It just got warm out, this this shit I've been warned about
I hope that it storm in the morning, I hope that it's pouring out
In summer everyone hangs out on the street for the nice weather, especially as teens are not in school. Unfortunately, in violent areas (Chicago, Baltimore, Philly, New York, Detroit, and other places) Summer is known as killing season.
Chance hoping for a storm sometime soon; in cities with 4 seasons people stay inside during the winter because it is cold, and also while it rains. While one may not get the benefits of the season, locking yourself up inside is the only way to avoid the violence happening in the streets. Chance’s plea works on both a personal and wider scale, as a rainstorm would leave everyone inside and no-one fighting, effectively calming/cleansing the whole city (brings to mind the phrase “the calm before the storm”, which is ironic in this case).
“It just got WARM out, this the shit I’ve been WARNED about”
People warn everyone about global warming, but in Chicago, the warnings about warmness have a different meaning.
