Fuck tha police
Coming straight from the underground
Young nigga got it bad cuz I'm brown
And not the other color so police think
They have the authority to kill a minority


Fuck tha police I disrespect/hate the police
the underground the underground music scene (Rap was not as mainstream when this song was released)
nigga back man (offensive) cuz because

Fuck that shit, cuz I ain't tha one
For a punk motherfucker with a badge and a gun
To be beating on, and throwing in jail
We could go toe to toe in the middle of a cell

Fucking with me cuz I'm a teenager
With a little bit of gold and a pager
Searching my car, looking for the product
Thinking every nigga is selling narcotics


Fuck that shit Forget about that I ain't tha one I'm not the one
punk motherfucker worthless offensive man

go toe to toe fight

pager When this song was released in the late 80s, American teenagers with pagers were often assumed to be using them to set up drug deals, so they were forbidden in many high schools.
the product drugs

You'd rather see me in the pen
Then me and Lorenzo rolling in the Benzo
Beat the police outta shape
And when I'm finished, bring the yellow tape
To tape off the scene of the slaughter
Still can't swallow bread and water


the pen prison
rolling in the Benzo riding in the Mercedes
outta out of
yellow tape police tape used to block off crime scenes

bread and water stereotypical prison food

I don't know if they fags or what
Search a nigga down and grabbing his nuts
And on the other hand, without a gun they can't get none
But don't let it be a black and a white one
Cuz they slam ya down to the street top
Black police showing out for the white cop

Ice Cube will swarm
any motherfucker in a blue uniform
Just cuz I'm from the CPT, punk police are afraid of me
A young nigga on a warpath
And when I'm finished, it's gonna be a bloodbath
Of cops, dying in LA
Yo Dre, I got something to say

Fuck the police
Fuck the police
Fuck the police
Fuck the police


they fags they are gay men
nuts testicles
can't get none can't get any sex

slam ya down throw you down hard
showing out showing off, trying to impress

swarm on attack
muthafucka offensive man
CPT Compton (town by Los Angeles associated with gang violence)
on a warpath at war

cops police officers
Yo pay attention
