riffing

Definition

Slang

  • noun behaving in a provocative or obstreperous manner. The term, heard in black slang of the 1990s, covers a number of meanings related to the earlier use of the word ‘riff’ in jive talk, including provoking, complaining and boasting, but the logic of the connection is unclear.
