Short for A Bathing Ape, Bape is a Japanese-based clothing brand. The clothes are like hip hop clothes, but brightly colored and with interesting designs....sometimes.
Bapes stand out from your run of the mill gangsta clothes.
Look at the word. Let's break it down, kids.
Gang + ster
A person who is a GANG MEMBER is a gangsta. Being poor, sagging your pants, or looking tough do not make you a gangsta. A gangsta is a gang member...this should be obvious.
Tygrone claimed to be a gangsta because he sagged his pants and glared at white people.
A call for the Blood gang ususally followed by SUH WOOP
What up Blood? Woop-woop, suh wooooooop!
To be high on marijuana like a member of the flower children.
Look at the guy over there. He is stoned like a hippy, as clearly indicated by his red eyes and easily-amused state.
THe footwork dance performed by Swoops (Bloods) to signal membership in the Blood gang. Compare and contrast the more famous Crip Walk. The Swoop Walk is slightly different and involves shuffling and jumping around, sometimes spelling out Blood or the local set with one foot while shuffling with the other.
The Crip yelled, "UHRIIIIP!" and in response the blood put on a red baseball cap and did the swoop-walk while throwing a B with his hands.

That new hoodie is cold, man!
the B Bounce is the dance performed by Bloods for fun or to indicate Blood membership. The Crip walk is the parallel thing for Crips. Usually during the B Bounce you will spell your set with one foot and during the Crip walk you will spell you name, your set, Bloods and cross it out, or some other gang shit. The non-gangsta spinoff of the Blood Bounce is also called the bbounce or the bwalk, but like the clown walk is different from the Crip walk (clowning being the non-gangsta dance spinoff of Crippin), the dance bbounce is different from the gangsta Blood bounce in that it shares steps with the clown walk, and is much faster and flashier.
He did the B Bounce and his red rag bounced around in his pocket as he skipped side to side and spelled EASTSIDE with his foot.
