jo (also spelled joh or joe) is Philly slang used to describe someone who is being "hype", "extra", "OD", etc... Or someone who is being a irritating as a mofo at the moment. I find it to be very difficult to grasp the essence of in words. (Refer to example for better understanding) However the word has evolved so much that it is now used to describe someone or something who is some form of whackery.

When someone is being jo they can usually be described as "drawlin'" (usually pronounced with LITTLE stress on the "l"). While denoting similar meanings these words are not exactly interchangeable. While jo can describe a person "she's jo" or their action "she's acting/being jo", drawlin' can usually only describe the person "she drawlin' man", NEVER "she's being drawlin'"

That's all folks!
