Yea I remember, it was a hot December
Niggas die on top of winter, cause them kids need them toys
When Meek refers to that particular December being “hot”, it means there was alot of crime in the city, and a lot of gunfire.
People were grinding and dying in the streets trying to get enough money to pay for toys for their kids' Christmas presents.
