I was born and raise in…
I was born and raise in Brooklyn, in the Fort Greene Projects 1953, we called it “Hot Peas and Butter. Same rules except when the person who hid
the belt called everybody to find the belt they would yell. “Hot peas and butter, come and get your super,your mother is in the gutter eating peanut butter”. Everyone would come running towards the area the belt was hidden. and as we looked for it the person who hid the belt would say your cold, (meaning your not near the belt)or
you would say real real cold, but the minute the guy said your hot or real hot, the guys would go crazy looking for the belt, then you started o p paying attention because you knew somebody was going to find the belt soon and start whipping somebody or hey maybe you. it was a lil dangerous because there were some older guys in our crowd, although they would never hit us hard with the belt we saw what they did to the older ones. and we weren’t taking any chances. It was boss.
