A term used to tell someone that you made a mistake and apologize at the same time. Originally Used Mostly by African Americans but over the years it has become a more mainstream term; so it is not uncommon any more to hear anyone else (possibly in the professional world too) say it to admit to making a mistake.

Teacher: My Bad you were right and I was wrong, sorry for the misunderstanding

My bad originally came from the term my bag.
This was a term used when playing a game of spades (a common jail house or hood game with cards) In the game you would have to fortell how many "books" or hands you would take. If you went over that number it was called a "bag". If you were playing with a partner, which was mostly common, it is considered a courtesy to claim your mistake by saing "My Bag" or get shot.... : ) your choice... anyway this carried out to the street and stupid beverly hills bitches misundertood the ghetto term and said "My Bad" and it stuck in mainstream pop culture.
In a game of spade, you called 5 out of 13 books and you get 6....

You say: Ahh shit dog, sorry, my bag.

Your partner says: Yea that's what I thought, get screwed the fuck on, and don't let it happen again.

Pop culture.... in comes the movie Clueless and the term My Bad is substituted and made popular.
