The G Code stands for Ghetto Code
. It is generally used to describe the old gangsters
, the street veterans, who are from the ghetto
or the hood
as some like to call it. To be born in the G Code is something to be proud of, it means you are a hard-ass gangster and no one can fuck with you.
We don't talk to police, we don't make a peace bond, we don't trust in the judicial system, we shoot guns. We rely on the streets, we do battle in the hood, I was born in the G Code, embedded in my blood.
Set of rules to live by; a code of conduct for surviving on the streets.
I live by the g-code, I die by the g-code
don't rat, don't snitch, don't bend, don't fold--B.G. "Heart of da Streetz"
The G code is a term which refers to a system of not snitching. The phrase started by propaganda used in Baltimore, MD to stop members of inner-city communities from snitching on each other. This is where the phrase “Stop Snitchin’” was formed. This is the bases for the G-Code.
G Code by Geto Boys is a good example.
a better example from the song is:
"See I be on some street shit, don't talk to police
I won't accept a visit from agents who wanna see
if I got shit to say about a nigga case
I'm a motherfuckin' nigga through and through, I ain't gay ......
...When the government is workin', real niggas never squeal "
To not snitch or talk to the police about a criminal matter, aka keeping your mouth shut.
-Frank Gussenberg, 1920s gangster shot 20 times during the St. valentine's Day Massacre, whose last words to the police when asked if he knew who shot him: ""I'm not gonna talk - nobody shot me."
-Rapper Project Pat.
-Geto Boys' song "G code"
Gangster code. Don't snitch. and if someone snitches on you slit that motherfuckers throat.
when that kid snitched on me i stayed true to the G Code and killed that motherfucker.
Stayin true to tha streets. A way of life. Street culture.
I was born in tha g-code imbeded in my blood.
-Tha G-Code - Scarface
The G- code is the street code for keeping your mouth shut. Not snitching. If you get 25 to life, and are able to get that reduced if you tell on your homies, thats breakin the G- code.
