I've been shook since I seen the Haiti Kid in Penitentiary 3
The 1987 film Penitentiary III features a ferocious little person named (wait for it) Midnight Thud, whom the sadistic guards would throw in your cell to kick your ass.
Thud was portrayed by midget wrestler The Haiti Kid. Does the whole song make a little more sense now?
RA seems to be saying that the dread of a psychotic midget beating the shit out of him at midnight is what has kept him out of prison.
