Lately I have found a song called "Hot girl bummer" that says in the lyrics: "Everyday leg day, she be too thick".

And I ask: is that "be" a kind of slang like "ain't" or does it mean something different?

I'm curious because I've never seen it before.

It's a non-standard form of the verb to be that a few people use. I be, you be, he be, and so on, instead of I am, you are, he is. I would recommend against using it, though.

It is a dialect of standard English called "African American Vernacular English" (AAVE). There are various web sites on linguistics which describe the grammar of this language. It is spoken in the inner cities of the US among other places.
