Hope we get rich, hope we can tower
Over the city with vanity with the music louder
Kendrick always had dreams of being successful and hopes to stand tall with pride showing that he made it.
Most kids in the hood dream of becoming rich. The problem with money and power in the hood, is that it’s wasted on fly cars, jewelry and flashy stuff. Turn up the music in the car and blast your vanity over the city you’ve conquered with money and power. Perhaps he is suggesting that there is a more productive use of resources.
