    Default six deep

    Dear all,

    What is the meaning of "six deep" in:

    Detective: So you find a dead girl in your club. You toss her body in a dumpster 'stead of calling the cops?

    Man: I ran with the 26 Street Villains {HE SHOWS HIM A 26ER GANG TATTED ON HIS NECK}. If they'd've caught me talkin' to some cops, I woulda been six deep.

    Thanks a lot

    My guess is that he means "They would've killed me and buried me"!
    I'm not very sure, though.

    Thanks.

    Yes. "6 feet under" is the usual expression. It means dead and buried.

    Not a teacher:

    It means "six feet under", in other words: dead and buried.
