Here, "We down" means "We're tight, we're together, we're connected, I trust you" (take your pick).Dear all,
Could you please help me out with a difficulty in the novel by Dennis Lehane 'Gone, Baby, Gone'?
“Heard you lost a bag of cash,” Broussard said.
“You did?” Cheese rubbed his chin. “…Give it to my man Patrick, he’ll hold it for me till I get out.”
“Aww, Cheese,” I [Patrick] said, “that’s touching.”
“We down, brother, ’cause I know your shit’s straight.”
It's a meeting of two former schoolfellows one of them is a private detective the other is a convict. The scene is jail.
I guess 'We down, brother' means something like 'don't mention it'. Is this right? If not could you please teach me?
Do you think "would you be down with that" and "would you be down for that" are not the same? I've dug up this thread about the difference between "fine with me" and "fine for me". I'd like to know if what mgarizona said could be applied in this case.If the only way to get same-sex marriages unopposed was to allow polygamy and sibling (inbred) marriages too, would you be down for that?
