well if you use it that way it still makes zero sense..I think rappers are also confused by the term..I know for sure that tre pound and four pound was specifically used bcuz of the weight of the gun..Rappers made different adaptations to it im a.ssuming..

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"

"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?"
