I wasn't jealous cuz of the talents they got
I was terrified they'll be the last black boys to fly...
Out of Compton

from Kendrick Lamar – Black Boy Fly Lyrics on Rap Genius


Kendrick summates the entire song explaining that the “jealousy” he felt didn’t come from a place of hate but instead, from fear that they would be the last people to make it out of Compton.
