What does sauce mean?


Sauce is a slang term that means style and is often used to describe a person who is overly confident or flashy. It comes from the idea that sauce, especially hot sauce, is responsible for adding the extra "flavor" to a meal.

Sauce was partially made popular by DJ Esco's, Future's, and Lil Uzi Vert's 2016 song "Too Much Sauce" where they repeatedly brag about having too much sauce. The term is similar to the swag, beast, OG, and baller.
