Instead of boy with a chopper
That hold the cul-de-sac hostage,
The image of a “boy with a chopper” is very striking. This is referencing someone who thinks he’s protecting his street but he’s actually helping to keep it a violent place with his chopper. Nobody else who lives there can argue with him though because he has the biggest gun.
He could be an actual child or he could just be a grown man who Kendrick is disparaging by saying he still thinks and acts like a child.
