I got a shell in the bag
Bag = Rashad’s trusty Honda Civic
The line “shell in the bag” could mean three things. A shell is a common term for a bullet, so Isaiah could be locked and loaded, proving he was somewhat meant for the corners. Also, shell is a slang term for marijuana, so Isaiah could be with a big ass girl on his way to Cali blazing it up. In some cities, shell is also a slang term for a good looking girl, which Isaiah refers to in the next bar.
