This Week's Word: Gouda 

Surveying the latest in Yay Area hip-hop slang.

Pronounced: goo-DUH

Part of Speech: Noun

As Heard On: E-40's "Gouda"

What It Do: "Gouda" represents the latest evolution of food-related euphemisms for money, a progression that began with "Cheese" and continued with "Cheddar." The premium flavor suggests that the holder of Gouda is not just an entrepreneur, but a connoisseur, while its distinctive odor makes it much easier to respond affirmatively to the question, "Ya smell me?"

See Also: Scrilla, Scratch, Paper, Bread, Dough, Loot, Cream, Feddy, Yaper, Chalupa

Example: "When my album drop, I'm-a have so much gouda, I'll be on tycoon status, playboy."
