Or hating the fact none of that shit make me real?
Kendrick is coming to the realization that none of his loves are “real” — they don’t define him nor do they represent what he really wants in life, mainly because of the things you’ll do to get them. For him to love himself, he has to find his true desires, not follow the typical Compton life. You still wouldn’t become real if you don’t love your real self.
