Your rebuttal a little too late
And if you have a album date, just make sure I'm not in the song
Cause I don't need the attention bring enough of that on my own
His rebuttal (the 3rd verse) to this message literally comes too late as she has already faded away by the time he can explain himself. When she says she gets enough attention on her own, she’s saying it to brag (not to plead with Kendrick to not mention her in his album) about how well she’s doing for herself as a hooker — which ties in with the defiant, “don’t feel sorry for me” tone of the previous lines & with the next line talking about how she feels great.
