But them jail cells be turning niggas into dinner
So they sing in the summer, be home by the winter
Interrogation room be turning niggas into tenors
And he’s no singer, but put him on the block, he got that perfect pitch
A very clever line by Phonte: While in jail, many inmates are raped and essentially become other inmates' slaves. The threat of doing jail time scares many people into snitching (“singing”) on their friends just to get a shorter jail sentence. Tenors are singers within a certain vocal range. Having a perfect pitch relates to singing as well, but Phonte is also referring to having the perfect sales pitch to sell your drugs. .
