and onu meet up and whatever happens happens

and your wife, mother, brother or whoever would give interviews to the babbylan dem stating you were always on the computer angry

and dem will come to imix and get the records and see who and who you were badding up and go get fi dem ip info and lives are just ruined

why?

cause you wanna be on the net and pretend to be some tough person

yall fukkin silly and destructive to onuself

ITS A SHAME
:confused this negro is now talking bout baylon
 
LOL its used in different contexts elsewhere...yuh was de only child growing up..?
which is why I SPECIFICALLY said if you were a youth who run de streets

and you said you not

and I said I overstand


you are a tough guy and tough guys run the streets and get lokkd up and guh hospital etc

so if one was around street elements thats a NORMAL regular phrase

ok character?

Steuuuupssss!
Trinbagonians who familiar with this new slang "eat ah food" and "drink ah juice"..what does dat mean?...last time i went trini ah hear ah ghetto youth by de corner saying he bout to "eat this man food" ..ah feel he talking bout either robbing the man who going after the man woman.. :confused

I was hoping to after reading the title to see that somebody had resurrected this thread from the year 2000. Since then people have been using this term on IMIX and "eat ah food" was around for at least 10years before that!
 
sorry Sir.........dat sound like ghetto trash linguistics........i live in the semi-burbs
it very much is

and cause giuliani to shut dung the city a few years ago

was all in the papers and everything

my simple point was

if one is in the streets or was or exposed to "ghetto trash linguistics" THAT would have been a normal phrase

As plenty ppl say it not new

1. eat a food literally :kicks:
2. make some money/ entrepreneurship
3. take something from another person in a shady way eg. go fuk somebody woman, cheat them outta some money, street gamble, goin to "work" drugs-robbing- and other such dealings
I think Taj explains it best wrt to how it is used by Trinbagonians...




Iz ah piece ah dotishness stolen from Jamaicans and popularised by Bunji.
Damn shame
LOL!!...whey u come with dat from?...when Bunji does use dat?

Jamaican slang used from as far back as 1995 to the best of my memory....it is also used in numerous dancehall songs dating back to that time also.

Means either to take something (normally life) or make money.


Context:


You dont hear say dem eat Johny food? the bwoy dem come cross well strap and bore him up...meaning they took Johny's life.


If dah bwoy deh stray across the border and mi have it pon me, mi ago eat him food.....meaning if he strays I am going to take his life.

Him a try gwan like him a big dribbler and mi just catch him on the line and eat him food....meaning I slide tackled him and took the ball and his leg.


If mi get two pound a key key and flip dat...everyman can eat a food from dat....meaning if I get two pound a weed to flip..every man can make a money from it.
