Plus nobody I know got killed in South Central LA
Today was a good day
Despite the usual high death tolls in Compton in the 1980s and 1990s, none of Ice Cube’s associates were killed. This continues the good luck he’s experienced, and this line also speaks to the havoc and danger that lurks in the streets of South Central LA. The way the line is presented stands to represent that if someone he knew did get shot, it wouldn’t be out of the ordinary.
