What does 'screef' imply? I've never seen or heard of currency soaked that way. Or is 'money' itself slang?

This sounds pretty close to UrbanDictionary.

"Inspired by the inspirational Source Teen Lingo dictionary."
This dictionary isn't so you can try to talk like someone you're not. But it is a good reference for those who are seeking to understand a piece of youth culture today. These words are used differently by various teens around the world. Some of these words may have different meaning for teens in one area than another. But overall, this list contains words actively used by mainstream teens today. You will not find many "old school" or outdated terms such as "bad" or "radical."
