proper."

    Boo: A boyfriend or girlfriend. "I love you, Boo."

    When You Really Mean It:

    Fo' sheezy: For sure. "I'll be there, fo' sheezy."

    Please believe it: Yes, definitely. (To be used instead of 'yes, definitely.')

    Coming and Going:

    Holla!: Hey; here I am; hello; goodbye

    One: One love, peace, goodbye. "I'm out. One."

    Hot dang it! Wouldn't those be impressive words to use?

    I'd rather spend my time learning the "code talker" sounds, though. At least I respect their motives.

    Blowing nuggets? To use that in a sentence you would say "Yo homes the brother drink to much ripple and blew nuggets all over your new crib."?
