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.


Use of the term "odee" was prevalent on Twitter as early as 2008.[1][2][3] The earliest notable use of the term on the platform took place after 2015.

On April 17th, 2009, Urban Dictionary[7] user Bebaqiirl posted a definition for "odee," describing it as meaning "hella." The post gathered over 180 likes on the website in 14 years (seen below).

Ratchet is similar to ghetto or very poor maintenance (used to describe people). Lit means wild or similar to turnt up as mentioned other places in the post. Od/odee just means a lot of something. Ex: Yo that party was odee fun. And calling someone a butta just means they're cute or good looking. This is not to be confused with buttahface/butterface which means a girl has a nice body/everything about her is nice BUT HER FACE. Source: I'm a junior in high school.
