By any means, wasn't trying to offend or come between

He wasn’t trying to offend Keisha or her family, he knew it had to be told, to convey his message to the listeners of his music.
He is stating hypothetically what would happen if he doesn’t tell the story. 20 generations down the line, long after Keisha, Keisha’s sister and even Kendrick’s respective souls are gone from the world of the living. Future generations would be forced to repeat history because it was never revealed and they wouldn’t know better. So, Kendrick believes that if he tells the story, at least they can learn from the mistakes that she made.
