In an interview a while ago, Gilbert Melendez said the following:

"Nick's [Diaz] is my Homie."

Maybe I'm old now that I'm in my 40's, but I always wondered, what exactly is a homie? Certainly, it can't mean homo can it?

if you're in your 40s that means you were around for the gangster rap era in the late 80s, early 90s. and you don't know? even if troll, VTFD.

canofsticks,

please forgive me for not being "into" the gangster rap scene throughout those years. So, can anyone actually DEFINE what a HOMIE is?

A homie is a good friend, short for homeboy or homedog. Probably derived from living in the same neighborhood. Not rocket science Phone Post

I, too, subscribe to deductive reasoning. When in doubt, figure it out. Phone Post 3.0

If you've made it to 40 and think that homie means homo, it's time to kill yourself. You are an oxygen thief and we can tolerate it no more. Phone Post 3.0

A homie is a Mexican-American California thing. Never heard of the term growing in Texas since the 60's until I met this Cali dude in high school in the 80's.

Homie (from "homeboy") is an English language slang term found in American urban culture, whose origins etymologists generally trace[1] to African American Vernacular English from the late 19th century, with the word "homeboy" meaning a male friend from back home. The words have also had similar use in Latino and chicano communities in the United States, starting in the late 1960s/early 1970s and continuing up to the present. As slang terms, the words have come to have variations in meaning, depending on local subcultures in a region, without the stability provided for dictionary-defined words. The term has also been traced to military slang.

If you'd said you were 60...or from another country, or English wasn't your first language, perhaps it'd have been a more plausible troll attempt.
