'Da', in street language, is the principle definite article and equivalent to 'the' in more formal English.
The use of the the /d/ derives from two main aspects:

-to add emphasis on a phrase

-quicker and easier to ignore the 'th' sound, usually for non-native English speakers (such phenomena is prominent in the word 'ting' rather than 'thing.')

Other variations of this include:

-dis (this)

-dat (that)
Person 1: Who did dat?

Person 2: Da person over der.
