What does ‘I’m gon’ show your ass today.’ mean?
Sorry to ask about such a rude line.
I met this line in a gang movel, but couldn't understand the meaning well. Does this speaker threaten someone with physical violence? Could you tell me the meaning?
The man who was told this line was frightened and shot the speaker with a gun. So I thought it was very scary words like "I will kill you".
Am I right?
Thank you for your cooperation.
Very Happy

I'm not even sure exactly what it means, but I think you got the meaning right. "gon'" is "going to". I don't speak fluent gang English Wink Maybe someone else will know exactly.

I looked it up in the Urban Dictionary http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=show%20your%20ass

Not sure if it hits the meaning there, but it's a good place to look for those kind of things you don't understand.

Thank you for your answer.
It seems to be a useful dictionary.
Thank you for sharing that with me!
I'll check it out. Very Happy
