What does "the fade" mean?

I have a quick question. Somebody I was talking to today said they have "the fade" and they want to "get low"? They said they were talking about a party favor. Are they talking about heroin when they say they have "the fade"? I've never heard that terminology before.

Re: What does "the fade" mean?

No idea whatsoever I couldn't even hazard a guess. I check the Urban Dictionary and it makes no reference to drugs of any kind, it is as follows...

Quote:
1. the fade
when someone in the relationship starts losing interest and keeps you hanging until they dump yo'ass
i'm feeling the fade... she used to want to jump my bones all the time.


2. The Fade
The sickest stoner rock band to come out of Towson, MD in like forever.
Dude... I was just listening to the Fade. They're soooo good.
That's all she wrote.

Re: What does "the fade" mean?

I can't imagine what being on the fade means but "get low" definitely means "get intoxicated" and can either indicate a preference for downers, or more likely in the context of "the fade" I would imagine it's slang for getting 'high' on uppers.

Party favor almost universally means drugs unless it's a particularly old woman talking plans for a get together.

It just occured to me that "the fade" could easily be a reference to a stimulant comedown.

mountainmanOG added 2 Minutes and 30 Seconds later...

It could also easily be a reference to opioid withdrawal now that I think about it. Whatever it is it's safe to assume it's not good because the solution is to "get low" which has GOT to mean "get high".

Re: What does "the fade" mean?

Where I live if someone has fade or the fade it means they have money to throw for drugs. Normally someone will have fade if they are going to smoke with you, or just want a line or any small amount actually. But it depends on the context. That's my best guess

Re: What does "the fade" mean?

I'm completely guessing here but I imagine "the fade" is referring to being intoxicated (like when people say they're "faded", it usually refers to marijuana). If it was in reference to heroin, perhaps they meant nodding. I certainly feel like I'm fading in and out when I'm nodding on opiates. "Get low" definitely seems like a term for getting high on downers like heroin or benzos. Down is synonymous with low, so "get low" is like saying "do a downer". Not sure on any of that. It was my best guess

Re: What does "the fade" mean?

Completely guessing like everyone else, but I followed Solinari on the Urban Dictionary path, and found out that "low" is a slang term for heroin, apparently in the Baltimore/DC areas, but possibly in other places, too. It says to "get low" means to get high on H, but when he said he needs to "get low" he has to get, as in buy, heroin.
To fade means to throw in money, usually for drugs, including alcohol, which lfrider92 confirmed.
So, maybe this guy's party favour is throwing in money for heroin, for the people who go to this party. I mean, often at parties one person is assigned to get this or that drug in bulk for everyone, so I guess this guy is that person.
Are you likely to meet this person again at any point?
Ask him what he's on about ..
