A can (cocky ass nigger) is one of those really annoying people who walk through the hallways at school screaming "AYYYYYEEEE" for no apparent reason and break dance every day at lunch time in front of a bunch of people so that they can get attention. During class, cans have a tendency to shout random things so that they can get attention. A majority of cans are Filipino and hypebeast, however they can come in any shape, size, or race.
Boy 1: "Omg where the hell are we supposed eat lunch??? Those stupid cans took up the entire hallway with their break dancing crew again."
Boy 2: "Thats ok we can just sit outside..."
*Goes outside*
Boy 1: "OMG WTF I hate my life these stupid cans need to back the fuck off nobody cares about them"
Boy 2: "Don't worry, class will be starting soon, we won't have to deal with them then."
*Goes to class*
Teacher: "In order to find the value x, we need to plug in the coordinates into the other equation and..."
Random Can: "hahahaahaha, I plugged x into your mom! OHHHH!!!!"

Can is a gang related word. When referring to spray paint, people use the word "can" as a code word so as not to attract attention when used publicly.
