“Bucket” is a hip-hop word used in New York to describe an oversized fitted cap that’s worn as low over the eyes as possible. Joe Budden, who’s pictured above is a good example of someone who always rocks his “bucket” low. On Jay-Z’s “Blueprint” album he opens the song All I Need with the words:

“My gear is right… (check)
My bucket is low… (check)
My Rocawear is fittin’ incredible…”

Also on the Diplomats album “Diplomatic Immunity” Cam’ron says on the song I Really Mean It:

“Hey yo lock my garage, rock my massage
F*** it, bucket by Osh Kosh Bgosh
Golly I’m gully, look at his galoshes”

I explained the meaning of “bucket” to Jon a few weeks ago and he immediately added it to his own slang.

    The real meaning of “bucket” is an old beat to hell ghetto car. The kind with four bald tires and a leaking exaust system with a blown out muffler and rusting primered paint.
