Here, Wayne is saying that police spend the majority of their time looking for drugs in the hood, and not the suburbs. What he means by “and you know the other thing is mostly found…”, is that mostly black people live in the hood. Relating this back to the statistic about college vs. imprisonment, Wayne is saying that not so many black people would be locked up, if the police didn’t spend all their time in the suburb. Interesting way of looking at things, Weezy, but I gotta agree

should read “then feed her to my brothers”
This line should read “Hard body, like Rihanna dad, I get my flex on”
He is clearly referring to Nas. Other than the fact that Game’s flow sounds nothing like Jadakiss, or that Jada’s voice is far from raspy, on the album (LAX) this song is on, Nas is featured on a skit called “Hard Liquor” (“liquor in my system”), so all fingers point to a subliminal Nas shoutout.
should be “before he dropped ‘Many Men’ ”
Game is saying that he was way gangster before 50 Cent dropped his street classic “Many Men.” Based on this video, I would have to argue that point:
