But you ain't no kin to me, probably Kendrick I'm Kennedy
Assassinate my character, shoot as your remedy

from Kendrick Lamar – BET BackRoom Freestyle Lyrics on Rap Genius


Kendrick states he wants nothing to do with his cousin’s cousin, as he’s affiliated with the Bloods gang.

The famous US president John F. Kennedy was assassinated, and Kendrick uses this line to portray his cousin’s cousin as someone who’s jealous of his success and will try to “assassinate” his character.

When he says “shoot as your remedy” he’s talking of most gang members (but more specifically his cousin’s cousin), who shoot anyone that poses any sort of threat to them, as if it’s some sort of remedy to the struggle they are in.
