What does ‘WSG’ mean on TikTok?

TikTok’s latest acronym is a little confusing until you know exactly what it means.

People have started using “WSG” in captions and hashtags on social media. The meaning of the word can be hard to figure out even with context. That’s because the three letters are actually shorthand for a two-word phrase. 

What does “WSG” mean on TikTok? 

The term “WSG” stands for “What’s good?” according to Urban Dictionary. The phrase is prevalent in the Black community as a greeting or salutation, similar to “What’s up?” While the expression is usually used in an upbeat or innocuous way, it largely depends on the tone of the speaker. 

Some might recall the infamous moment at the 2015 VMAs where Nicki Minaj called out Miley Cyrus following a Twitter feud regarding Cyrus’ cultural appropriation. 

”Now… back to this b**** that had a lot to say about me the other day in the press, Miley, what’s good?” Minaj said while receiving an award. 

Thus, it can have a negative or positive connotation based on the intent of the speaker. 

TikTokers use “WSG” 

“Wsg y’all!!” @dtx_keiraaa wrote in her caption. 

Meanwhile, @rowanxeldridge used the caption “Wsg” to a video of him lip-syncing. 

The user @.trap8 gave a very helpful lesson on different TikTok slang terms.

“Wyd = What you doing? Hbu = How bout you? Brb = Be right back. Wsg = What’s good? Ngl = Not gonna lie. Istg = I swear to god. Wdym = What do you mean? and Wtt = Watching TikTok,” according to her.
