break north

Definition

Slang

  • verb to depart, leave. A vogue term in black street slang of the 1990s, the origin of the term is obscure but may evoke the escape of a slave from the southern states. A variety of euphemisms (like its contemporaries bail, book, jam and jet) for ‘run away’ are essential to the argot of gang members and their playground imitators.
