Reeking the scent of a saint, sinners smell it then start squeezing
Kendrick was a good kid (Saint) and the haters or gang members (Sinners) didn’t like that and tried to shoot him. Alternatively, the Catholic Church preaches that saints have a certain odor which they call the odour of sanctity, a scent often compared to the smell of flowers. Kendrick smells of this and his opponents are compelled to have Kendrick push up daisies so to speak.
Notice the usage of alliteration with saint, sinners, smell, start and squeezing.
