Still getting swoll off bread and water

from N.W.A – Fuck The Police Lyrics on Rap Genius


Swoll means jacked (like his muscles are swollen) — he’s saying even in jail, where they only feed him bread and water, he’ll get ripped. Sorry Ice Cube, but whatever you eat, you need to follow Mark Rippetoe’s workout regimen to get huge

However, bread is a food that contains mainly carbohydrates, which, while important to the muscle building process, are nowhere as close to as important as protein, and bread does not have a lot of that. To say that he could get “swole” off bread and water is something of an impossibility but its a good bit of braggadacio.
