G-grammar

noun; compounding also clipping in one root word
the system of rules by which words are formed and put together in sentences in a hip-hop dialect
 
This term was formed with compounding (G and grammar as you can see) and a little combination of clipping in one of the roots. "G" has previously been established as a clipping of the word gangster or gangsta. However, it is important to know that this term does not refer to any gangster type, but instead to gangsters affiliated with the hip-hop culture. Therefore, G-grammar is grammar used within the hip-hop dialect.
Etymology : Formed by a compound of the following roots: "G" from gangsta or gangster, which is from American English from gang, and the other is "grammar" from Old French grammaire 'learning'.
