The word "promo" has 2 different meanings.

1. The word "promo" is short for "promotional".
This word is most known in the Urban scene for being seen on vinyl (LPs, records), tapes and CDs.
Back in the early days of Hip-Hop vinyl production (and still to this day), vinyls were/are given out to DJs known as "promo vinyls". These vinyls are cut (the grroves in vinyls are "cut" using a special type of needle) and given out, usually for free to DJs so that a DJ can play the vinyl in a club or on the radio.

On these vinyls, is the word "promo" written on the record sleeve or record label to tell people that this is a "promo" vinyl that this DJ has. It mostly has "for promotional use only. Not for resale" written on the record case or label instead of just the abbriviated "promo".

2-Expression 1. Promo is sometimes known to people as an expression to explain a persons seemingly over-the-top personality.
The word promo is sometimes known as a "professional homo (promo)" in the way that the person seems to be so good at acting homosexual.

Expression 2. It can also be used as an expression of saying that a person likes to promote his/herself too much. This version of the expression comes from the word "promote".
1. Example; "Hey man, check this out, I got a Biggie promo on vinyl today".

2-Expression 1. "That dude is so obviously a promo!"

Expression 2. "That chick always like to promo herself around the place too much..."

Promo from Monday Night RAW (January 2011)

CM Punk: Wow, everybody, it's John Cena. He comes out here every Monday night, he's excitable, he throws his hat at somebody, everybody loves it. I am so impressed at how you do that. You get all these people to believe you're that friendly, smiling, everyday man, when I know the truth. And the truth, John Cena, is you're thoughtless, you're heartless, and above all else, you are dishonest. I'm sure there's millions of people worldwide, including yourself, that would love to believe this is over a spilled diet soda, but John, this goes way beyond my spilled diet soda. Yeah. John, you were fired from the WWE. You were gone. You gave a very tear-inducing speech in the middle of the ring about how you finally get to see your mom and hang out with your little brother, and you said you were gonna go away. You were gonna be a man of your way, but what happened? You came back later that night, and then you came back the next week, and then you came back the next week, showing all of these people who aren't intelligent to see through your facade what I have known all along—that your word is absolutely worthless.

A professional homosexual. For someone who embraces being gay to such a degree that there's no doubt he's gay. Helen Keller would know that he's gay before he fully crossed the threshold into the gay bar. If there were to be an award for being the gayest one at the disco, it would go to the Promo.
Did you see that guy twirl and prance his way into the bar. He was wearing short-shorts, and you can see the scars on both knees. He's a total Promo.
