And the chapter that read at 25 I would live
Leviticus, Chapter 25.
Kendrick is 25, which may coincidentally refer to Chapter 25 of the Old Testament book, Leviticus, which tells of the Jesuit slaves in Israel and their future redemption.
If thy brother be waxen poor, and hath sold away some of his possession, and if any of his kin come to redeem it, then shall he redeem that which his brother sold.
This verse says if someone needs to give up his spot due to problems with wealth, his relative should come purchase that land, so they may both reside in the Holy Land.
In the same way, Kendrick may be saying that everyone in the HiiiPower and TDE nation, or just Compton residents should watch each others' backs.
