[Verse 3: Kendrick Lamar]
Kendrick Lamar’s verse were shots at a beautiful popular girl who he had a crush on in High school maybe. She didn’t show Kendrick any attention or give him the time of day because he didn’t have enough money or a car like other guys, she wouldn’t settle for someone who didn’t have money to please her. After a while Kendrick realized she was a gold digging ho. She was stuck living in the time and hadn’t planned for the future to find a man who had potential, like Kendrick.
In his last verse “Memories Back Then”, Kendrick says:
Fast forward, wait is that you?
With them big old thighs after school?
And your 3 kids and 3 baby daddies
And car note that’s overdue?
A couple years later, he notices her after school (probably picking up one of her three kids), Kendrick used “big ole' thighs” as an insult in this verse because from having three kids she has gotten fat. She doesn’t have a man anymore so she has no time to work out. Her car note hasn’t been paid. She jumped from man to man, maybe because her previous men fell off and went broke, who would want a girl with three children, also which comes with three different fathers of those children. This girl is nothing but trouble. She’s going through hell. He adds the “I Know” only because he knew she’d end up that, he knows that she is upset and regrets it.
