A variance of the word shortie or shorty. This word is typically used by people who have gone through a thug phase. It is used to describe a fine chick of whom is shorter in stature. A shawty has to have a fine ass and knows how to spend all your hard earned drug money. You don't seem to care though cause the sex is worth it. Now if your girl doesn't like the name try a variance like, Candy Lady, white chick, Frog, little red, roach, poo poo, or my favorite... little step
Oh shawty you fine girl you wan to pop outa this cracka house?
