Am I really scared of passing away?
Recalls Tupac’s sentiment from “Changes” Kendrick is just in deep thought about death because he’s sees it around him daily.
“A coward dies a thousand deaths; a soldier dies but once."
-Tupac Amaru Shakur
Interesting Fact: 2Pac actually paraphrased this from the Shakespeare play, Julius Caesar. Caesar says,
“Cowards die many times before their deaths;
The valiant never taste of death but once”
