Greetings....:-) ,

I have now a lot of free time(vacation) so I decided to translate one episode of my favourite TV show...:-) I didn't come across to any problems during the whole episode, but three minutes before the end, there is one slang phrase, which I have no idea what it means...Emotion: crying

Context:

Forensic is questioning the black rapper:

Forensic: This bruise on her body matches the heel of your buddy's dress shoe. (No problem for me)

Rapper: Man, forensics be jammin'a brother up. (Please what red marked text means???)

Forensic: No doubt. And you saw him do it. (Of course, no problem again)

Please what does it mean? I believe it's slang, which guys from America have to known...;-)..Thank you in advance.

cheers

Forensics (the science of studying what remains to determine what happened) is causing trouble for an African American man.
Many thanks GG!!! I guess, I had no chance to figure it out on my own. In my point of view, this is really hardcore slang.

Thank you and have a nice day.

Btw: You have nice new elephant...Emotion: wink
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
Thanks Emotion: wink I liked the other one too, but this one looks happier. I love elephants.

Was that an episode of CSI, by any chance? I love that show.

Hi GG,

yeah, it was an episode of CSI (Season7, episode 19). My parents love that show too. I'm translating episodes of CSI especially for them. In addition for me it's a super english training. Thank you again for help and have a nice day.

Forensics (the science of studying what remains to determine what happened)
One of the participants in the dialog seems to be named Forensic (no s), so what does this explanation of forensics (with an s) have to do with the jammin' a brother part?

I am definitely not following this thread. Is Forensic a person, a robot, or a mistaken spelling of something else? And why is Forensic or Forensics speaking these lines?

Jim, does this mean you are not a CSI fan?

Here's another translation: Alas, it seems this science will be the downfall of my companion!
