A dusty, thirsty, chick who one keeps around strictly for beating up the hot box. You usually have to gas her up by alluding to the possibility of a relationship in the near future in order to keep getting what’s between her legs. She’s a throwaway broad who a nigga never intentionally expects to ever wife. Side-chicks are usually cool with their status as the jump off due to the fact that they either have no shame or they are merely blinded by love. (Urban dictionary.com)

While she hated to believe that her boyfriend was anything like her father, she continued a downhill relationship with the very fine, sexy, but also very married, Moses Malone. Moses. Unlike her father, Moses never rendered promises to leave his wife, but Egypt plans to do anything necessary to leave her side chick status behind and become the main chick on the arm of her man. Little does she know, Moses’ wife, Marlee, is a force to be reckoned with and will not give up her man so easily.
