Was a goon, 'fore it was cool, You can still see the pain in my eyes
A goon is a low-level gang member who does the dirty work for a gang, including drug running.
As a result of all the drugs This'l has done, his eyes have darkened and he looks weary. He enunciates “Pain” in a similar way to “bane”, meaning darkness.
