Mash up, Ve-nice, headed for the West
Everything is great, slow down for the dip
On a 100 and 8th and keep mashin
Cube is heading up Van Ness Avenue, heading back home to the Westside. 108th Street is notorious for the large dips in the road, so Cube has to slow down to avoid damage to his car.
The corner in question — http://g.co/maps/7jqnk (W. 108th St. and S. Van Ness Ave.)
Also, it’s clear that Cube is mashin' north on Van Ness in this instance. Since the north end of Van Ness runs out in the heart of the Westside, and everything on Van Ness north of 108th is considered “Westside”, it stands to reason that Cube is south of 108th when he hits that intersection.
