Your Tuesday Hood Revelation: Are You a Big Homie or a Little Homie?

I hear my "clients" on the West Side say "Big Homie" and other times "Lil' Homie," and I was dying to know the distinction. One guy called me each one on separate occasions, so beyond him calling a teacher any type of homie, the fact that he wavered between the two really threw me.

There isn't a lot on "dem internets" on this subject, but I did find some valuable information from a fellow blogger, TopMackNiggga, and he states the following:

Big Homies are tha OG Niggas and tha Little Homies are tha Up and coming Niggas. Big Homies are always fighting to hold on to the respect the've earned through tha years, little homies are trying to earn initial respect. Both must continuously work around tha clock to maintain respect and status within tha Hood.

Thanks, TopMackNigga! I think I now have a better understanding on this issue, and the next time someone calls me one or the other, I'll correct them. I think that at the bars, for instance, I'm a Big Homie. I've been around these blocks for years, and if these Lil' Homies would let me bend their ear for a moment, they may just find themselves laid because there's a lot of knowledge I could drop on these young bucks.

How about you, Seven Readers? What type of homie are you?

This Homie talk reminds me of a movie called Little Fauss and Big Halsy starring Michael J Pollard and Robert Redford.

Big Halsy sees a busty blond girl and starts feeling her up in public. She complains half-heartedly and later sleeps with him. Then Little Fauss sleeps with her as well.

GB: Those two sound like a good team! A good Double Team!

I have my moments of being both. Generally, I'm a lil' homie. But I tell you what, when it comes to work & school, I'm the biggest homie around. Once I figure out what the hell I'm doing, everyone looks to me.

But for the most part, I'd say I'm a lil' homie. But you know that.

Anroo: This is the perfect post for you. You'd be the Big Homie in every setting you walk into if you just set your mind to it. '

Jov: I don't doubt that one bit.
