What is the meaning of sentence "straight outta + city + state" ? For example: Straight outta Holland Michigan.


It's a slang term that blew up with the release of the movie Straight Outta Compton. It just means that whoever said it grew up in said area. If I say, "Ayy, wuss poppin' B? I'm straight outta Brooklyn b. Check out my timbs B. YErrrrrrr," then my "straight outta" statement, along with additional context, such as "Yerrrrr," would reveal that I was raised in Brooklyn, New York.
