Where you from? "I don't bang"
Where you stay? "Westside", that's a piru gang to be exact
Well aware they had blue across they hat
Dropped backpack and ran inside of the cul-de-sac
Kendrick was walking and he got G checked by some crips (blue across they hat). He dropped his stuff, ran, and they started shootin at him.
Answering “Where you from?” with a specific area automatically associates you with the gang of that area. He brushes it off with “I don’t (gang) bang.”
