Dreams of living life like rappers do
Bump that new E-40 after school
He wants to live the life all kids want, the good life. While us ‘90s kids’ were bumpin' that new “Block Brochure” joint, he was probably bumpin' Grit & Grind (2002) or Breakin News (2003), when Kendrick would have been 15/16 and in high school.
Must have been a special moment to share the B.E.T cypher with E-40 and be featured on his music after bumping him for so many years!
Kendrick was listening to late 90’s E-40. Charlie Hustle: The Blueprint of a Self-Made Millionaire came out in ‘99, he quotes a song from it in the next line.
