Yardy is another word for a Jamaican, specifically one from a difficult socio-economic area.

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 "

tek (steele)

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)

A thing or situation that is a bit messy/disgusting/grim.

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.
