But got caught up with the jooks you woulda thought I was from Brooklyn
The Jooks were a crew from Brooklyn responsible for robberies. (cf. Biggie’s “Niggaz Bleed”)
Brooklyn is notoriously famous for robbery — “Manhattan keep on makin' it, Brooklyn keep on takin' it”
Cam'ron is all the way Uptown in Harlem, but if the price is right, he’ll take the Subway to the “BK Broiler”..
“Jux” is also slang for robbery.
