True, I mistated by saying brolic is just a mispronunciation, i wasn't intending that post to put anyone "hood" down, i grew up in the projects myself and remember when people started saying it. I never said it was dumb. Thanks for explaining it better than I did.
Good point on gully too, and although i know its not a "source" per se, urbandictionary points out the sf2 theory as where it came into recent popular usage from too. That's just how I remember it first being used as well, but if i choose to mistrust my memory, at least i'm not pulling it out of thin air. Indian for street makes sense too, assuming by way of Jamaican slang. I'm a huge dork, thanks. I just thought they were interesting etymologies to point out since they were mentioned on this episode, and wanted to add how I had experienced them being used in NY in the 90s.
Love the show btw, getting better each week.
