I was a rap DJ for a while - I learned a bit of Ebonics (although it's
not usually called that...)

When you hear: It means:
Yo, Word Up Yes, I agree wholeheartedly
You Down You're alright by me, little buddy
Kick It Commence the Festivities
That's Dope I find that acceptable
Bust a Cap Give someone a 9-millimeter GPF
OG Senior Executive
Yo, G Hail and well met, good fellow
Wack Absurd

Of course, it's been a few years...
