    Brownie

    Chill - relax
    Cholo

    Faded
    (to) Fly Colors - show affilation to ?
    Fly - hip, cool, happening
    Fool - opposite of above, someone worthy of derision
    (to) Front - put it on, make yourself appear harder / tougher than you are.
    Groovy - cool, funky, fashionable. A good thing
    Homie - 'home boy', someone from your neightbourhood
    Hood - abbreviation of neighbourhood. Local area, home turf
    (to) Keep it on the Low Down - keep quiet about something, keep a secret (?)
    Popped - shot? I know 'pop a cap' is t o shoot someone
    Posse - gang, crew etc. folk you hang with.
    Post
    Sweet - a general term for a good thing
    Tight - someone who is tight is a really good friend

    That's all roughly correct. I had something a little more specific in mind with respect to to Fly Colors. Tight is not quite right, but close enough.

    Correct about On the Low Down, but that definition led to a more specific definition later.

    Bud - Beer - Nope! I mean, it's a brand name of cheap beer, yes, but that's not the bud I meant.

    Fool - opposite of above, someone worthy of derision - Nope.

    Slang is an informal subset of a language. To slang is a slang verb. Neither one means snake.

    Does slang mean snake where you're from?
