So, I hear that a lot of people have a hard time understanding what us New Yorkers say, I guess I can understand that though. See, what people often fail to realize is that our “slang” if you will is designed to fit a lot into a short period of time; after all, the New York minute is only 40 seconds. So here goes another one of those words that say a whole lot in a bit: Feels
Feels is one of those words that can be applied in a variety of scenarios; what scenarios you say? Well…try these for example.
A. Yo, you wanna go to the club this weekend? I hear it’s gonna be live!
B. Nah bro, no can do. I gotta take care of some personal things…
A. Feels, aite then be easy bro.
A. (On the street) Hey what’s up? How you been? I haven’t spoken to you in a minute! You got a sec?
B. Sorry, but I’m in a rush.
A. Oh, feels.
B. Yeah, but you got my math right? Hit me up later
A. We gotta do better, just getting by ain’t enough anymore, we gotta elevate!
B. Word, feels.
You see? Anytime you are in agreement with, or understand where someone is coming from, it’s so much more convenient to reply with a simple “feels”. There, now try it on for size!
