Slang and Ebonics has been apart of hip hop for a long ass time but to me some of it is ridiculous.........I think it weakens the English language and furthers the point that Blacks are ignorant!

Ebonics, a portmanteau of "ebony" and "phonics", was originally intended and sometimes used for the language of all people of African ancestry, or for that of Black North American and West African people, emphasizing the African roots of the former; since 1996 it has been largely used to refer to African American Vernacular English.

Slang is the use of informal words and expressions to describe an object or condition. Slang is vocabulary that is meant to be interpreted quickly but not necessarily literally, as slang words or terms are often a metaphor or an allegory.

A funny Slang term I've found with examples:

Back Tits
when a fat hog of a woman has rolls that droop over her bra strap in the back giving the appearance of titties
Example:
one time i put my erection in a bitches back titties and back tittie fucked her

Back Tits 2
When a human is so grossly obese that their back fat appears to be a pair of floppy sagging breasts.
Example:
Yesterday on the plane I had to sit next to a giant bastard that took up 2 seats and a pair of back tits that would put most women to shame.

If u really wanna learn Ebonics...........this Big L song will definitely teach u the fundamentals

Big L - "Ebonics"

Yo, pay attention
And listen real closely how I break this slang shit down

Check it, my weed smoke is my lye
A ki of coke is a pie
When Im lifted, Im high
With new clothes on, Im fly
Cars is whips and sneakers is kicks
Money is chips, movies is flicks
Also, cribs is homes, jacks is pay phones
Cocaine is nose candy, cigarettes is bones
A radio is a box, a razor blade is a ox
Fat diamonds is rocks and jakes is cop
And if you got rubbed, you got stuck
You got shot, you got bucked
And if you got double-crossed, you got fucked
Your bankroll is your poke, a choke hold is a yoke
A kite is a note, a con is a okey doke
And if you got punched that mean you got snuffed
To clean is to buff, a bull scare is a strong bluff
I know you like the way Im freakin it
I talk with slang and ima never stop speakin it

Chorus: repeat (2x)

speak with criminal slang -nas
Thats just the way that I talk, yo
vocabulary spills, Im ill -nas

Yo, yo
A burglary is a jook, a woofs a crook
Mobb deep already explained the meanin of shook
If you caught a felony, you caught a f
If you got killed, you got left
If you got the dragon, you got bad breath
If you 730, that mean you crazy
Hit me on the hip means page me
Angel dust is sherm, if you got aids, you got the germ
If a chick gave you a disease, then you got burned
Max mean to relax, guns and pistols is gats
Condoms is hats, critters is cracks
The food you eat is your grub
A victims a mark
A sweat box is a small club, your tick is your heart
Your apartment is your pad
Your old man is your dad
The studio is the lab and heated is mad
I know you like the way Im freakin it
I talk with slang and ima never stop speakin it

Chorus (2x)

The iron horse is the train and champaign is bubbly
A deuce is a honey thats ugly
If your girl is fine, shes a dime
A suit is a fine, jewelry is shine
If you in love, that mean you blind
Genuine is real, a face card is a hundred dollar bill
A very hard, long stare is a grill
If you sneakin to go see a girl, that mean you creepin
Smilin is cheesin, bleedin is leakin
Beggin is bummin, if you nuttin you comin
Takin orders is sunnin, an ounce of coke is a onion
A hotels a telly, a cell phones a celly
Jealous is jelly, your food box is your belly
To guerrilla mean to use physical force
You took a l, you took a loss
To show off mean floss, uh
I know you like the way Im freakin it
I talk with slang and ima never stop speakin it

Chorus (2x)

Yeah, yeah
One love to my big brother, big lee
Holdin it down
Yeah, flamboyant for life
Yeah yeah, flamboyant for life

Straight: Alright.
“You wanna buy this bootleg of 300?”
“Naw man. I’m straight.”

Raw: Kinda like “OUTTA THERE!”. Could go for anything.
Example, one time me & my boyfriend were at McD’s. He ordered some food but two burgers were missing. The lady copped an attitude, talking bout she put everything in there. He told her “Hell naw. Ur fast ass probably ate it.” I shook my head & told him “You raw”.

We also say “Naw’mtalkinbout”. (Know what I’m talking about) but u gotta say it all like that. Lol. or “Naw’msayin”

Then there’s throwed (sumtimes spelt ‘thoed’): Could mean fly/hot or gone/high/drunk
“Man, did u see that car?!! That bitch was THROWED!!!!”
