I thought it meant a gun as well. Similar to using the word "tool" or "wrench" right?

Wow, and I thought I was a dork.

And brolic is not a mispronunciation of Broly, it's having the qualities of Broly -thus brolic.
Guess people in the "hood" aren't just dumb. They put a little thought into it.

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.
