Pass it to the left so I can smoke on me
Sit in a circle and pass the joint around to the left. Kind of an unwritten rule for smokers.
He says “pass it to the left,” because in cities where gangbanging is prevalent, members pass the weed in the direction that they wear their hats. For example, in Chicago, Vice Lords, who wear their hats cocked to the left, also pass their weed to the left. In Compton, Crips wear their hats to the left. For instance, on the song “Drop it Like It’s Hot,” Snoop Dogg calls the “left side” the “Crip side.” Therefore, “pass it to the left,” is a vague reference to Eiht’s being a Crip.
