No. The proper phrasing is "You be bad." In the new modern English all forms of the verb infinitive "to be" is always be. I be, you be, he/she/it be, we be, y'all be.

No. It's incorrect. However, as you see, (even on this site,) many Americans speak poorly, spell poorly and have no clue on how to be grammatically correct. You do realize Phlorence is from Portugal, right?

Take out the word so at the beginning of the sentence. Put a comma before the word and. Also, add a period in the quotation marks or a comma if you plan to continue the sentence after that.

Poor Grammar unless you work the streets at midnight for a few quarters

Correctly worded sentence: One of the actors in an American movie said, 'You is dead." Is that correct?

You be, she be are slang which is trying to gain respectability by linguists who claim it comes from slave dialects. I think it comes from kids too lazy to read and learn grammar that the difference between a minimum wage and a pension plans.
