‘Crack Ho’ and ‘Hoochie’ Added To Oxford Dictionary

‘More than 2,000 new and revised word entries have been added to the online edition of The Oxford English Dictionary and a small contingent of them come from the P. Diddy and Eminem arena.

For example, the word “benjamin,” meaning “a one-hundred dollar bill” and more generally, “large sums of money” made its way onto the list.

Other hip-hop words that were added:

— “Hoochie,” which means “a young woman who is promiscuous or who dresses or behaves in a sexually provocative or overtly seductive manner.”

— “Thugged out” is defined as “resembling a thug in dress or behavior, tough-looking.”

— And finally, the dictionary editors have added “crack ho,” which is defined as “a prostitute addicted to crack cocaine.”‘
