[Skit]

from Kendrick Lamar – Sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

(On the phone:)

Nigga, the homie’s brother— nigga, right here, he gone my nigga, he gone!
Nigga— they just killed the homie’s brother, my nigga. We right here on the block, my nigga.
Al- alright, nigga— nigga just come— alright, alright, just call me back, man, just call me back.
(Hangs up)
Arghh… fuck!
…So what we gon' do, my niggas? What we gon' do?
Bro, we can go back right now, my nigga. Like… nigga, I don’t give a FUCK, my nigga. We can go back right now.

Fuck! I’m tired of this shit! I’m tired of fuckin' runnin', I’m tired of this shit! My brother, homie!


K.Dot’s homies talking after Dave has been killed. Some of them want to go back and get revenge. Dave’s brother finally snaps and says he is tired of this shit

This is an extremely emotional skit. One can hear the desperation in K.Dot’s friend voice. They killed his brother; an unbearable loss.

Kendrick’s friends want revenge. Their desire for vengeance continues them down a path in which they will eventually die of “thirst.”

Dave’s brother and the “tired of this shit” phrase also resembles Tre crying to his girl in Boyz n the Hood:
