Many definition changes are related to crime. For example, the movie "Blow" brought national recognition to a nickname of cocaine. However, ask for "blow" in Baltimore, and you'll get served heroin.

"Somebody gotta go get a hack (illegal cab) so we can go out the county (the suburbs).
"A yo, you seen Mike, yo?"
"Yo just got plucked by one of them dirty ass knockers."
