[Verse 3]

from Kendrick Lamar – Collect Calls Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This verse is Dante’s mom speaking, explaining why she hasn’t been taking her son’s collect calls.

Listeners should take notice of the change in vocal presence of Kendrick. Before it was frustration and some bits of anger in the first two verse. It also had a very masculine presence as well. Then there is still frustration but also some inner-conflict to be heard. It also becomes more of a feminine presence.
