Get Ghetto/Go Project

Posted by Brian from Shawnee on December 06, 2004

Similar in usage to the familiar "go postal" or "get medieval". Attributed to unnamed individuals from New York City, December 2004, in Pennsylvania, U.S.A.

Example: "You don't gimme my money, I'm 'bout to go project on yo' ass".

"Project" in this case refers to government owned and subsidized "housing projects" commonly found in ghetto areas of cities in the U.S. Projects and ghettos are notoriously violent, and justice is usually of the street variety.
