Keep your eyes peeled for the COBRA unit
Cause they known for jumping out of black Chevy trucks and through the fog
Here come the Red Dogs, I'm busting out around the corner in my hog
The COBRA unit was an anti-drug task force, also known as “the jumpout boys”, because they would surprise unknowing drug dealers by rolling up on them in black vans and arresting them before they saw it coming. The Red Dog Unit (acronym for “Run Every Drug Dealer Out of Georgia”) performed similar tasks. Combined, these two units made it very difficult for a hustler like Gipp to get by.
If it’s any consolation to you Gipp, the Red Dog’s disbanded in 2011 after complaints of unnecessary searches and excessive force. (source).
