a term used to describe validation in the black community, more specifically in the rough neighborhoods. So the rumor goes...a person equipped with a hood pass could venture off into an unknown black neighborhood without fear of having their pockets turned inside out or having guns drawn on them.
John Mayer: Whats up my nigga !!
random black person: What d'you say son??
John Mayer: Its cool bro, i got a hood pass.
