Boss' man?

Mr C. was called by Hutch as BOSS' MAN, so he's not the superior boss anymore?

"Boss Man" is an American slang term, from the south, for the superior boss-the blues singer Jimmy Reed has a great song called "Big Boss Man". Hutch and his wife have distinct southern accents.

Not Boss' Man, Boss Man.  The Big Cheese, Top Dog, Le Grand Fromage, the One Who Must Be Obeyed.

Fond of a curry, too...

I was hoping that you guys would name it a slang term Boss Man or sth, that's a relief 😛 Main reason of my concern was an official translation on polish HBO as it was really <<boss' man>>... and I was confused at first. There was no fans' reaction or new theories about it after E09, however I've decided to make it simple and certain, thanks a lot!

It's not exclusively American, nor even Southern US American.  It's widely used here in the UK, which is where it probably originated, most likely from our colonial Empire days.
