About

Jittleyang, also written Jikkuhlang, and Fuhuhluhtoogan, also written Fuhuhlatoogan, are Baltimore slang terms from the Maryland city that originally went viral in the Baltimore Accent Rap Song, aka "City Girls" by Bippleyipsnipp. Bippleyipsnipp, real name Richard Webster, is a Baltimore barber and rapper who popularized the terms starting in 2021. After his song went viral in 2023 and earned meme attention on Instagram and TikTok, usage of his slang terms continued into 2024, predominantly going viral via the question, "Are you a jittleyang or a fuhuhluhtoogan?" spreading on TikTok.

Origin

On March 2nd, 2021, the YouTube[1] video for "City girls actupuhluhgoot remixuhten" by Baltimore rapper Bippleyipsnipp was posted to the channel MrBUHDUGGETZ DUGGETZ, gaining over 4 million views in three years (shown below).

The channel had to cut the video's song, due to a copyright strike on the beat, leaving only the intro and outro. On November 20th, 2023, the channel reposted the full-length music video to YouTube,[2] gaining over 63,000 views in five months (shown below).

In the song, Bippleyipsnipp uses the words "jittleyang" and "fuhuhluhtoogan." Bippleyipsnipp likely used the words before March 2021 on his Instagram[10] account. However, all of his Instagram posts before November 2021 have been deleted.

Usgae of the word "jikkuhlang" date back to a tweet shared by X[3] user @KURRRUPTSHON on February 11th, 2021. On the next day, X[4] user @F1LTHYwakeup also tweeted "jikkuhlang." It's unconfirmed if the aforementioned X users sourced the term from Bippleyipsnipp.

Meaning

On March 26th, 2022, Bippleyipsnipp, real name Richard Webster, published his book Jikkuhlang the Dictionary.[5] Although the word is in the title, the book doesn't directly define "jikkuhlang" (aka "jittleyang") but defines a similar word, and likely prefix, "jikkal" which means "an attention grabber" (shown below, left). The suffix "-yang" is seemingly used in Webster's slang as a nonsensical emphasis.

Similarly, "fuhuhluhtoogan" is not directly defined in Jikkuhlang the Dictionary. However, similar words like "fuckalyoot" and "fuckalyew" are defined, both being related to good intercourse (shown below, center and right).

Spread

In 2021, TikTokers joked about the slang terms, using them to bait people who wanted to know their meanings. For instance, on August 6th, 2021, TikToker[6] @itsholyjay posted a video in which he acted like he was going to reveal the definition but then revealed little info, gaining over 1.4 million plays and 251,700 likes in three years (shown below, left).

On April 6th, 2022, TikToker[7] @syxontop used the word "jittleyang" in a video, gaining over 4 million plays and 572,200 likes in two years (shown below, right).

On January 24th, 2024, TikToker[8] @_shawwttyy posted a video of his younger sister yelling the question, "Are you a jittleyang or a fuhuhluhtoogan?" at their mother. The video received over 19.7 million plays and 2.4 million likes in three months (shown below, left).

The video inspired a slew of new memes about both slang terms. For instance, on April 16th, 2024, TikToker[9] @temucart3097 posted a Slow Fade-In meme that read, "How it feels being a jittleyang in a world full of fuhuhlatoogans," earning over 959,800 plays and 225,000 likes in a day (shown below, right).
