It's something I picked up from video games. For instance in GTA V video game a slang language like "Whats up, homie?" or "See ya, dog!" is used all the time. My question is - under what circumstances can I address a person like this?
From what I know "homie" is more or less neutral. For instance it was used by some hosts of Equal Three show to address an audience. Not so sure regarding safety of "dog" though. Could it be considered offensive?
