I should ask a choir what do you require
To sing a song that acquire me to have faith
As the record spin I should pray
Kendrick, amidst all the sinful actions in his environment, is feeling his least religious; it’s difficult to have faith in such hopeless conditions.
And so since choirs and churches are non-influential in his everyday decisions, he resorts to putting on a hip-hop record. His lifestyle is in accordance to what the hip-hop songs are saying, so in essence, hip-hop is his religion.
A slight nod to “Can’t knock the hustle”
