n.— «Mr. Gasia, a busboy who works in Spanish Harlem, spoke last week through a friend and interpreter. His style “comes from people of color but with a Latino twist,” he said. The idea is to look, he said, “chingaso—ready to fight, like a gangster.”» —“First Hip-Hop, Now Cholo Style” by Ruth La Ferla New York Times (9-1) Nov. 30, 2003. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
