The term "homie" was started by Mexican-Americans, most commonly in East Los Angeles, though, of course, the credit givin for the term goes out mostly to African-Americans. The term derrives from Homeboy, and was shortened down to just "Homes" or sometimes spelled "holmes", which is another Mexican-American term, commonly used in California. Rapper Biggy Smalls has used the term homes/Holmes commonly.

The term "homeboy" derrives from "homie", and each of those terms have been shortened down overtime as "homes", or sometimes spelled "holmes". The term was started by Mexican-Americans living in the barrios of Los Angeles, most commonly said in East Los Angeles. The term refers to friends/companions living in the same neigborhood as eachother. Which is why "HOME" is started before boy, thus creating "homeboy".
Person 1: Aye whats happening homeboy?
Person 2: nothing just chilling, you?
Person 1: about to go to Rob's house...
