And they waiting on Kendrick like the first and the fifteenth

from Kendrick Lamar – Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

People that rely on government assistance usually get it on the first and the fifteenth of every month.

The world is waiting on Kendrick like they wait for their paychecks, which is what they need to survive, tying in with the previous line:

Don’t you see that long line

In addition, 2Pac had a very similar line to this on “All Eyez on Me”:

Say money bring bitches, bitches bring lies
One nigga’s gettin' jealous, and motherfuckers died
Depend on me like the first and fifteenth

1st and 15th is also Lupe Fiasco’s record label; so this could be interpreted as “waiting on Kendrick to be the next socially aware rapper” (we’re fine with the Lupe Fiasco we have). However, Kendrick previously said on Ab-Souls Outro that he didn’t want this label.
