the G code is a set very basic rules that if you follow very carefully, you will have the upper hand on anyone who means to do you harm. it is not so much a secret, as a humble understanding of the ways of the world. to boast and to flaunt are direct violations of it, so those who frequently speak in public about the G code do not fully grasp the concept. the G code is a way of life, a survival technique that has endured conflicts since the arrival of the first slave of the eastern seaboard.
a lot of rappers call themselves talking about the G code, but they don't really know!

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.

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 โ€œStop Snitchinโ€™โ€ 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 "
