Ni/Nizzle/Nizza - Man/friend
Be careful when using this word. I probably use slang everyday without even knowing it. I must say, I don't want to really go into details with the word, because I don't want to offend anyone.... I suggest you just not use it - To explain why, if you take the word "Nizza" and replace the "z" with "g"'s you will understand why. This is where the word came from, this is Westcoast slang so you probably won't hear me say this word a lot.

Some phrases that I use:
1. Check yo' self = Watch what you say or watch what you
are doing.
2. Sauced - When you embarrass someone
3. Grill - I use this word to mean Space or teeth.
You all up in my grill - You're in my face / You're in my space / You're too close to me, etc.
4. Eat cake / Be gone = Get lost

I don't know if Ebonics is considered a real "language" but if so, things change everyday! I myself nor my peers will ever use these phrases anymore:

1. Da bomb - (replaced with "dat hotness")
2. Fly or Superfly

There are more, but I can't think of anything right now.
