A habitual abuser of freebase or crack cocaine.
- ‘In plain view too, I ran out with a crowbar hammered it upside his cranium, he fell over dead, but no blood, only dust, he's a basehead.’
- ‘Even though we got into altercations with baseheads and security guards and were almost dog food to a pack of wild ghetto dogs, I'd do it all again.’
- ‘Since there were, I would say, more baseheads at that time than there were cocaine guys that just sniffed cocaine or guys that shot cocaine, they started making money faster.’
- ‘I know a lot of freaks and baseheads want to come see you live.’
1980s: from a shortened form of freebase + -head.
