Cuete in the US Spanish culture

Unread post by alexalonso » March 9th, 2012, 7:24 pm

IN Spanish, Cuete means gun, literally translated to gun, and often times Hispanics use this word as a nick name. Every barrio in LA has to have at least one Cuete, but have you ever heard in English someone using the nick name Gun as often as in the Hispanic world?

Hey, this is my homeboy Gun.

I have heard of Tommy Gun, or Pistol Pete or even Mack 10, but just plain Gun, not often.

closest thing to Gun would be, Sniper or Trigger, and those are still from Hispanic gangs.
