It's the murder cap'
Another double entendre:
– Compton is the “murder capital” of the United States
– To “cap” someone is slang for murdering them — the “murder cap.”
Dre shouts out his hometown of Compton as the murder capital, but other rappers have claimed this title for their own cities:
1. Jay-Z in “Lucifer”
2. Kanye in “Murder to Excellence”
3. Lil Wayne in “BM J.R.”
Both of these claims are a bit off, though — statistically, Flint, Michigan has been proclaimed the murder capital, and it still holds on to that title.
