In Nouchi (Ivorian slang), coupé means "to cheat" and décalé means to "run away", so coupé-décalé basically means to cheat somebody and run away. The 'somebody' cheated is generally interpreted to mean France or the West/Europe. In the context of this piece - CUT AND MOVE  or CUT AND SHIFT OFF.   בעברית - הכה וברח
