Cash we slidin' in, they always call me safe kid
This line is a double entendre:
- The literal meaning means that Action always keeps his money safe in a bank or his own personal safe — hence safe kid.
- The figurative meaning is continuing with the baseball terminology presented in the previous and next line. In the line, “Numb your face like the bass did,” bass is a homophone with base. In baseball, you steal — or slide — into bases; Umps will call the runner safe if he isn’t tagged out before he reaches the base. This ties in with the next line, “Lou Brock,” in that Lou Brock was known for being a great base stealer.
