    'Cause that's how the Jones boyz roll'

    Hello,

    can someone please explain the meaning of 'Cause that's how the Jones boyz roll'?

    This is from the news item revealing the identiy of two young people during the Vancouver riots. On top of the Facebook screenshot, it says "Note the funny response from Scott's brother, Ryan."

    I know sometimes a joke is not funny if it has to be explained, but please explain anyway. Is it because it looks like he is rolling with the girl?

    Thank you.

    It's not really a joke, despite the sexual connotations of "roll" and the photo of the couple getting all romantic on a public street.

    The speaker is using urban street slang (as evidenced by the use of "boyz" instead of "boys") to say "This is how the men in my family do things" or "This is how the males in the Jones family act."
