Gang signs out the window, ya bish
Hoping all of em offend you, ya bish
Gang signs are meant to intimidate and offend the people that are viewing them pass by. There’s a nonchalance within the line that is the sentiment of the youth. It’s the uncaring arrogance we all displayed, that “IDGAF” attitude. Those are exactly the sentiments within Kendrick as he rolls around with his homies. There’s some irony portrayed because the song before is The Art of Peer Pressure. He wasn’t a gang banger but he still threw up gang signs because it was what the homies were doing.
These bars and one before, are all related. It’s the mentality of how Kendrick deals with troubled days when he can’t ease the pain of his past. In one way or another, he lashes out and acts recklessly (in actions or money).
