Slang Dictionary: Gully

Gully is a slang word meaning "macho." Let me jack the macho definition verbatim:

1. A strong or exaggerated sense of masculinity stressing attributes such as physical courage, virility, domination of women, and aggressiveness.

On DJ Clue's song, "The Professional" Havok of Mobb Deep says:

"Niggaz think they gully, on the inside sweet like honey."
Also, when Star (the trash talking former radio personality at Hot 97) dissed Big Tigger and Prodigy on air he was said to be "keeping it gully."

On SOHH forum member Majestyx Saba reasons that the word actually comes from Jamaican slang and is related to it's mainstream meaning of "gutter."

Hello pumpkins. I hope you all have a sweet day and keep the cussing to a minimum. God's creation was not to worship stars, it was to make the Lord arise in his kingdom. Both rappers will do fine. Many are not as talented as either! God bless.

It's 2004, I think real hip-hop fans are fed up with these fools telling fantasies about the life of a thug. Tupac was the real Blessing and the Curse to the game because everyone's claiming to be a thug now-a-days. It's ridiculous. If you're a thug be a thug. If you're a Mc be an Mc. Half these guys can't decide what the heck they want to be. That's why I take their words with a grain of salt. The challenge I issue to all you guys screaming thug, is grow-up and be a man, then you'll be proving something to me. Getting in a secluded booth and telling stories about what you've done, or rather what you wish you could do, doesn't prove anything. The real losers in this situation are the kids who idolize that non-sense...

Gulliest moments in Hip-Hop

5. Biggie and 2Pac performance at The Palladium in NYC, waaaay back in the day. Biggie performed “Party and Bullshit” live, slipped on something and fell down on his back...duke never missed a word. Finished the verse on his back with like 50 heads on stage going ape shit!

4. Bushwick Bill shots himself in the eye during domestic dispute.

3. 2Pac shootout with undercover police, I think it was Atlanta?

2. 2Pac, Biggie, Big L, JMJ, and all rap murders.

And at number 1

The entire life and music career of Russell Jones, aka Big Bay Jesus, aka O.D.B
*True story!* Saw ODB in front of what used to be Club Tilt in NYC in, like 93-94. Offered him a blunt, he angrily refused, then laughed it off. He then pulled a short Asian hottie with the line “I’m the ODB bitch, you rollin with this or what?” Made me proud to be an old school b-boy. RIP Dirty.
