Cop Killa Queenz (Queens)

Queens is one of the five boroughs of New York City; it has the largest area and the second-largest population. The rap nickname of Queens is “Cop Killa Queenz/Queens” (or just “Killa Queenz/Queens”), reflecting the high crime areas of Queens where many rappers live.
“Cop Killa Queenz” has been cited in print since at least 1998. “Killa Queens” has been printed on hats and shirts.
Wikipedia: Queens
Queens is the easternmost and largest in area of the five boroughs of New York City, geographically adjacent to the borough of Brooklyn at the western end of Long Island. Coterminous with Queens County since 1899, the borough of Queens is the second-largest in population (behind Brooklyn), with a Census-estimated 2,321,580 residents in 2014, approximately 48% of them foreign-born. Queens County is also the second most populous county in New York State, behind neighboring Kings County, which is coterminous with the borough of Brooklyn. Queens is the fourth-most densely populated county among New York City’s boroughs, as well as in the United States; and if each New York City borough were an independent city, Queens would also be the nation’s fourth most populous city, after Los Angeles, Chicago, and Brooklyn. Queens is the most ethnically diverse urban area in the world.
