A combination of faux and homie, as in somebody who pretends to have come from the ghetto and actually knows how hard the life is growing up there.
Kevin Federline or "K-Fed" is just another fauxmie.
America has voted with its wallets, and the world's most blatant fauxmie (that's faux-homie) has been kicked to the curb.

A contraction of the prefix, faux, and homie, the fauxmie is a kind of poseur. He may be a suburbanite claiming to be from the streets, a law-abiding b-boy repping a phantom hood, or simply a part-time pimp. The fauxmie takes many forms, all of them lame.
Fauxmie's run rampant any place where relative wealth and hip hop culture intermingle with strip malls and general white-bred mediocrity.
I first encountered this term in the Onion AV Club's "Least Essential Albums of 06" feature.
Orange County is the fauxmie nexus of the universe.

Most people would agree, Kevin Federline is a total fauxmie.
