Here's my thought. Gambino= Gangsters
Gambino Playstation = Gun(s)
Playpen=Crib,House,whatever
Keep the Gambino Playstation in the Playpen= Keep your Gun at Home

Maybe I'm fucked in the nugget though.

Haha to me he is actually referring to the Sony Playstation, which was blowing up at that time. I believe I got one that first christmas that Forever came out. Now, Gambino just makes it sound cool. It could be some metaphorical shit I don't know.

For a gambino, a playstation (object of action) is a gun, that's where it comes from. I always thought he meant gun too, like a "Gambinos playstation is gun" type of thought process.

Why would he mention Sony Playstation?

is "gambino playstation" really slang for a rifle. is this from the godfather or scarface or something?

here's a wild thought... Ghostface doesn't care what he says as long as it rhymes... He thought hmm playstation ... playpen... they rhyme. I really don't think Ghostface puts more than 5 minutes into his rhymes. Please stop analyzing Ghost's lyrics, they don't make sense cause he doesnt care if they do.

pffffftahahahaha this is the first thread i have read in 'lyrical interpretation' im with bedlam on this one, listen to the start of nutmeg, he said it in a interview once that the song doesnt make sence - its just ghost jiberish. and read the manual rza talks about ghost writing his first rhyme for 36 in like 15 minutes. he's mad on another level. ghost is a lyrical genius, "gambino playstation" = "gun" i very much doubt it, good read tho hahah
