3 strikes and you be in for life, mandatory

from Yasiin Bey – Mathematics Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Under the controversial (and possibly unconstitutional) “3 strikes” law — spearheaded by Republican governor Pete Wilson in California and since adopted by several other states — after 3 felony convictions, you are automatically sentenced to life in prison (even if the 3rd time you were caught stealing somebody’s junk mail)
