Ever had someone use words that make you feel really old for not knowing it? Ever felt left out in a conversation because you’re not ‘hip’ enough? Do you still use the word ‘hip’? Feel like…
Fear not, for Sevenpie is here to help you sound cool and also help you understand what everyone’s talking about.
Some have speculated that its roots come from the cringe-worthy “the roof is on fire”. ‘Lit’ means that something is ‘turned up’ or just really amazing, and a similar urban synonym for ‘lit’ is ‘turnt’.
“How’s the party?”
“It’s lit! Hurry up and come over!”
Lit can also mean that someone is extremely intoxicated. This is because when someone is extremely intoxicated, they tend to smile a lot which makes them look like they’re lit up like a light.
“Why’s Anna smiling like that?”
“It’s because she’s lit!”
Snatch is the new ‘fleek’, which is used to describe anything that looks really good or is ‘on point’. You can describe someone’s outfit to even their eyebrows with this word.
“Girl, your eyebrows are snatched!”
The word has its roots from the Erykah Badu song “Master Teacher”. The New York Times Magazine defines the word as “the inverse of ‘politically correct’. If ‘P.C.’ is a taunt from the right, then ‘woke’ is a back-pat from the left.”. The more ‘woke’ someone is, the more sympathetic and knowledgeable one is about a topic or person. It’s also used to describe men who are feminists.
“Did you hear about the time James gave Anna tampons when she needed on?”
“Yeah! He’s woke!”
4. Low-Key / High-Key
Low-key can be used in place of the formerly popular phrase ‘down low’, which can be used when someone is about to say something they don’t want everyone to know about.
“I just low-key tripped in the cafeteria earlier. I’m grateful no one saw it”
High-key is when something is so real and true that there’s no denying it. When one claims that something is high-key, means they’re all in. High-key can also mean that something is well-known by everyone.
“Did you hear about James’ party?”
“Yeah man. It was high-key”
That was high-key af.
Savage is an act that is cool or hard-core, and goes beyond the normal scope. It can also mean that something is brutal.
“Did you see the GIF of Yoncé rolling her eyes at Jay Z?”
“Yeah. It was savage.”
If you ever need the perfect passive-aggressive insult, there’s ‘hunty’. Made popular by the TV show ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’, the word combines the terms “c*nt” and “honey” to create this dangerously creative term of endearment.
“Sorry for being late, hunties! Love you guys though!”
An abbreviation of ‘relationship’, the word describes a person’s approval of desired romances.
“Oh my god, I ship Sherlock and Watson so badly.”
Fam is a way to greet a group of close friend or an individual close friend. It’s been used for a very long time in the U.K and is now on the rise all around the world.
“Sup, fam? What are we doing today?”
Sus is an abbreviation of the word ‘suspect’. It can mean sketchy or shady.
“Remember when Cady gave Regina George those Kalteen bars to ‘lose weight’ but she gained more weight? That was sus.”
Coming from Eminem’s song “Stan”, the word has the same meaning as what the song is about; an obsessed fan. You can also use ‘stanning’ in place of ‘obsessively stalking’.
“He’s stanning Eminem by writing him letters.”
When someone calls you extra, they’re saying that you’re too hard or being over the top.
“Regina George’s mom needs to stop being so extra”
12. Goals AF
‘AF’ stands for ‘as f*ck’, hence ‘goals af’ would be used for something you admire or something you want.
“Beyoncé’s squad is goals af”
Now, you can go forth and have those weird sounding conversations like all the cool people are having these days.
