grill
 n.— «What would be “Hello, my name’s Billy. What’s yours, my new friend?” becomes “Sup,” followed by a long, hard stare (a grill).… Even though most of us have never been in a real fight, the ice grill has been perfected over the years, and can be unleashed in Red Square at a moment’s notice.» —“Anatomy of a White Suburban Hip Hop Fan” by Julian Brizzi Vermont Cynic Mar. 8, 2005.
