    Da Bomb
    "Da Bomb" means having and/or displaying great qualities. These qualities could be permanent such as "That 6-4 is da bomb" or temporary as in "Last night at da courts, Tyronne was da bomb!".

    Short for "I am going to do something." An example is "I'm fittin to eat me some lunch."

    5-0 (five oh)
    5-0 is the "gangsta" term for any police officer. It was taken from the old Hawaii Five-O television program, and many "gangstas" use it as a code word in place of "poe-leece".

    5000 (five thousand)

    (I'm gonna) gat yo' *** = You are angering me and I may become violent if you do not cease your actions

    A "gangsta" is supposed to be a very dangerous individual, but the term gets very overused and spawns many "wannabes". A true "gangsta" owns a "9" and drives a "6-4", which are both defined here.

    A "gat" is often referred to as a gun or pistol. Examples are "go out to the car and load the gat" or "got my gat by my side".

    Props are compliments. They are not usually specified and come in groups. Most "props" are "given" to another for something he or she did well. "Give a playa his props for his dawgs" is an example. If "props" are especialy in order, they may be given with the seldom-used "peeps". "Peeps" may only be given WITH "props".

In Ebonics, you "represent" for free. Most people when away from home are "representin" their hood. An example would be "Any playas here representin' L.B.C.?"

    A "ride" is usually referred to a car or other vehicle. The preferred "ride" is a 64 Chevy Impala (i.e. six-fo).

    Double meaning:
    1.Has nothing to do with music. Actually, it's crack cocaine. "Smokin' da rock" is it's usual
    2. A rock is a basketball. When you are playing basketball, and it is your possession an example
    would be "It's our rock."

    Six fo' (Six-fo' Impala)
    A "Six fo'" means a 1964 Chevy Impala. This is the preferred "ride" of "gangstas" due to it's spacious interior that can hold all the posse. It's size also creates some shelter in the case of return fire in a drive-by, and it's wide spacious trunk can hold many speakers and amplifiers.

    shout out
    Old and outdated term meaning acknowledge another, usually in a friendly manner. "Shout outs" are normally "sent", and normally are done in groups. Examples are "I'd like to send a shout out to big dog, T-e-r-r-and dot that i G, and all the playas on da south side". Now has been replaced by the current "wassup".

    This does not mean help but in gansta language it means "Shoot On Site"

    This is not referring to the Vermont ski area in any way. It is a place of business. The most popular variety of these is the "licka stowe", which many a "gangsta" and "playa" frequent to get their favorite nightly beverage - the 40.

    "toss it up"
    This term just popped up recently. It replaces "wassup", which replaced "shout out". So if you hear someone yell "shout out" reform them that they are now two terms behind.

    That's the bomb = that is very pleasing to me

    the man = law enforcement officer or a player

    tha shiznit = the best or a very potient herb

    Used to be a method of acknowledging another. Very similar to the antiquated "shout out", but in the 97 format. These too are usually sent in groups. This term has recently been replaced with "toss it up".

    "Whazzat? Homeboy be talkin' jive. Gotta clean ma gat and do some bidness in de hood."
    Actually, this isn't too different from any regional dialect. I had a time trying to understand some New Yorkers when I visited the Big Apple, and some here in the deep south could give a Brother a run for his money. And when you join the military, you get to learn a whole new language, too. I guess any group wants to define themselves by how they talk. Some of the new stuff the younguns come up with really blows me away.
