I had a fifth in the trunk like Curtis Jackson for ransom
Kendrick plays with words on this one:
He pronounces ‘fifth’ more like “fif”, which is a nickname of rapper Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson.
He’s actually got a fifth of alcohol, probably Grey Goose vodka, in his trunk.
But if he actually had ‘“fif” in his trunk’, he would have 50 Cent taped up and ready for ransom
Actually, having a rapper “in the trunk” usually refers to playing that rapper’s music loud in your car.
Recall the famous line from A Tribe Called Quest:
Kendrick is bumping 50 while he’s driving
