OD, sometimes spelled as Odee or Ode, is an AAVE slang term used to describe something as being over the top, overdone or "extra." The term is used to signify the exaggerated or extreme qualities of a person, idea or object, and is sometimes used in place of the word "really." The term likely originates from New York slang and stems from the term OD or overdose. The term was popularised through rap culture and internet discourse.
