    Source : https://www.urbandictionary.com/defi...059736#5059736

    Do you use "slavin" a lot as " work hard"? What is the meaning of the second "slavin away"?

    1. working
    excessively hard

    2. look at them slavin away

    There's no need for the non-standard spelling "slavin". Slaving away, which most Americans pronounce the same as "slavin away", is a common idiom for working hard.
