Jamaican definition: Anyone from your neighbourhood (not necessarily gangsters).
"Yardies, in terms of a reputation for ruthless violence, could one day rival the Triads or Mafia". - BBC
The term stems from the slang name given to occupants of government yards in Trenchtown, a neighborhood in West Kingston, Jamaica. Trenchtown was originally built as a housing project following devastation caused by Hurricane Charlie. Each development was built around a central courtyard with communal cooking facilities. Due to the poverty endemic in the neighborhood, crime and gang violence became rife, leading the occupants of Trenchtown to be in part stigmatized by the term "Yardie".
" Hellucination "
And a dead boy, and I don’t even know
he looks like the dred, that hooked us up on the low
What you say fly?
thinkin out loud, just caught me in the zone
I’ll tell you all about it on the way home
Whatever, i’mma send this nigga to his essence
Fuckin wit the family, know he gotta learn a lesson
And you know he ain’t yardy right
Some boy gon get dead tonight
As we strap on the gloves, feel the buzz from cannabis
Niggas bout to get scandalous
(arguing and gunshots)
Not to be confused with 'yardie', which is Jamaican slang.
This word is only used in Sheffield and mainly by people who went/go to High Storrs and King Edwards schools.
Person 2: "Mate that's yardy"
1. People whoa re addicted to yardsales. They attend Yardies Annonomous.A.K.A:YA.
2. People who have sex in their front yards. Never the backyard always the front. They like the attention.
3. Kind of like furries yet they are people that get dressed as plant like creatures and masturbate in their front yards. Once angain never the backyards always the front. ( they masturbate because they think they're plants and plants are of coarse asexual so they masturbate.)
2. The old couple, known as yardies, 'got off' by entertaining their street with sexual acts in their front yard.
3. People have always heard of 'furries' but now they have found a new kind of 'strange sex act' called yardies. These people, different from furries dress up and think they are plants, and masturbate in their front yards. Weird right??
