People say it all the time but what the hell does it mean? Or mean to you?


I know totally random i would just like to hear some opinions.

I personally considered "keeping it real" simply to stay the same, like not changing personality wise. Thats just my view on it tough, and I am admittedly not up to par with the language of the "street," if you will.

A black person's excuse for being ignorant or doing ignorant shit. The person who says that they are "keepin' it real" usually claims to be denying pop culture and sticking with their own thing.

Chris Rock had a good description:
Rock: Nothing makes a ****** happier than not knowing the answer to your question:
(first person):"What's the capital of Zaire?"
(******):"Shit, I don't know that!....Keepin' it REAL!"
Rock: Yeah, real DUMB!
