Reminiscing when the LA Raiders
Was in my home, snapback fitted on my uncle's dome
The L.A. Raiders existed in the NFL from 1982-1994; these are key years in both the birth of gangster rap, and the formative years of Game and Kendrick Lamar. “LA Raiders” also refers to the LA Police Department that raided Kendrick’s house when he was little to arrest his Uncle Bobby. He also speaks on this particular event on Look Out For Detox
“Snapback fitted on my uncles dome” means there’s a hat on his uncle’s head, but it’s also wordplay.
Snapbacks are caps that have the snapping mechanism to adjust the size of the hat, while Fitted caps come in specific sizes.
