Writing about web page http://www.rapdict.org/Cholo
The rap dictionary surprisingly has an entry about everyone’s favourite plastic lager station on campus:
A cholo is a Mexican-American (or Chicano) gang member, usually wearing Chuck Taylors (or tablitas if there’s a Quincenera going on) Dickies, and a Pendelton button shirt over a white t-shirt. And sometimes a really nice Kangol. The word in Spanish directly translates to “pimp”. In Spain the word means “cool”. It is synonymous with bad ass” or “bad guy”. Vatos, cholos, call us what you will”—Kid Frost (La Raza ).
haven’t got a clue whether its true or not….
