When did people start using "like a boss?"

Far as I can tell from the googling, it's from a Saturday Night Live video?

I thought we all hated SNL, right? Because it's not funny and yada yada yada.

Is there a different reference I don't get?

I can't tell you, because the origin of the meme is a secret, available only to those with access to the Internet, or friendly with anyone who does. And I've shamelessly neglected to follow the regular Fark notifications about what "we all" like or hate, of find funny, making do with my own feeble sensibilities.

This has something to do with Carlos Mencia, doesn't it?

He had to be on skates or Heelies or something...

My mind is blown otherwise.

Gee. The mystic wonders of a slippery wet street. *YAWN*

His shirtlessness is what is most bizarre about the video.

I believe you may be right. Traditional moonwalking is an optical illusion, wherein a person walks backwards using movements that look like walking forwards, and involve a foot slide. However, that requires the other foot to be planted while you do it. I don't have frame-advance capability for this, but some quick start-and-stop suggests to me that his feet are sliding backwards even when the other is in the air, which does suggest heelies. He seems to have combined that with regular moonwalking, for a pretty neat effect.

Some traditional moonwalking:

The Master

A cute prank

My personal fave

The SNL skit was a parody of a rap song by a guy named Slim Thug.

YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG! YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE GOING FORWARDS! YOU'RE NOT EVEN WEARING A SHIRT! WHY ARE YOU IN THE ROAD?
