He got a cousin named David and I seen him last week
There is some significance with the name David. It could possibly refer to Dave, Kendrick’s friend who was killed in front of his own eyes and is sung about in the first verse from Dave’s brothers perspective. All of the characters on the album are related in some way, so it is possible that this could be the David that Kiesha’s sister is talking about.
This also could be Kendrick’s way of showing how interconnected the lives of these victims are.
