If you flip something you make a profit out of it.
Let's say you bought a 5-stick pack of gum for 25 cents and you sell every stick for 10 cents (giving you 50 cents) you just flipped the pack of gum.
I heard there was a show where people flip houses.
They buy some houses, fix them up then sell them for more than they paid.
So I guess you could flip anything, but when I hear someone say they flipped something I'm usually thinking about narcotics.
In the example, "pound" is probably a pound of chronic, cocaine, etc..
Should I shoot out of town and flip this pound? - Mack 10
If you're "scary" you're scared.
"Why you so scary for?" means Why you so scared for?
"Stop acting so scary." means Stop acting so scared.
When Phat Rat called G-Unit "scary ass niggas" he wasn't saying that G-Unit frightens him..
He was saying that THEY are scared of BWS and fear them.
(BWS meaning Black Wall Street)
"Scary ass niggas" - Phat Rat on G-Unit
to make it simple,
its basically the same as conceited..
look at the examples
"Shut your big head up"
-Shut your conceited head up
"We didnt want him to get a big head"
-We didnt want him to become conceited
"He's had a big head ever since he won that championship"
-He's been conceited ever since he wont that championship
To sleep. I'm not sure of how many ways to use it though.
If you were sleeping you wouldn't be "z'ing."
The only way I know how, or have heard anyone use it is in the example.
Slang: I'm going to cop
me some z's
Translation: I'm going to get some sleep
Donell Jones has a song called "Cool On You"
"Cool On You" means that he passes on the girl that cheated on him if she were to try to get back together.
You've heard people respond with "nah, I'm cool" before right?
For example if someone asked "wanna jump off a bridge? want some of this jalapeno? want me to try to hook you up with that fat girl?" some people would answer "nah, I'm cool" or simply "I'm cool"
which is another way of saying "I'll pass"
"want to go smoke some bud?"
"nah, I'm cool on that"
so if a girl ever asks you something like "do you like me? do you want me?" etc
if youre not feeling her you can say "I'm cool on you"
back to the song..donell jones is just saying that he doesn't even like that female anymore..he'll pass on her "i'm cool on you"
To scuffle up is to acquire, get, make, you know words like that.
You can "scuffle up" on pretty much anything.
Slang: I'm trying to scuffle up on some bread
Translation 1: I'm trying to make some money.
Translation 2: I'm trying to get some money.
Translation 3: I'm trying to acquire some money.
Slang: I'm trying to scuffle up on some stereos.
Translation: I'm trying to (get, acquire, steal, etc) some stereos.
Shorts that only go down to your knee (maybe shorter).
Back in the day, people wouldn't have their shorts down to their ankles like people do now.
Haven't you seen old school ballers from the NBA? Their shorts would be at their knee caps or shorter.
About the example: When Nas first got into the rap game, with the album 'Illmatic' back in 1994, people weren't wearing these huge over-sized shorts that some people do now.
When Nas hit the scene I was still rockin
