STREET LANGUAGE: (The study and application of street communication). Commonly referred to as Black English, Urban Slang and Ebonics. It is Hip Hopís language and linguistic codesóthe verbal communication of the streets.


Advanced Street Language includes the correct pronunciation of one's native and national language as it pertains to life in the inner-city. In addition, advanced Street Language deals with oneís communication even beyond what one says.
Street Language is not always spoken words. Hip Hopís Street Language includes certain street codes that may not be communicated in words at all.

Still, Street Language (as it pertains to the spoken word) is Hip Hopís attempt to free itself from the confinement of standard language and standard views of reality.

English (for example) does not have enough words or definitions to describe how we (Hiphoppas) feel about the world. This is what makes our Street (slang) Language so important to our state of freedom.

Street Language helps Hiphoppas interpret their world their way. Its practitioners are known as Hiphoppas.
