in New Orleans (where i am from). It is a 1990's word that started
in new orleans that means cool, tight, nice, or anything of that nature. In the Bigtymers(who are from new orleans) song "still fly" when he says "dont
got no job, but im stay shive." most
people think he says "sharp" when infact, he says shive. most
know the word shive, so they
assume he says sharp, which he doesn't.
if you look good you can say something like..."man, i look shive today
dont i?" or if they have a good looking
car or something, you could say, "man, thats a shive
car." you can use it in the place of "cool".
