G

noun clipping
someone who is really cool, usually without trying to be. They might be very good at something or very rich, but it is in general means something positive. This neologism is a clipping of "gangsta", which is a clipping for "gangster". The real change in meaning came in the switch from gangster, which means a sketchy person probably involved in illegal activities. The meanings of "G" and "gangsta" are similar, although "G" is probably a little more broad.
 
That guy drives around in his Mercedes like he's such a G.
Etymology : clipping of "gangsta", which is a clipping of "gangster". Gangster: derived from "gang", most recently from Old English "gang"
