What’s up y’all,

So today we will look at this T-shirt that says “Jus Chill Bru”, but what does that really mean? It’s not that hard but let’s see what it all means!

Let’s break it all down!

1. Jus – “Jus” is how you pronounce the word “just” which has a number of meanings, but I would recommend you to check the Oxford Dictionary – JUST so that you can figure out the best meaning;

2. Chill – “chill” is a way to say “relax”. You can also use this word in a sentence such as:

– Hey, what are you doing?
– I’m at home! Just chilling.

or

– You’d better move out my way. (Angry)
– Chill out, man!

Avril Lavigne, on her song “Complicated”, uses the expression in the sentence “Chill out! What you’re yelling for!” you can hear that on the video below:

But if you want to hear the expression “Jus chill” in a different context, come check this out on the video below “I’mma just chiil”. Song by Traveis Barker feat. Beanie Sigel, Bun B, and Kobe:

2. Bru – It is short for “brother” which does not necessarily mean that you are real brothers. You can be close friends. This reduction may vary “bro”, “brah”, “bruh” or “brotha”. When you have a friend that is like a brother, you can say that “he is my brother from another mother”.

Well, enough information for you to understand the sentence on the Tee.

In conclusion: “Jus chill bru” means “Just relax, my brother!”

In Portuguese: “Relaxa, broder” ou “Fica de boa, meu parceiro”

So, yeah, time to dash off. Do you know other ways to say “Just chill bru”?
How do you say it in your language?
