Drove to the pad and hit the showers

from Ice Cube – It Was a Good Day Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

He has to look fresh for his date later!

It’s not likely that Ice Cube has a communal shower in his house, so why does he use the plural? Because the plurality is due to the deliberate invoking of the phrase “hit the showers,” commonly heard in conjunction with physical activity, as a reminder that he just finished playing ball.

He’s probably just enveloped in the language of the game!
