Geronimo po-lice jumpin out Chryslers

from Nas – 2nd Childhood Lyrics on Rap Genius


Geronimo is a figure of speech named after the Apache Indian chief of the same name. Usually used as a battle cry, Nas is telling us that it was full-fledged war out on the streets — police entered the fray in legions.
This could also reference Geronimo Pratt, a famous Black Panther activist

Geronimo is also what skydivers yell when the jump, just as police is jumping.
