Jakes Slang Meaning

Jakes is slang for cops and its various alternative names(police, pigs, feds, investigators, etc...). It's rumored to have been originated from the TV show "Jake and the Fatman" which ran from the late 1980s and early 1990s. The show had a detective named Jake Styles and that's where it comes from.

This slang is mostly used in rap music, for example in L'A Capone song 'Play for Keeps' he says "Oh yea, we taking sh*t - Steady running from the jakes and sh*t".
