When this term originally began to proliferate in the 1970's it was a derogatory term for someone in the neighborhood who 'stayed inside the house"- had little experience, was afraid to take chances, wasn't cool, kinda sissified; a cat who stayed home with his momma.

The epitome of a friend. Somebody you kick it with. A person who always has your back. You can't go through life without a homeboy. It's hard to have more than one, because they're one in a million.
