The new trendy slang term "Woe" isn't actually as sad as its normal dictionary definition suggests. Instead, it's a New Orleans term that refers to a crew or group of friends. After Drake used the word in his song Know Yourself, rapping "running through the six with my woes," it gained massive mainstream popularity. However, Canadian based rapper Devontée claims it can double as anyone "working on excellence."
The use of the term is relatively straightforward and can be used as a noun in place of your typical "friend." For example:
"I'm going out with my woes tonight."
"I'd do anything for one of my woes."
"Once a woe, always a woe."
