They call me said I gotta crawl before I walk
And if I ran my mouth then my legs would get cut off

from Kendrick Lamar – Bring The Pain Freestyle Lyrics on Rap Genius


The old saying, “crawl before you walk”, is meant to be used as an analogy to say that you should take life little by little and not try to do more than what you can handle, and they are saying if Kendrick tries to do this, he will surely run into trifles (getting his “legs” cut off).
