10.
A term used to define the "realocity" of an individual. Often used to describe how "tough" or "ganga-skilled" one is.
Example:
Shanequa:I been sleepin' wit yo man, beyotch! *insert two finger snaps for good measure*
Ranaenae:Oh no you did not!
Shanequa:Oh yes I did, bitch! Whatchu gonna do about it?
Ranaenae:I gonna keep it real, you chickenhead.
*insert some low-class rap and a "pimped out" low rider.*
---===15 minutes later===---
Ranaenae shows up at Shanequa's abode in her worn out Cutlass Supreme carring a wooden baseball bat and a half-empty carton of eggs. First, she smashes out the front window of Shanequa's car, and proceeds to cake both the car and house with the eggs. Moments later, police arive on the scene to find Ranaenae scrawling something on Shanequa's house with black spraypaint. The then arrest her, throw her in their cruiser, and take her down to the police station. Ranaenae then claims police brutality and is released, so as promote good relations with the public.

Keep it unreal, virtual (shortened to keep it short).
"You say keep it real, but mean the last gasp of reality before it goes six deep, like the last bubbles bursting from a drowning man. It no longer matters whether "real" really means real or phony, or virtual, or normal as usual or any old shit. Reality doesn't need to be kept, thank you, and, in case you haven't noticed, it can't be gotten rid of in the first (or last) place. Reality, good, bad or indifferent, is all there is. You either take it or it takes you. If you leave it, you're dead, which is real for keeps."
