But they made a right, they made a left then made a right
Then another right
One lucky night with the homies
You hear police sirens before this part insinuating that the police are close and about to catch them. However, they made some clutch turns and got away.
It could also refer to the proverb that two wrongs (robbery and assault) don’t make a right, because he talks about the idea of karma and how things come back to haunt you throughout the song…
(Notice Kendrick and his homeboys' last turn was a left in the “circling life” part. The police’s last turn was a right.)
