Miami has to be the region with the WORST slang. It is so damn annoying. Here we use "bro" to end every sentence. You know-a-mean, bro? We also use "right quick" to mean really quick or in a hurry. Like let me have a sip of your drink right quick. I know, it doesn't make grammatical sense. We also have the usual: brah, bruh, bro, doe, daw, yo,. And this is not including the chonga slang, I don't even want to get into that. Less juss say ees reelee anno-ying, kayy broo?

I hate the word "bro," but I think many people across the south use "right quick" or "right fast."

Hmm I didn't know that, although I have been hearing right quick for the past 15+ years... pretty sure it started here. At least we can share our misery and hatred of that stupid phrase with the South.

Yeah, annie is right. right quick is used alot throughout the south. I known in Texas, that and with the quickness ( I think that came from the Bay, not sure) is used alot. But right quick is something even I say. BTW, yeah, I here Miamians sometimes put much in their sentence. Like, "I didn't even much give her that my number." I always laughed at that. I think that's said throughout Florida. I also hear Miamians replacing here with huh sometimes. Don't ask me to use that in a sentence because I can't describe it.
