Would you say my intelligence now is great relief?
And it's safe to say that our next generation maybe can sleep
With dreams of being a lawyer or doctor
Instead of boy with a chopper that hold the cul-de-sac hostage
Even if Kendrick killed a person when he was young and dumb, would the fact that he is clearly an intelligent person now (his albums prove that he is) make you more optimistic?
Does he represent the generation that breaks the cycle of violence, and proceed to educate the next generation as children that can dream of improving their situation by legal means — becoming a lawyer or doctor — instead of selling drugs? Can the good kid cure the m.A.A.d city?
