What's the haps on the craps?
Shake 'em up, shake 'em up, shake 'em up, shake 'em
Roll 'em in a circle of niggas and watch me break 'em
With the 7, 7-11, 7-11
Craps is a dice game you can win by rolling consecutive sevens or elevens (so, according to his narrative, Ice Cube is faring rather well)
Just to expand on the above: You don’t roll consecutive sevens or elevens… If you roll a seven or eleven on the first roll you win, a two, three or twelve on the first roll loses. Any other number establishes a “point” which you must then roll again before rolling a seven to win. All other numbers (other than 7 or the “point”) are insignificant and rolling continues until a seven or the point is rolled.
