Mass hallucination baby
Mass hallucinations are collective societal delusions related to some threat. As a sort of anti-individualism, we follow what the gang or government says because of fear.
The way in which we live and the way that this can be transformed is simply a projection of our thoughts and emotions (in this case fear) — it’s an hallucination.
There are 3 hallucinations he depicts across each verse, those related to: gang affiliation/violence, police brutality, and drugs.
