My girls run The Everglades

Meaning

Sounds like MIA is embodying a parent of a Native American tribe living in the Everglades, Florida. But it really sounds like she is talking about running the area as a criminal leader ‘girls’ suggests she runs a brothel.

Port Everglades is a US Military liberty port, meaning soldiers spend a days leave on dry land.
