To keep em seeing red like crips and
Pirus,origins of the bloods, and crips are feuding gangs found in L.A. “Seeing red” means to be angry at someone, as im sure crips and bloods are at each other.
Also, its an extension of the cow/bull/matador theme Lupe runs with in this verse, as it was believed that bulls get angry when they see red.
And i guess you could say the all see red literally, since one of the gangs uses red as its official color.
