Damn! And when its black on black, that makes it shitty Hood Took Me Under by Compton's Most Wanted

Black on Black crime in the urban city has to be the worst MC Eiht states.

It’s also shitty because the LA cops don’t give a shit about black people killing each other, and violence in the early ‘90s gave way to more violence.

Make both your eyes run The Genesis by Elzhi

This is enjambment, the line continues onto the next line.

Elzhi is so good, he can make you cry while listening to him rap. Not only that, but he’ll leave you looking like Gogo Yubari in Kill Bill after you’re done listening to him (see the next annotation for more details).

This ain't no East coast, West coast, none of the above
I'm from Chi, I went to Cali, niggas gave me love
The Bitch In Yoo by Common

Common is saying how this battle between Cube and him isn’t like the East vs West where if you where from the West, people on the East would hate you like for example The Source Award 1995:

Common said he was getting love in Cali where Ice Cube is from. Also, Common is from Chicago, which is on neither of the coasts.

From the bounce to the ounce, it's all our culture The People by Common (Ft. Dwele) 1

From dribbling a basketball to drug dealing, it’s the culture of the people of the ghetto where Common is from (which is Chicago, Illinois).

It could also be a reference to Zapp and Roger Troutman’s single, “More Bounce to the Ounce,” a classic in hip-hop culture.

The aforementioned song has been sampled by quite a few tracks… including MC Breed’s “Ain’t No Future in Yo Frontin',” The Notorious B.I.G.‘ “Goin' Back to Cali,” and E.P.M.D.’s, “You Gots to Chill.”

Tats on her back, looking all tribal Ghetto Dreams by Common (Ft. Nas)

This again alludes to the chick being the best of both worlds; she has tattoos, but they are on her back, a part of the body that allows her to choose whether she wants them to be visible or not.

Some girls, I be seeing the tattoos, and they look really beautiful on them, because it does feel like an African tribal thing in the way that they have their tattoos in some of the substance, or just the way it looks.
