This is cul-de-sac and plenty Cognac and major pain
A description of what his story is about:
A cul-de-sac is not a through street, in other words, a dead-end (i.e. hopelessness)
Cognac represents an alcoholic upbringing (see “Swimming Pools”).
Compton, his m.A.A.d city, is this cul-de-sac in life and was filled with struggle and pain.
Also a reference to the Damon Wayns movie “Major Payne” (pain/Payne) that connects to the next line.
Kendrick refers to the cul-de-sac in the second verse of “Average Joe”
It’s worth noting the cul-de-sac is the area near the anus, where remnants of fecal matter remain, leaving the person with a horrid smell if they don’t “clean themselves up” properly. People are real dirty.
Kendrick is saying Compton is a “shit hole” (smells bad) and full of it, like “An opinion is like an asshole, they all stink”, so gangs, police and his neighborhoods don’t care about anything but “bullshit” in general.
