    I don't like 'holla at ya boyi' either.

    'That's whassup' i use.

    'Yo shorty'- i hate that shitt. I feel like its so disrespectful and degrading to our women.

    'get crunk'- i always view this in congruence with a lack of intellect, i don't kno why.

    This is the first i'm hearing of 'co-sign'.

    well, basically to cosign is to add to someoe's statement (say for example) usually without invitation. the term is usually used in a negative context.

    so that would mean your "yeah, da's right" niggas. you know the ones...don't front like u dont know none neither.

    Well I wouldnt say "co sign" is used in a negative because its origanally a legal term. Just another way of agreeing w/ someone or something.
