NYC & The Bay Area are tops in this category. I don't think anywhere is seeing these 2. Honorable mention to D.C. & Philly (Philly's kinda affiliated with NYC too).

Being biased I have to go with NYC, there's new words almost everyday. My normal speech is laced with slang. A lot of the time you won't know what's going on if you don't know it.

Hella and Hecka are ANNOYING WORDS. Drive me up the wall. They just sound stupid in my opinion

I've heard Hella being used in a lot of places, I dont think I ever heard it in NYC though. The NYC equivalents to Hella are: Mad, OD, & Wild (I bet there's more).

Hella is also kind of annoying to me too, it sounds awkward. I've never heard Hecka before, sounds even worse.

cake in nyc means money.

and bamma is used to describe a southerner in ny. its not about weed which is what i was saying earlier. another region can't claim that if its used to mean something totally different.

IDK how is it is aound u...but in my area (Bronx) and where ever im at (Uptown/Queens) it refers to a girl's ass.

Money in the BX n Uptown is paper or guap.
