But I can never right my wrongs unless I write them down for real
Identical with the end of the first verse.
Again, this is a play on words using “right”… very similar to what Kanye West used in the end of his second verse in “Touch the Sky”:
Not to mention the transition to the hook by extending use of the term “P.S.” at the end.
This reiteration of the last line in the first verse is to re-emphasize the theme of poetic justice — making things right with finely crafted compositions.
Lamar’s verse was all about the responsibility he feels as an artist to utilize his negative personal experiences to help other people overcome the same problems and about how he believes the role of rap/words/art is powerful enough to fix a nation.
Drake brings it down to another, personal level — he only cares about winning back his girl and hopes that writing a bunch of songs about her will fix all the mistakes he made in their relationship and get her to see that they should get back together
