We're not saying hate yourself by any means...but don't be mad at the quiz for your score. You gotta hate the player, not the game, man. Not everyone can be an expert at this type of slang, so don't beat yourself up too much - you're probably an expert in a totally different slang area!

You didn't get every one of these right, but you still got enough to prove that you know your stuff when it comes to "street" or "gangsta" slang. You should study up a bit more, because you're real close to being a complete and total expert!

While you may not physically be "straight outta Compton," you certainly have the lingo that would make someone think you were! Unless you're from the streets yourself, or listen to a lot of rap/hip-hop, it's pretty impressive to know this much about "gangsta" slang, so give yourself a pat on the back.
