Hip Hop Slang Words For The Police

Disclaimer:

I am not saying that Hip Hop invented all of these words.

Hip Hop pulls words from popular culture, religions, broken English, and other languages.

Hip Hoppers have a uniquely - all encompassing way of curating language and this list reflects that.
