A street kid gets arrested, gonna do some time
He got out three years from now just to commit more crime
A businessman is caught with 24 kilos
He’s out on bail and out of jail
And that’s the way it goes, raah!
A reference to the bias the courts will have when it comes down to crime comitted between the rich and the poor. A petty crook will recieve a lenient sentence, with zero chance of rehabilitation, whilst and upstanding rich businessman is caught with a mountain of coke and receives nothing more than a slap on the wrist
