Is the be in this sentence well used?
I came across such a comment below one of the YouTube's film:
"The bitches be all over the Gurney in this film" - the Gurney in an artist who are painting plain air and there are lot of women around him in this scene.
I wonder what type of rules somebody used in this sentence if so, to put "be" instead of "are". Maybe he or she wrote it using some kind of slang or something ???
Would you please explain me that or give me a link to read more about such as structure.
Thank you in advance.

Welcome to the forums, Zygmunt Niejaki.
It's a non-standard variation of 'are' in certain British and American dialects.
Don't say it yourself – just be aware of its use.
