What Does 213 Mean In Rap? (EXPLAINED)

You might have heard of 213, a hip-hop supergroup that was formed by Snoop Dogg and his crew. But do you know where it came from? I’m sure you didn’t unless you are familiar with the rap scene in LA.

213 comes from LA’s original telephone area code. When you use it, you refer to LA itself. However, the actual telephone area code of LA has since changed to  562. One can hear or say 216 like this.

“Hey! I brought gifts from 213 that you might like.”

Or

“213 is a very long drive so you better stock up on gas and food.”
