Rap Dictionary

  1. snitchnoun

    A person who tells information on other people about crime related activity. Viewed negatively by criminals and the general hip hop community, it is not the moral flaw that many disillusioned wannabe hustler/rapper/gangsters try to make it out to be. If someone's selling drugs on your street let them be, the police will probably bust them anyway. If someone's representing their gang affiliations obviously on your street let them be, the police will probably bust them anyway. If you know who raped a little girl and you can tell the police without putting yourself or your family in harm's way, do it. If you know whose stray bullet hit someone innocent and you can tell the police without putting yourself or your family in harm's way, do it. If you know who burned down a house with people in it and you can tell the police without putting yourself or your family in harms way, do it. A snitch is a government-made parasite who will give information about other criminals in order to stay out of jail, lighten his sentence or stay on the street. A snitch isn't someone who sees someone getting mugged and calls the police.
