Killers Born Naturally like, Mickey and Mallory
Not knowing the ways'll get you capped like an NBA salary
Great play on words of the 1994 movie starring Woody Harrelson, Juliet Lewis and Tom Sizemore
People who are considered “out-of-towners” are advised to wise up in unknown places or end up not being able to prosper financially
“Capped” has two meanings here. The first relates to caps on NBA salaries, while the second describes getting shot
“Killers Born Naturally”.. Actually, this holds true and is proven; at birth a baby has 50 trillion synapses (neuro connections). This proves that most genetic features that make up your nervous system are predetermined at birth. Just to add this in here to the original meaning to the line.
