cuddie

cuddie n. used vocatively, friend or pal; homie, cuz. Editorial Note: This term appears to originate in Vallejo, California, and is closely associated with the performers Mac Mall and Mac Dre. Etymological Note: The etymological information in the June 2004 cite is unverified, though it is plausible. The term probably is not related to the Scots-English cuddie ‘donkey, ass, or small horse,’ though the latter term is sometimes used as a term of coarse affection to mean ‘a person who is stubborn or obstinate.’ (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
