He’ll be gone, gone from the track or from the world?
When you throw in the next lines it’s means that he will probably be out of the streets or gangsta life that force Jim to tote iron meaning carry a gun. Similar to Em’s verse it is ambiguous he could mean out of the hood or out of this world or dead. It’s ambigious on purpose to show if he is not out the the hood life he will probably be dead.
This has nothing to do with JAIL!!! the rhyme was written this year and he was in ‘06 and into '07.
