PANCOCOJAMS EDITOR'S NOTE
"Oldheads" is a colloquial African American term that refers to old men who wear outfits and behave in certain ways, including in ways that may have been in style among certain "hip" people decades ago. "Oldheads" also have certain vernacular sayings that they are known for.
Another term for "old heads" is "unc" (also given as "unk"). "Unc" ("unk") is a shortened form of the word "uncle", a referent for a brother of one's father or mother and to an aunt's husband. In addition, in African American Vernacular English "unc" ("unk) is also a midly affectionate informal term for (African American) male relatives and male non-relatives who are middle age or older. "Unks" are known to wear certain types of clothes and act & talk in certain characteristics ways that many younger people consider to be both humorous and irritating.
An "ultimate unc" is an unc who epitomizes the looks and actions of an unc.
