I dont understand why Wayne says

I got my gun in my blue purse
I dont bust back cuz I shoot first
If you are "busting back" you are shooting 2nd. He is "shooting 1st" so he can't be "busting back"

no man..trust me..I have been around some ghetto a*s dudes in my life..From NY to MIA to LA..In the hood in Florida in specific everyone says that s**t in the way I said..And half these dudes sold crack..Never heard it referenced with any relation to a scale..Maybe it orginated from the scale?

"What the lick read," from my knowledge, was just a way of saying, "What's the status."

We all know what the word "lick" means -- an easy opportunity of gain (robberies, burglaries, etc).

This has somehow evolved into everyday slang, since people in the hood are always looking for a "lick." So, it's only right someone awakes everyday and ask, "What the lick read?"

Listen to the snippet of the original version of Pump It Up... if you can find it. I don't think Just Blaze ever released the full version.
