But I could never right my wrongs
'less I write it down for real, P.S
The usage of this post script (P.S.) is to segue into the chorus by extending the play on the words write/right.
This is a play on words using the “right/write” homophones… very similar to what Kanye West used in the end of the second verse in “Touch the Sky”:
This shows the irony of being unable to right his wrongdoings and negative experiences of his youth unless he “writes them down for real”. Everything he spits is real or has happened and the only way to right his wrongs is by writing them.
It could be a play on the line before. About him communicating with us through his lyrics and hip-hop venting his story, sharing it with other people so we can all learn from his wrongs which are the direct outcome from his environment and elders and he is not alone in this. It’s up to our generation to save this nation through communicating, uniting, organizing and right wrongs.
