In Russian language videos I will hear something to the affect of "ya boi." What is being said when something that sounds like, "ya boi," is being uttered?

In the southern US, it's a racial slur.

it means Language removed as an interjection and as a verb... (my wife is russian)

Barabino, you have been on this forum long enough to know better and trying to get through censorship via commas is not permitted. This is a family forum.

I understand that, but I had to translate it... as a matter of fact, russians curse a lot :-(

I'd rather not detail it out just to be safe. You may need to replace the A with an O, but certainly use the voice of foghorn leghorn.

My first thought was 80s rapper Flavor Flav.
