thank you all, once again, for joining me in today’s segment of “gangsta-ass phrase of the day”. today’s segment won’t be a long one because the only explanation i have for why this phrase is used is “gangsta’s”
meaning “true” … like i said, idk about this one. ask a real gangsta.
thank you for joining me in today’s segment of “gansta-ass phrase of the day” where together, we will explore the vast ebonic landscape of the phrases typically utilized by what are known in our culture as “gangstas”. Today’s phrase is …
"imma get ghost in a hot minute"
i encountered this phrase on my cell phone when i received a message from a rather dark skinned friend of mine. in decoding this phrase, we see that it utilizes two very common “gangsta-ass” expressions. to “get ghost" implies that one will be departing the area - a metaphor for disappearing, like a ghost. the second expression "in a hot minute" is a bit on a conundrum for it implies that the action will take place relatively shortly - as we see in this situation. however it is often used to signify long periods of time. for example "yoooo! i haven’t seen you in a hot minute!" meaning "my dear friend! it has been ages since we have last set eyes upon one another!" so it can be used to achieve two very opposite meanings.
i hope you have enjoyed this segment of “gangsta-ass phrase of the day” - i sure have!
