A hoss is a level higher than a boss. In other words, the guy who gives orders for others to give orders in order to give other people orders and so on and so forth. If you are a hoss, you are a level one beneath God. A hoss is pretty much a divine, or glorious, bad ass mother fucker.
George Washington was a hoss as he whooped Englands ass and lead America into a state of supreme glory. (boss) (bad ass Mofo) (leader) (winner) (overlord)
