Niggas sleep with the fish like a pelican
Get that snitch 'fore he tell again
Sleeping with the fishes refers to being killed and dumped in a body of water. Someone who sees a crime and informs the police needs to be taken out before he does so again.
Pelicans are birds who enjoy eating fish. There’s no confirmation that they sleep with fish, though.
