There is a riot breaking out between blacks and nortenos.

Cops, trying to maintain order, resort to using Mini 14’s, a small, lightweight, semi-automatic carbine rifle.

He is no stranger to this. In fact, in 2010, he himself was brutally stabbed and sliced 8 times in a prison riot over his refusal to produces a group of inmates album.

He is wild and untamed, he doesn’t care if you’re bigger than him or if you think you’re tougher, harder, whatever. Give him his space. Or he’ll show you otherwise.

Because he is serving 31 years to life, he has to serve a minimum of 31 years and his release date is unknown. He could get out, he could not. It all depends.

Because of this, he doesn’t care if he goes into the SHU because it’s not like he’s going anywhere anytime soon.

He shot a dude that crossed him, but he assumes that the victim will snitch on him instead of taking vengeance upon him.

Being in solitary confinement can have damaging effects on the brain. Symptoms include hallucinations, and other changes in perception, as well as cognitive problems including memory loss, difficulty thinking, and impulsiveness. These effects may together constitute a unique syndrome, sometimes called “SHU syndrome”.

He is clearly suffering some of the symptoms after being there for at least 66 days. His hair is braided, looking wild (ie. Coolio), and he hasn’t had any way to keep up his hygiene.

All because some dude crossed him.

"A baby born soft, we beat the candy out him" (Lloyd Banks – Predator) | pending

Maybe it’s more like, if a baby is born soft, they’ll beat the weakness out of him and make him a harder male.

"Matter of fact, he my favorite ’cause he tip me with E's" (Kendrick Lamar – Sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst) | accepted

This actually sounds more like “he tips me with ease” meaning, he doesn’t have a problem paying her for her services and tipping her extra.

This is a battle rap that isn’t in reference to his conspiracy charge.

"See my mind ain't right, just ran out of my Prozac" (Brotha Lynch Hung – Death Dance) | pending

BLH suffers from manic depression and [Prozac]http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0000885/ is used to help manage that. He’s saying he ran out of pills after admitting to not having a “right” mind.

Tech elaborates a bit more about this on XXL

"But arent you the same cat that sat back when they brough..." (Ice Cube – Gangsta Rap Made Me Do It) | accepted

This is a shot to the Congressional hearings about Rap lyrics that featured Master P, David Banner and others testifying in court about them. This album was released in 2008 and the hearings were held in 1997.

The music video just refers to the same politicians that were doing the hearings were also the same ones that were around during the cocaine scandal.

"Drop out of college and sell 'ses" (Killer Mike – Willie Burke Sherwood) | pending

He also had a kid to take care of and being in college wasn’t bringing in the income fast enough.

"Used to be crack money, then I got my sneakers / With" (Lloyd Banks – Predator) | pending

This line references to sneakers as the shoe to run in. He sees the prize in his sights and he’s running to it and he’s so fast on his feet and you shouldn’t even try to look at it because you have no chance at beating him.

To explain this a bit more, Killer Mike says that America tells people that all they gotta do to succeed is to get a job and “think positively.” But as explained in the first verse, if you’re under educated, you don’t have the skills needed for higher paying jobs, so you’re stuck with low-wage job or no job at all; you’ve exhausted your unemployment. Whatever you’re making, it’s not enough to pay for your car and home, which are expensive even in poor neighborhoods.

The reality brought here is that all that positive thinking doesn’t matter if the reality isn’t matching those thoughts because you have no control over the entire situation.

That’s cause Canada is part of the larger scheme.
