I’m usually a true firm believer of bad karma
Consequences from evil will make your past haunt you
“Do good and let good things happen. Do bad and prepare for the worst.” Normally this type of quote would be on Kendrick’s mind when he was making a decision, but when he’s with his boys he doesn’t think for himself.
This philosophy ends up having a bigger effect than young Kendrick could predict. Throughout the album bad karma works it’s magic with Kendrick until he decides to change his life and do good, thus giving him good karma at the end.
Like Pac said:
I believe that everything that you do bad comes back to you. So everything that I do that’s bad, I’m going to suffer from it. But in my mind, I believe what I’m doing is right. So I feel like I’m going to heaven.
