The term "fade" is from South Central, L.A.
Gang members originally meant murder when they talked about fading someone. If you fade a gang member you are decreasing the number of members in his gang and effectively "fading" his color.
Today the term fade is more flexible by simply meaning "disgrace".
Brotha's got mad caps rainin' down, but those fools can't fade me.
