Word Up, YO! Week 14

This week on Word Up, YO! we were on the lookout for the Fugazi.

The poseurs, the fake, the imitation. All of that fugazi was on our radar.

We were rewarded with a brilliant post from Booyah’s Mama. She calmly explained how she gets fugazi vegetables into her family. And it didn’t include no fugazi bacon.

This Made Man is moving up in the ranks and earned her promotion. Congrats Booyah’s Mama! You’re now a Hitman.

Angie of On the Rocks and Straight Up proudly upheld the standards of the Nerd Mafia this week when explaining the ultimate mothering fugazi. Congratulations, Angie!

In the eyes of the Nerd Mafia, you are now a Made Man!
