Splash passing cars, now run ghetto tyrants
These faces carry scars (mega large)
Splash passing cars could be referring to a drive by from the ghetto overlords, or tyrants. In this interpretation the order of the hit leaves an emotional toll on the kingpin through mega large scars, or scars deeper than most. Though, I don’t believe this to truly be Ox’s expression. I believe he refers back to the previous line, tying the chaos of the hydrants water to “splash passing cars”, or influence those that pass by. I think it also refers to earlier, where in the beginning he speaks of street corners, he says here that the hydrants (ghetto tyrants) splash passing cars (influence young locals to deal and slang). These faces carry scars(speaking of the youth, not the tyrants) Mega Large (either the youth feel “mega Large”, like they are respected and a part of something, refering to their rep. or that even though they are young their scars [actions and painful experiences] make them mega large [grown and adult in youthful bodies.] I believe it is one of those interpretations.
