  • hip hop (including graffiti) slang for 'great'. Taken from the root word 'definitive'. Def Jam records took their name from this term. The term originated in New York in the early 1980s. It made it into the Oxford English Dictionary in 1993, whereby Rick Rubin (president of Def American Records) and members of the rap community subsequently had a mock funeral for the word, with a eulogy performed by Al Sharpton.
