Being in the hood I done traveled to the Slauson
Being on the turf I done seen em kill for colors
When he was on Slauson Avenue in Crenshaw (Los Angeles) he saw people die over colors (Blood vs. Crip) which is different than how it is in the Bay Area. Slauson’s the only other hood he names besides West Oakland; he’s saying it goes down in both Northern and Southern California.
He’s probably also referring to the movie Colors, a movie about Blood and Crip warfare in Los Angeles in the cocaine 80’s.
