shotta
 n.— «“Shottas,” a slick but dull new shoot-’em-up from Jamaica, doesn’t penetrate the mysteries of high-rolling, high-risk thug life. It perpetuates them. In the local patois, the title means “gangsta,” and that appears to be the most aspired-to occupation.» —“Violent and slick ‘Shottas’ lacks perception and a pulse” by Wesley Morris Boston Globe (Massachusetts) NOv. 3, 2006.
