15 I was pushing carts at K-Mart
By 21 they said I’d be inside a graveyard
The numbers Cyhi refers to are ages — at age 15 he worked for K-Mart, and, as is stereo-typically said of many living in poor, crime ridden areas, was expected to be dead.
Note that when he says “at K-Mart” it sounds like “AK-Mart” -an AK, automatic Kalashnikov, is an assault rifle, tying it with the previous line.
This is also a continuation of the last line, as an AR-15 is a very popular assault rifle.
“By 21 they said I’d be inside a graveyard” might also reference Pusha T’s line from So Appalled “CNN said I’d be dead by 21”, which CyHi was also featured on
