A: Nah (slang) = no

Sometimes when Americans are speaking casually, they will say "man" or "dude" instead of a person's name.

gotta = got to (have to, must)

lol = laugh out loud, just used to show laughter in text.

beat them to it = do something first before someone else does, or another group of people do. hard to explain that phrase.
