This word is defined properly (dude, or guy). It comes from the Spanish word novato, usually meaning rookie or novice, or sometimes a friend.

In Spanish the letters B and V have nearly the same sound, and when they shortened the word novato in everyday speech, most people said or wrote bato; vato is correct as well.
I was just hanging out with some batos from school.
