Plata o plomo is a Colombian Spanish slang phrase that translates to “silver or lead.” A person saying the phrase is telling the listener to either accept a bribe (plata, meaning “silver,” a common slang term for money in Colombia) or lose their life (plomo, a metonym for “lead bullet”).
Oye! Plata o plomo pandejo.

"Listen here sucker, play along or its lights out".

Silver or lead: money or a bullet.
