Walk inside the label, struck a match, and then I blew, bomb
Kendrick is using blew in two meanings
- Blew, as in blew the match that Kendrick lit up
- Blew up as in making it big, noted in this article which states Kendrick sold 250k in first week sales for Good Kid, M.A.A.D City
He’s also alluding to the fact that he blew up the labels expectations. He blew up the label — he blew up the way that labels have been making hip-hop for a while.
