I ain't no dope dealer, somebody tell me wtf that mean plz

Everybody I ask don't know either lol
"What the lick read" is down south slang for "what's it lookin' like" "whats the plan" or "whats good"

It originates from when someone would "catch a lick" or in other words a "come up" as explained in the post before mine. You would ask the person whos doing/did the lick, "what the lick read?" meaning, "how much/what did you get?" or "how much was/is that lick is worth?"

Eventually it just became a slang phrase for "what's going on?"

Kite = Written letters to or from prison
Tier = The physical levels of prison cell blocks. Often like offenders are put on the same tiers giving the tier a reputation
Gen. Pop = Where most prisoners go when incarcerated as opposed to Segregation for higher profile inmates, inmates who need protection or SHU which is solitary confinement mostly as a disciplinary action
Opp = Cheesy Chiraq slang for opponent or someone who is down wit a rival crew/gang etc

If you are hearing in newer songs (particularly from Chicago artists/ "drill" music), it's short for "opposition" and refers to some that you don't know/ don't #### with/ someone from a rival gang. It's often used in a way that means if you see an 'opp', violence will proceed
