1. Hiphop English introduction: from the froth. Yo, guys, what's good? You cool. Before we begin, I've got a few questions for you. Okay, Now, do you love urban and hip hop culture? Do you wanna communicate, Make like minded friends on understand the actual culture? Well, she came to the right place that my name's reef and I'm a tear full qualified English teacher with thousands of hours experience teaching English at all levels. But I also have a Nova love aside from teaching English and that's all things hip hop urban . Okay, from London's gritty on the ground groin scene to drill music to Meagles Kendrick Lamar drink, you name it. It could be American hip hop. It could be German friendship, pop. It doesn't matter. I love it. Anything urban, anything gritty from the streets. I'm an expert Anyway, guys, I'm here to break down the vocabulary, the phrase ease and even grammar rules which exist in hip hop on urban culture, because it really is another language sometimes. And I know that many you guys love the music but sometimes might not understand what a word means, especially if you're not a native English speakers. My job today and tomorrow and the day after is to help you guys fully understand on Immerse yourself in hip hop on urban culture. Get ready because this isn't like any over English lesson you've had before. Okay, so what are you waiting for? Let's go, Let's get you Give it. 2. Describing things - Peng, lit and more! : Now, let's start with describing things. Places, situations, adjectives, adverbs, etcetera. Okay, the 1st 1 fly. Okay, now let me say fly way. Don't mean like on the plane flying actually means good or fashionable, for example. Down. Did you looking Fly that Gilles flying, You fly jacket, you gone? It means it looks good or they look good. Okay, Next one very, very popular in the UK Pang Okay, now paying me very attractive or beautiful, but can also be used to say something Give excellent. Very, very good. For example, you know. Wow, Lucy's looking paying today. No, g yo, cause, have you seen her? Have you seen him? He's paying. Looking very good. Oh, something's very a tasty is excellent. Its top of the top. The case, for example. Well, my mom, you need to try my mom's food. It's pain. Now, If I said that, that would mean the food. If delicious, it's top of the top. OK, next dope. Okay, once again, don't even know Forward for good. Okay, you all that's dope. Yo, that's good. Okay, Just like paying just like fly. Now we have a trick one. Okay, bad. Okay, now, bad. But it can be good. It could be bad. For example, if someone said, Yo, your rhymes are bad and the context with their enjoying it and they're really feeling it, they're really into it. Emissions. Good. Yeah, I know. Crazy, right? You could know. So I say you are my girls bad. My woman is bad. Yeah, And that means I have a really, really cool, attractive, like chip. Amazing. My girlfriend's amazing. Okay, you could say old. Then train is a bad G, and that means G means friend. OK, And when you say down there, looking bad means they're looking good. I know it's confusing, but like I said, it's a whole nother language out here. Okay, now, moving on. Okay, You've got hot on. You got cold. Okay, now, hot and cold just mean the same thing. It sounds crazy. There's so many contradictions in this last type of language, but it's a wrap Speak. Okay. Hunt could be like, Yo, yo, That left looking hot, dude. Looking hot, G. It's very good. As you can tell from emphasis also, you know, he brings the he when he when he's wrapping, he brings the heat immediately. Bring fire. He brings the fire k very good. Very. You're captivated. But the next one cold. Like I said, cold can also mean good euro. He floated cold fake snow. You know, if you got not sensations, okay, you're them. Train is a cold G. Where do you get them from? That's cold for good Again. So hot ankles can be used to describe from think that is good. Okay. Or to say that you like something the next one less Okay. When something is less, it means it's relaxed. It's all good. It's all in order. Nothing crazy. Nothing bad is happening. Just blessed. Let for example, you know, how you doing your family on less. Today is a blessed day. Okay. How? How your family, which it's blessed. It's how you expected to be. It's good. There's order. Okay. Next one fit. Okay. Sick. Just like hot, cold dope. Fly paying just means very good. Yeah, he's got sick rhymes. You got sick T shirt. Very good. Okay, So sick. Doesn't mean like, you know, when you're from Ingle, you're not very well in hip hop.

How was the party last night? Yo yo yo yo It would let the music with Pang the guilt for flying everything. Everything, really everything lit. And that means everything with exciting high energy with good. And it's a very popular saying in hip hop English. It's let it let it means It's very good. It's very exciting. Next, we're gonna look a little bit negative, little bit negative guys week. Okay, Week means something is not very good. Okay? Obviously, obviously in normal English week means you're not very strong, you know. But it doesn't mean that in hip hop, English week means something just bad. It's not great. It's not terrible, but it's not that good. OK, yeah, he's Ryan through a bit weak, yo outfits a bit weak. I'm not really feeding the party pretty weak, and that means it's not that good. Just like we just had a week. The next one dead or dead, out dead or dead out doesn't mean literally, you know, dead one it tells me, is that something very bad. Very, very bad. It's not good at all. Okay? Your family dead out now. I'm not going to that club again. Dead. It means it's not very popular. It's not very cool. It's not very good. You know?

Okay, for example, You know you want to go. You wanna go out tonight? Yeah, I could do that. Money off. Gucci, Gucci Or How's your food? It's calm. It's calm. Okay, It sounds strange, but we use the word calm to actually say that something's all in order. German. They have a thing like Alice in ordinary. It's very which meets all is in order.

Let's go, man this role. Let's give it 4. Personal pronouns and more!: we back, baby, we back for another 11 Okay? Today we're going to be doing personal pronoun. Okay? Personal pronouns or basically the way we introduce people or what we call people. Okay, start with masculine ones. Okay for men, we've got fam your family. Good. How they go.

You can call that be bye bye or boom Mahboob Yeo boo! You could you'll be. How you doing? You achieve my baby. And that's a respectful way that you can talk about a woman that you like. Now women don't have as many personal pronouns in hip hop English men. I think that's primarily because, as you know, hip hop has been dominated by men for many years, even though now we may see many, many, many, many new words coming soon. You know, with Cardi B, Nicki Minaj and many of a female rapper killing the game, I'm pretty sure we'll see many, many, many, many more personal pronouns. Okay, now move up. Deplorable plu We've got my gang, my friend. Okay, My team, my squad, my boys, My Mandan, my man. All the same, it means the people around you, your friends, squad, team gang Click my people.
