I just found this :

1.) trey:
A boy's nickname that stands for "the third." Another form is Tripp.

"Trey's full name is John Doe III."

2.)Trey:
a three pointer

"Reggie Miller hits trey's like there's no tomorrow."

Just for any1 who did not grow up in ghettos or lives in the usa , this will help u a lot . --> http://www.urbandictionary.com
I found a lot terms and words there ( except "suede" I once started a thread and never got an answer)

But I hope I could help just a little bit
PEACE

by the way I forgot

18 J: or J 18 ( I found this in the urbandictionary):

Abbreviation for the June 18th 1999 Carnival Against Capitalism, an event held simultaneously in over 80 countries.

London J18: protesters converged on the City of London and shut it down. McDonald's and some other places got a makeover Bakunin style, and other companies were forced to shut down. The cops turned up and started attacking people but were driven back repeatedly. The most successful anti-capitalist protest in Britain to date.

Nigeria J18 - probably the only one bigger than Britain. Workers invaded and tore down the offices of Shell in Nigeria, because shell are trashing the Niger Delta.

Eugene J18 - the biggest and most militant of the US events, featuring a street party which cops attacked, leading to some of the fiercest clashes anywhere. Persecution is also worst in America. One protester was victimised under the Three Strikes law and is still in jail.

Cologne J18 - pre-Seattle, and really the first of the big anti-summit protests - and the reason for all the rest. Protesters besieged the summit in Cologne and tried to get past security cordons.

Pakistan J18 - anti-nuke protesters got into a nuclear base and got arrested and told they would be charged with treason (but they weren't).

Not to be confused with C18 - although sections of the British press somehow managed this.

This was the first of a number of acronyms used for anti-capitalist protests, e.g. N20, S11, etc.

let em do trey-
he does not say that, he says let him do trade, I think he is referring to one the lesson the Gods study. The lesson is basically about the Original man allowing the grafted devil of the planet earth to come amongst us to do trade only after he has went through years of studying to be like the orignal man

He's saying "Let em do trade, palms stayed 18 Jade"

let them do trade- let them fight (as in trade blows)

18 jade palms- a kung fu style (as in when they traded blows, he used this kung fu)

No doubt, alot of times, the meanings behind the lyrics are misinterpreted because the lyrics themselves are misinterpreted. Glad to help.
