Holler? You need to get out more, Raf.
I was simply expressing excitement or enthusiasm. Nothing wrong with that!

It has the effect of being very humorous when a “non-street” person pronounces it correctly, i.e., pronouning the -er properly instead of dropping the final -r like a “street” person would.

It might be funnier if said aloud. I actually borrowed (or rather, stole) the idea from this guy. He says it at the 00:20s point:

But you said Holler, which is to yell. Compared to Holla ;)

Yes, I know what I said. It was for humorous effect. Allow me to elaborate:

“Holla" and “holler" are exactly the same word, just pronounced differently depending on who is saying it and under what circumstances.

Just like brother and brotha. Same word, different pronunciation.

Or sister and sista. Ditto.

Or the n-word, n—er and n—ga. The latter is acceptable in certain situations, as in a friend speaking to another friend: He might say, “What’s up, my n—ga?” and it’s perfectly fine. The former pronunciation, with the -er sound clearly pronounced, however, is never acceptable. But they are both different pronounciations of the same word.

Sista and brotha might be heard, for example, in hip-hop music, whereas sister and brother are used in normal, proper, everyday speech.

If I’m in a situation where “holla” is expected, and instead I say “holler”, it results in a humorous situation.

Did you watch the video I posted? The guy nonchalantly deadpans “holler”, properly pronouncing the “-er” sound, and it is humorous because it was used in a situation where “holla!” would have suited the situation better.

Maybe this would be easier to explain face-to-face, but that’s obviously not going to be possible, unless you somehow end up in Miami some day. :)

This isn't clear enough. Please elaborate.
