    on 'TheOtherSide' of that road (see what I did there ) We see the minority that turned into a majority, the roadmen, they are adapative to any climate as long as they have their expensive clothes and their mandem...

    Fam how do you not understand? Mans gonna translate it to your wasteman language then:

    "Hello, good sir, I would like to purchase two pieces of southern fried chicken with a side order of fries. Also (*pulls out knife*) let me inform you in advance that I will not be paying for the aforementioned items. As always, I warn you against attempting to call the police."

    Also, DSN are a gang who hold the West Croydon area of south London as their "territory" and sell drugs there. They are ridiculed by most Croydon residents for being soft and unthreatening while thinking that they are some sort of hardened criminals. I often walk past them when I go to an Asian grocery store in the area (they are predominantly black and sit around on top of a fence on a council estate). 67, on the other hand, is a gang from south and they are more feared.

    I'm not affiliated with any gangs btw lol (far from it), but I can inform you that a large proportion of the young people in the less desirable parts of London speak in this weird urban dialect. Most middle class Londoners live in better areas and use standard English.

    Why does everyone start with 'hello, good sir' when translating stuff like this? :rofl:

    And thanks for clearing things up!

    I added some more now, and it's because that's the stereotypical posh way of saying "yo fam, wagwaan".

    Some more translations:
    Roadman- a person who hangs out a lot on the road, often someone who commits crime or is affiliated with criminals
    Boss man- a term used for chicken shop workers (an endearing term)
    Man- it means I or Me
    Paigon- someone's haters/enemies
    Wasteman- similar to paigon

    It's not really made up- a lot of it comes from Jamaican English and other languages' slang being mixed together to form a dialect called 'mulitcultural London english' (look it up). Of course, the majority of normal, non-road, Londoners think this is stupid and prefer to think of it as a butchering of the English language. But if you go to somewhere like West Croydon or most council estates (known as 'the ends' in London that's how a lot of young people actually sound. Luckily, after the riots, a lot of gang members got arrested so their influence is a lot smaller now and confined to only certain parts of London which still have this roadman culture. Gangs are still a danger in a lot of hoods but a lot of places are now less gang-infested and thus less roadmanly

    Lol the only real hood in north is Tottenham mate, alright, maybe Islington as well but that's it. We got way more hoods in south- not just Croydon but Brixton (extra hard), mitcham, stretch am, Peckham (bare roadmans), camberwell, Southwark, Norwood and all dem places fam. No ones safe in these ends even if you ain't repping anyone. You chat sh** here you get shot. We have real steel and coppa (guns) in south unlike those paigons in north with their little shanks.
