Like a throw up, Lay ups, or lays, are graffiti consisting
of 2+ colors in a bubble or stretched format on freight cars/the infamous NYC Subway/Transit System. Burning and
bombing can both be associated with laying up, since a burner
may lay a work from top to bottom, wall to wall (Top of the car to bottom, left side of the face to right), and then a bomber may lay up OVER the burner's work--

May also be called L'in or L'ed

Famous Layup/Throwie Artists from NYC include Tracy 168, MIN, SEEN, SKEME, etc.
Writer1:"LagooN Ave Burners just L'ed up (layed up) our line!"
Writer2:"Well, we best get L'in all over it then!"

W2:"I got some outties (outlines) for you, lay up!"

An organized date usually arranged by friends where the sole purpose is sex and/or getting over a failed/bad relationship. Should not be confused with rebound. A lay up may or may not culminate into a meaningful relationship.
Matt felt bad for James so he called Alice and had her arrange a lay up with one of her friends.

A girl who is so easy you can not miss.
if you miss a lay up you are open to all chirps regarding having no wheels and just being an all around bad guy.
Andrew: "Dev how could you miss that lay up you had the open lane!?"
Devin: "I got buttery fingers yoh"

1) How to describe the action you take when you had way too many drinks the night before and don't want to go to work/school.

When its getting towards closing time, and everyone's cocked, you look over to the other side of the bar and that girl thats drooling drunk... yeah, she's a layup. At this point, she'll go home with anyone with a pulse. No extra effort needed, easy layup.
Mike: its gettin late man
