    I'm da gangsta in da hood.

    Hello.

    What does it mean?

    I'm da gangsta in da hood, yo. Bustin' shiznitz an' layin' da cuts straight sittin' on yo ass wiv me Colt 40 and homies, cuttin' back a fat split in me crib, yo. (Urban Dictionary: gangster)

    Thanks.

    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Nobody outside of that subset of the culture really cares.

    I'm embarrassed to say that with the help of my flatmate, we have translated most of it:

    "I'm the gangster in this neighbourhood. I am ????????????, sitting on your butt with my Colt 40 (gun) and my friends, smoking a large joint in my house. Oh yeah!"

    We have no idea what "bustin' shiznitz an' layin' da cuts straight" means. "Shiznitz" is supposed to be the "coolest thing you can possibly think of" but it doesn't make any sense after "bustin'"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: I'm da gangsta in da hood.

    It seems completely meaningless.

    Thanks anyway.

    You both seemed normal when I met you.

    Layin' da cuts- this could mean playing music, like a DJ to an audience.

    It's just meant to imitate the talk, so I wouldn't bust my shiznitz to get the exact meaning.

    Re: I'm da gangsta in da hood.

    "Colt 40" might be the 40 ounce size of Colt 45 malt liquor.

    I'll take your AmE word for that. I've never heard of the brand and we don't measure our drinks in ounces here. Mind you, I've never heard of a Colt 40 gun either - I just assumed if a Colt 45 was a gun, then probably a 40 was too.
