13 New Slang Expressions/Words I’ve had to learn lately

With my oldest starting High School this year (how the hell did THAT happen?) I have had to learn a lot of new things to prepare.  Plus, all his friends spend time with me too so…..let me share my knowledge.

All of these will be from the Urban Dictionary

1.  What Are Those

This is what you say/scream when you see someone wearing shoes or other footwear that are dirty and/or non-brand unknown. You should also point your finger in the air then while saying “what are those?!” Make your way down to the person shoes, all while their back is turned.
*boy sees dirty non-branded shoes*

Boy: What Are Those?!

Crowd: *laughs*

2. Deez Nuts
Just F’ing with someone
eh, yo, what’s the ellos/ellas form of Sacar?


Sacan deez nuts!!!!!

ADDED:  From this video. Yeah.  Pretty silly.
3.  On Fleek
the quality of being perfect, or on point i.e. Zayn Malik
Zayn is on fleek due to his ability to appear perfect at all times.
ADDED: From this video
4.  Crunk
In 1995, Conan O’Brien and Andy Richter were scheming ways to get past the TV censors on Conan’s late night talk show, and they settled on an all-purpose, suitable replacement for the infamous seven dirty swearwords that they couldn’t say on TV: Crunk. The choice to use that word was definitely not random. Ice T just happened to be on the show that night, and he likely fed the word to them beforehand and certainly helped fuel its popularity during the telecast (“That was seriously crunked up, right there.”). But Ice never claimed to have come up with the word–he probably got it from Dirty South rappers, who had been using it for years as a euphemism for getting really crazy and fucked up on marijuana and alcohol (stoned and drunk. Chronic plus Drunk = Crunk). Or maybe crack and drunk. Or coke and drunk. Or maybe just being crazy and drunk. Whatever it is, it means getting really crazy and fucked up. And with Conan’s introduction of the word to northern suburban audiences, Crunk came into its own as the recognized sound of the new generation of Dirty South Rap, prompting white college fratboys everywhere to wander around going “WHHHUT!! OKAAY!! YEEEAAHHH!!” like annoying dipshits. and it’s all thanks to Lil Jon, and by Lil Jon I mean Dave Chappelle.
5.  Bae
Bæ/bae is a Danish word for poop. Also used by people on the internet who think it means baby, sweetie etc.
Bae I love u so much

Brian, my bae

I just made a bæ

6.  Turnt Up
– thee act of getting drunk and high to thee highest degree
– getting loose {whether that be just being wild or engaging in sexual activity}
shanay got supper turnt up at thee party last night.
7.  Basic
There’s a couple of different definitions for this one.
Urban Dictionary:
An adjective used to describe any person, place, activity involving obscenely obvious behavior, dress, action.


Transparent motives.

Pat was trying to fuck that drunk girl – so basic.

Shelby was showing off her tits for attention – fucking basic.

But I’ve also heard this one.
Definition: A word used to describe a girl who is only interested in things mainstream, popular, and trending. Typically used to describe your personality as boring, bland or uninteresting. Also used to describe ubiquitous pieces of clothing at the Gap, which is a shockingly accurate analogy.
Used in a sentence: “There is nothing special about her at all—she’s supes basic.”

8.  Thirsty
1. Too eager to get something (especially play)
2. Desperate
(Boy running up) “Ay gurl whasup? Look, you lookin real nice, can I get that young number?”

(Girl under breath) “Thirsty”

9.  Squad
Crew, posse, gang: an informal group of individuals with a common identity and a sense of solidarity. The term is a bit flashy and is more likely to be heard in hip-hop lyrics than in spoken conversation.
You step to me, and my whole squad will come down on you.
10.  Step To Me
When one individual behaves in a manner which could be perceived as threatening to another individual, either physically or emotionally so.

See also: Up in my business

“She got up in my face, and I said “Bitch, did you just step to me? You did NOT just step to me!”
11.  Yaaas
to Agree with or give props
When your friend looks good

“yaaaas bitch yaaaaas”
when your friend says stevie j the king of rats you reply “yaaaaaaas”

Friend 1: that bitch ugly as fuck two teas bitch cuz that aint none of my business

Friend 2: yaaaaaas

12.  AF
The acronym stands for ‘as fuck.’
That dinner was good AF.
13.  Dat Ass Doe
That ass though.

A woman can be an idiot, or have an ugly face, but if she has a nice ass it makes you want to say “dat ass doe”
The same is true of her legs, “Dem legs doe!” “Them legs though”

“Dat hoe has got an ugly face, but dat ass doe”

Friend 1: “that girl is stupid.”
Friend 2: “but dat ass doe.”
Friend 1: “true.”

You. Are. Welcome.

  1. Thanks. It’s always fun to learn new slang.


    These are Greek to me. My son usually keeps me updated. He has lingo but he’s getting older (35).

  3. Nice to know this. Not many will use it as English is a foreign language here.

    Fun fact on bae…wow, it’s poop 😉

  4. Can’t see myself in any situation where I would use these or even need to understand them.
