Yesi, pronounced "Yes-I" is a Rastafarian slang word spoken primarily by the Rastafari as a greeting, acknowledgement, answer or apology ( I.e. Hello, whats up, yes sir, yes, I hear you, Hows it going, ect. ) in the Caribbean and virgin Islands. It has many meanings and uses depending upon how and when it is used.
Man walks past another person, says "yesi" instead of hey or whats up. The other person might respond with "Safe?" "Good" or "Safeowa?" . An Old man asks teen to help with changing a tire, Kid says "Yesi" instead of Yes Sir.
