Loosies also refers to when you buy individual cigarettes in a bodega or corner store. You sometimes hear them referred to as "corner loosies".

We all know what the word "lick" means -- an easy opportunity of gain (robberies, burglaries, etc).

This has somehow evolved into everyday slang, since people in the hood are always looking for a "lick." So, it's only right someone awakes everyday and ask, "What the lick read?"
Yea this sound right

I see what you did there.



Kill Cam didn't coin "No Homo", bruh -- although he arguably popularized it.



Broccoli = Green. Green = Money or Weed. Either definition works, depends where you're from I guess.
are'nt no homo and pause the exact same thing? why does cam get the credit when jay was saying pause way earlier?

It's a lotta of F's to be passed out in this thread. A lot of people exposing themselves in this one, not only the ones asking, but the one's answering...
