Dave, you good?
Dave? Dave, say something - Dave?
These bitch ass niggas killed my brother!

from Kendrick Lamar – Swimming Pools (Drank) Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Dave’s brother doesn’t hear Dave respond so he runs over to Kendrick holding Dave and begins to shake him (as you can hear by the ruffling sounds) and it is then that he finds out that Dave has been killed.

This signifies a turning point in the album. Before K. Dot was causing mischief, stealing cars, trying to get it in with Sherane, and drinking excessively. This has all led to Dave getting killed. K. Dot now has a realization of what is going on with his life. .
