As a kid it wasnt a big deal for young boys to get into fist fights and nothing major happened, it was just boys fighting

these days if a fight breaks out in the hood it is only a matter of time before knife, guns and other weapons start getting pulled and people begin to lose their lives, this escalation of violence is extremely dangerous and its hard for boys to just be boys without people losing their lives.

First of all the line as written is incorrect. The correction is “wasn’t ‘nuff for a boy to get a straight fade.”

This is still a reference to hairstyles. In contrast to the elaborate hairstyles of ~30 years ago, it is now common for young men to wear a buzz-cut or similarly practical style.

Add a suggestion

AIDS became a big issue int he U.S. around the late 80’s and Trick is saying it wasnt something he had to worry about as a kid growing up as kids now a days have to

"He know, we hit King of Diamonds / Everybody throwing C-N..." (Game – 500 Bars (Otis Freestyle)) | accepted

its also the strip club where trick daddy and lil wayne got in a fight and trick threw his cigarette at wayne, beat his ass and wayne ended up getting kicked out the club

http://www.tmz.com/2013/04/11/lil-wayne-trick-daddy-fight-miami-strip-club-king-of-diamonds/

the fight was most likely in response to wayne dissing the heat which trick and most of miami (including myself) took as a diss towards miami-dade county as a whole which is the county that welcomed wayne in after his shit got destroyed in katrina

"Hey girl, welcome to the Grammy life" (Consequence – Whatever You Want (Remix)) | pending
"Common passed on this beat, I made it to a jam" (Kanye West – Everything I Am) | accepted

This exchange of beats between the two chicago MC’s started in early 2005 when they were working on Com’s album “Be”. An album that Kanye produced 9 out of the 11 tracks and then used any rejected beats on his album later that year, “Late Registration”.

One of the tracks off of Late Registration is actually a Common track from Be that didnt make the cut but then made its way on to Kanye’s album
http://rapgenius.com/Kanye-west-my-way-home-lyrics

This most likely a left over beat from early work on the Be album that still hadn’t been used

or possibly a left over beat from Common’s 2007 project “Finding Forever” which was also mostly produced by Mr. West

"Niggas come from out of town, I like to show her off" (Kanye West – Homecoming) | accepted

He likes to show off that he is from Chicago and represent his city to out of towners by most likely wearing Chicago gear such as anything Bulls, Bears, Blackhawks, Cubs or White-Sox.
