That dont make sense. Ham is hard as a mothaf**ka
Nah cat...good try. It was only until recently they made an Acronym for the pronunciation "HAM". We been saying that in the south. n*ggas just shorten everything. Good example is when Boosie was saying ratchet, he was really saying Wretched. But since the slang pronunciation of it is "RA"tchet then they ran with it. We talk very f*cked up down here...so when something is said its often turned into something else.

I NEED TO KNOW WTF A "LIZM" IS JADA IS ALWAYS SAYIN THAT sh*t "stick up kids come around, when they sense that you rich
candles of lizm get lit, when you get hit with the fifth" glooks lol
lizm is another spin on the term "izm" or weed... perhaps the "l" at the beginning may imply that it its already lit!

No... boosie meant ratchet...
Ratchet might have derived from wretched but he meant ratchet... you dont do the wretched, you do that ratchet

Of course he did. Because you from the same hood as Boosie like me. You often talk to him over the phone from Camp J like i do. And Mrs.Connie ,his mama, knows you and often talks to you like me too. Whelp since you personally KNOW Torrence spent several years around him and his family you should know better than me right? What was i thinking?

Tre pound is more like a 9mm. A .357 is a heavy caliber gun. Just listen to Big L -Ebonics, it will help you nerds who never go outside out with slang...

A tre pound is a 357. Tre meaning three, pound meaning 5. How the fu*k you think this relates to a 9mm is beyond me.

No, but i know "ratchet," the word it self was popular locally before boosie made do the "Ratchet" and he did originate the term but just the one to popularize it.

"What the lick read" is down south slang for "what's it lookin' like" "whats the plan" or "whats good"

It originates from when someone would "catch a lick" or in other words a "come up" as explained in the post before mine. You would ask the person whos doing/did the lick, "what the lick read?" meaning, "how much/what did you get?" or "how much was/is that lick is worth?"

Eventually it just became a slang phrase for "what's going on?"
