Slang Dictionary: "Bucket"

"Bucket" is a word used in New York to describe an oversized fitted cap that's worn as low over the eyes as possible. Joe Budden, who's pictured above is a good example of someone who always rocks his "bucket" low.

On Jay-Z's "Blueprint" album he opens the song All I Need with the words:

"My gear is right... (check)
My bucket is low... (check)
My Rocawear is fittin' incredible..."

Also on the Diplomats album "Diplomatic Immunity" Cam'ron says on the song I Really Mean It:

"Hey yo lock my garage, rock my massage
F*** it, bucket by Osh Kosh Bgosh
Golly I'm gully, look at his galoshes"

I explained the meaning of "bucket" to Jon a few weeks ago and he immediately added it to his own slang.
