Repping 213 (for life)
213 is the area code for downtown Los Angeles. It is completely surrounded by area code 323. At the time this song came out, 213 served small parts of Compton, but the majority of Compton was 310 and was 310 since 1991. Other small parts of Compton use 562 as their area code as well. None of these area codes are overlays to one another but 310 was overlaid by 424 in 2006.
213 remains the area code that denotes all of LA county in popular media.
