Hive Five: Our Daily Listicle of Musical Musings
Kendrick Lamar fever has been in full effect this week, with lavish praise being heaped upon his excellent new album, good kid m.A.A.d. city. Along with the album being a quality listen front-to-back, Kendrick’s popularized a fun new slang term in “bish,” as heard often on the track “Money Trees.” But in what situations should you use it as well as refrain? We turned to Twitter to come up with this five-point guide in adding bish to your vocab.
1. Use bish to make a statement
Bish, don’t kill my vibe

2. Do not use bish in a formal situation
Ever since I got that Kendrick, the urge to say “Ya bish” to my boss the past few days has been overwhelming. — D’Brickashaw (@DragonflyJonez) October 24, 2012
3. Replace the old b-word with bish in your favorite rap songs

4. Do not use bish when addressing Earl Sweatshirt…
