Coming straight up out the black barrio

from Jay Z (Ft. UGK) – Big Pimpin' Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

“Barrio” is Spanish for “hood”; Bun B is from Port Arthur, Texas, where the majority African-American population was concentrated in the west side of the city during the area’s mid-20th century housing segregation and “White flight”.

Around the same time, Port Arthur quickly became what some claim to be a “dumping ground,” as several chemical and waste plants were built near the area.
