It's what un-educated people say most of the time.
Me: "That Michelle sure does have a nice body!"

Tom: "YO, man, stop talking about my sister!"

1)Used to get someone's attention

2)Used by white suburan kids to help them think they are cool while they wear throwback sports clothing that is too big for them.

3)A short word for "Hi" or "Hello."
1)Yo, foo why you scuff up my 20s with those stanky ass shoes.

2)Yo yo yo foos I be da hippest thang to come out of the suburbs.

3)Yo, what up?

Word has it that "yo" started in South Philadelphia, the Italian area.

However this could be because of the movie Rocky, in which he lives in South Philly and says "yo" a lot.

The real history might be out there, but so far, this is the best guess out there.
"Yo Adrian! We did it!"

The Y.O. (Yonkers) is one of the chillest places in New York. It's basically the Reno of the East Coast because it has a casino, prostitutes, and retarded cops. Every single person from Yonkers is an O.G. So the entire population is O.G., Proof: DMX, Jadakiss, Mary J Blige, and James Blake are all from Yonkers and the guy who invented FM radio, so without the Y.O. there would be no Hot 97. Conclusion: Yonkers is ballin
A- Waddup? I'm from the Y.O.
B- For serious? You must be O.G.
A- Word.
