“Wagwan cuz” may not be your typical American street greeting but for many english speaking cities its a staple. From Toronto to London and back to the Caribbean, slang words like “safe”, bruv, cousin, cozo, bredrin, dun know” are every day slogans brandished by people from all ethnic groups. Mostly due to West Indian (mostly Jamaican) immigration with traditions being held strong, these words now dominate the urban landscape and cross all colours, ethnic groups and religions. Just shows how unorganized yet organized we all are as P-Money demonstrates. Check him out this weekend in Gothenburg, Sweden alongside my boys Balkan Brigaden @ Roda Sten 1 this saturday!

“ya get me?”
