Well, I'm a*suming this is drug related. I'm not an expert on cocaine, but these rappers refer to a brick of cocaine as a "bird."

I don't know why it's called a bird, maybe someone can explain that to me. Maybe it's because of the way they were brought into the country.

I'm guessing Gucci is only buying a fraction of the whole brick?
We call em birds cause we get em in and get them gone...we movin em they fly away

I've never understood 7:30 like I know what it means but what's it's origin?
From what I remember, 7:30 originated from NYC psych wards.

s**t clears up alot of confusion and prevents alot of s**t from happening across the world

Killa Cam for president
k*ll Cam didn't coin "No Homo", bruh -- although he arguably popularized it.

yea speakin of E-40 he's been using the term Broccoli = Weed for years

but i heard that Pac Div song Broccoli & they use it as a term for $$$
Broccoli = Green. Green = Money or Weed. Either definition works, depends where you're from I guess.

ROzay is the better rapper bruh


real talk

no trolling or nun

just real talk
real talk from whos mouth? ross cant f**k with the lyricist pimp was, hell never be the producer or musician that pimp was, hell never spit the realness pimp did and hell never get the widespread respect that pimp had. ross doesnt hold a flame to pimps legend, dont kid yourself. your opinion is your opinion and its cool to have it, but dont blur it with fact.

tre pound = meaning 3 #...any 30 caliber gun... 38 special...357...so on n so on...now the 4 pound or 4 # is any 40 caliber gun... 40...44 n so on...


# is the pound sign...so basically they just putting 4# as they were carrying some sort of 40 caliber piece...
pound (#) means 5 so a 4# means a 45... and a trey(3) # is short for trey # seven (357)

Yeah,I always hear east coast rappers talk about smoking "L's" and "loosies" I just figured it was slang for a blunt or a dutch
Nah, loosies are .50-$1 single cigarettes you buy at the bodega when you can't afford a whole pack.

Loosies also refers to when you buy individual cigarettes in a bodega or corner store. You sometimes hear them referred to as "corner loosies".
