Cuh

noun; clipping of cousin (n.); other word formation type spelling change to better portray sound of clipping
friend. Usually used when one male refers to another male, especially in the streets. This is similar to men calling each other bros as a term of endearment. While bro does not have to mean only your blood-related brother, cuh does not have to mean only a blood-related cousin.
 
“Yo, cuh, what have you been up to lately?”
Etymology : Cuh (n.) is a spelling change to account for the written form of the clipping of cousin (n.) from mid-12c., from Old French cosin "nephew, kinsman, cousin," from Latin consobrinus "cousin," originally "mother's sister's son," from com- "together" (see com-) + sobrinus (earlier *sosrinos) "cousin on mother's side," from soror (genitive sororis) "sister".
