I'm 187 proof, streets or the fucking booth

from Freddie Gibbs – 187 Proof Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Gibbs cannot be killed, physically or lyrically.

“187” is the section in the California Penal Code which defines murder.

The phrase “187 proof” can also be interpreted as a boast of strength; a 1.5 ounce serving of a spirit rated at 80 proof, such as vodka, is 40% alcohol by volume constitutes one standard drink. 187 proof would equal 93.5%, or almost pure alcohol. In short, Gibbs is far more potent than the average rapper.
