Aiight: That's just "all right." "How are you today?" "Aiight." It's a Southern American English pronounciation and isn't just limited to rappers or African Americans.
Dat: That. African Americans, Cajuns, Southerners, New Yorkers, and some others use it. The New Orleans Saints (an American football team in Cajun country) once had a slogan: Who dat say dey gone beat dem Saints? You see (or hear) 'dat' in Jamaican English, too.
Holla: This comes from "holler," which is a Southern and Appalachian American word used by both blacks and whites, and it means "to yell."
