Slang Term: Drip -  It is when someone’s look or style is extremely fashionable or sexy.

Yuki, an international student from Japan, is asking Val, her American roommate, what the slang term “drip” means.

Yuki: Hey, Val. I just heard someone use the word “drip,” but he didn’t use it the way I know the word, like when there is a leaky faucet or dripping water. What does drip mean in slang?
Val: Well, it means a person has “swag” or a really cool style. You know, like when someone looks really hot or fashionable!
Yuki: Really? How do you say it?
Val: Let me we don’t pronounce the “g” at the end. Yuki, that dress you are wearing is really drippin. Or look at my shoes, they’re drippin.
Yuki: Oh, I see, we are drippin in style!
Val: Right! Actually, Cardi B’s song from last year is called “Drip,” and she talks about “Diamonds on my wrist, they drippin’ (ice).”
Let me show you on YouTube.  Listen for how she uses “drip” in the song:


Explanation: Drip is often used as an adjective, dripping, to describe someone who is really fashionable, cool, or awesome. We also don’t pronounce the “g” at the end. For example: Did you see that move Frank made on the dance floor? He's drippin right now! It can also be used as a noun. For instance: Look at your clothes! You have got the drip!
