English term or phrase:he knows his whole back city's ropes
Esta vez se trata de una traducción que estoy haciendo para mí, nada profesional. Se trata de la canción "Lose yourself" de Eminem. Hay algunas frases que quizás un nativo sabrá aclarar-me.
En este caso sé que "to know ones ropes" es conocer algo, estar al tanto de. ¿Y aquí?
Snap back to reality, Oh there goes gravity
Oh, there goes Rabbit, he choked
He's so mad, but he won't give up that
Is he? No
He won't have it , he knows his whole back city's ropes
It don't matter, he's dope
He knows that, but he's broke
He's so stacked that he knows
When he goes back to his mobile home, that's when it's
Back to the lab again yo
This whole rap shit
He better go capture this moment and hope it don't pass him
