That's what she said but in my head I wanted to be like Jordan
Award touring the country with money from mic recording

from Kendrick Lamar – Black Boy Fly Lyrics on Rap Genius


He was raised to be proud of himself and hold his head high, but that’s easier said than done. Its impossible not to want to be successful like his peers. He’s only human. Additionally, “Mic” is pronounced the same as “Mike”, as in Michael Jordan.

Kendrick lacked drive and only imagined having the success he wanted. Jordan played across states and received numerous awards and championships, Kendrick envisioned and dreamnt of having that type of success and money from rap.
