    You are very wise. See “Drake Responds to accusation of stealing UK slang by saying it is NOT UK slang, but Caribbean slang,.. borrowed by both Brits and Canadians. Also; It is more of an “Entire Carribean islands” slang than just Jamaica mon! Just about ALL carriblean countries that have English as their mother tongue use the same slang terms.. but you def no wasteman brah.. you know ur stuff, and I am impressed, because it seems so FEW, even in the media, are aware that its also borrowed by Canadians too and not just the Brits, For this I applaud you :-)
