second generation evolution of "you trying to do something", which is the evolved form of "would you like to do something".
combines "trying to do (the activity)" in one word - very helpful in a world where shortness (laziness) versus clarity reigns supreme.
"u tryna bowling?!" instead of wasting all that time saying "are you trying to go bowling?", or in the olden days: "would you like to go bowling?"
"u tryna do something tonight" - still wordy (I'd prefer "u tryna somethin" but i won't be picky)
"u tryna tryna" - funny lolligagging with the word tryna; even i'm not sure what this means and i created the slang...third evolution perhaps?
Making a half-assed effort; usually, an attempt not to do something while pretending that you’re trying to do it
Girlfriend: Pull out or I might get pregnant.
Boyfriend: I’m tryna, baby, but it’s just too good.
Spoken out loud often, but only ever written down by the extremely lazy or the extremely eager to be percieved as ghetto.
Leave me alone! I'm tryna do my homework!
