"slang is mostly a spoken language an noone [sic] exactly knows how to spell things."
A neat resource of sometimes dubious value (like, "An eightball is literally, in drug terms, an eight of an ounce. There are twenty-eight grams in an ounce, and hence, three and one half grams in an eightball. In places where an eightball is less than three and a half grams, the laws of supply and demand have constricted the quantity in favor of a popular price."
Which is wrong. A "Dime" is a price-based unit. An "Eight ball" is always on weight, and you can get fucked up for shorting on an eight.
Don't ask me how I know this.

Nothing lends you street cred more than picking up the latest hip-hop slang at the Netherlands' Utrecht University's Department of Information and Computer Sciences' website.
