Not being fake or influenced. Being true to yourself and your values, but more importantly, being true to innate values that all people acknowledge as respectable. Not frontin, or inhibiting yourself or pretending to be something your not; but also not following dominant values that should not be acceptable.

Honesty, doing the right thing, genuineness, fairness and reasonability are generally aspects of keeping it real. Gandhi kept it real because even though his acts were controversial or illegal, they were never harmful and society now knows he was doing the right thing.

Also used in a more jocular way to explain an individual's behavior that they may have thought was the right thing to do out of stubbornness or disregard for others, but it wasn't really keeping it real because the social concensus is that it is not.
- Matt respects everybody, he is genuinely nice to friends and strangers and does not seek out conflict with people or put them down. He is keeping it real.

- Joe stands up against bullies at his school and defends kids who are getting made fun of, even though he is quite popular and doesn't hang out with those kids. He is keeping it real.

- Ashley skipped Friday night partying with her friends to stay at home and watch movies with her sister who just broke up with a boyfriend. Ashley is keeping it real.

- Josh just isn't a very smart person, but he puts effort into doing the best he can. He is keeping it real.

Alternative example:

Latoya: Tanisha why did you call me out for buying my shoes at Walmart in front of everybody.
Tanisha: I'm just keeping it real, why does it matter where you buy your shoes?
Latoya: Girl you are not keeping it real, I know it doesn't matter where I buy my shoes but people still might make fun of me for it. It's really just none of their business.

When a statement is "tongue in cheek" it is ironic, slyly humorous; it is not meant to be taken seriously, however its sarcasm is subtle.

Though not meant to be taken seriously, it is not overt joking or kidding around, it is "gently poking fun". A "tongue in cheek" statement may have a double meaning, some sort of inuendo or is witty in some way, particularly to the speaker. The tone or the context of the statement may make it to be taken seriously by the listener.

It's origin comes from when Spanish minstrels would perform for various dukes in the 18th century; these dukes would silently chastise the silliness of the minstrel's performances by placing their tongue firmly to the inside of their cheek.
(A family goes out to dinner with their grandma at a restaurant called Dick's)
Grandma: I love Dicks, they're so delicious. I think I need seconds.
Kid (tongue in cheek): Hey grandma, why do you like Dicks so much?
Grandma: Oh well I'm not sure, they just make my mouth happy!

A term used for a woman who thinks she knows everything about everything; a woman that thinks her shit don't stink. Miss Thang thinks she's right, but she ain't always right. Miss Thang is stubborn and fails to see situations from any points of view besides her own. She thinks she's the shit.

Often associated in reference to black women, where the term probably originated, but is very commonly used for women (and even men sometimes) of any race.
Shaniqua was bossing her friends around like she was Miss Thang.

Jessica thinks she's Miss Thang since she's on the cheer squad, but she's not very good at cheer and none of the cheerleaders like her. And she's fat.

- When somebody does something (usually accidentally) to offend/hurt/bother/inconvenience you, but you aren't really that offended/hurt/bothered/inconvenienced (or you don't mind it), you respond with "You're good"; basically it means "it's not a big deal" and the purpose is to alleviate guilt or blame of the other person.

- When someone does something particularly industrious, clever or witty, you may respond to them "You're good", with emphasis on the word "good". Generally it is a comment, but can also be a general statement or a concession (see touche).
A waitress accidentally spills wine on a patron at a restaurant.
Waitress: Oh my gosh I am so sorry! So sorry!
Patron: It's fine, you're good!

Pedro (holding a videotape): I have the tape of you getting gangbanged right here.
Lisa (grabs tape out of Pedro's hands and breaks it): Hah! You can't blackmail me now!
Pedro (smiling): Bitch, please you think that's the only one I made? Of course I have another one. You're screwed, bitch.
Lisa: Shit... you're good.

Generally used more in a friendly, jocular manner when a homegirl expresses her sexually promiscuous escapades to another homegirl. The typical response is "you a ho!" to show surprise at the situation, but usually not disgust or anger.

It's kind of ghetto sounding, but not as stupid sounding as youz a ho.

Lafonda: Gurl you a ho!

A vulgar term referring to a restroom. Similar meaning to shitter, though pisser generally isn't refering to "a toilet", but to a "restroom, with the purpose of using a toilet". Basically, you can say "on the shitter" but you shouldn't say "on the pisser", and you say "in the pisser", not "in the shitter", which would refer to inside the toilet.

When someone is "in the pisser", they are taking a piss.
Where's Patty?
She's in the pisser, she'll be out in a sec.

coot

- A shorter version of the word cooter, which basically means vagina. "coot" is less crass-sounding than "cooter". It is probably most similar in connotation to the word twat when referencing a vagina, as opposed to pussy, which has a more sexual connotation and snatch which sounds pretty crass.

- More commonly a "coot" is an older, usually male person, and generally refers to a perceived diminished capacity, uncouthness or senility. Typically said "old coot".
She's got a pretty ugly coot for a pornstar.

That old coot hanging out on his porch all day is always yelling at the kids for no reason.
