Sublime Linked to Los Angeles Gang Raid

10/23/2009 2:37 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Some of the most violent, drug-dealing gang members have been rounded up in a lightning-fast raid yesterday in an operation named after one of Sublime's most famous songs.



Operation "40 Ounces to Freedom" went down in L.A. in which 47 members of the Rollin' 40s street gang were taken into custody by LAPD officers and FBI agents. The gang reportedly deals crack cocaine in 40-ounce increments ... the band wrote the song about boozin' in 40 ounce increments.

No word on whether officials are considering using the name "Operation Smoke Two Joints" anytime soon.

They'll be back on the streets tonight. Not enough room in the jails.
I can't believe they can round these guys up, but where's Dr. Murray?

You've got your hair permed
You've got your red dress on
Screamin' bout how second gear was such a turn on
And the fog forming on my window tells me that the morning here
And you'll be gone before too long

Who taught you those new tricks?
Damn I shouldn't start that talk,
but life is one big question when your starin at the clock
And the answers always waiting at the liquor store, 40 oz to Freedom,
so I'll take that walk.

And I know that ohhhh...I'm not comin back
Ohh not going back
God knows not going back

You look so fine when you lie it just don't show,
That I know which way the wind blows
40 oz to freedom is the only chance I have to feel good,
even though I feel bad

And I know that ohhhh...I'm not comin back
Ohh not going back
God knows I'm not going back
God knows I'm not going back
