Back in the Chi, them Folks ain't from Moe Town

from Kanye West – Diamonds from Sierra Leone Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

In Chicago and much of the Midwest much of the gangs are aligned to one of either two factions The Folks or Peoples. Among the gangs in the People Nation are the Black P. Stones who are also called the “Moes” because of their connections to the Moorish Science Temple of America

Moe Town is the nickname of one of the Moes' South Side hoods. A quick Google search suggests it’s bounded by 51st to 57th and Ashland to Union. Naturally, Folks don’t come from there.
