You slipped up a few times, I gave you a pass
K-Dot has had a few near death experiences in his life and he’ll probably have more. According to death it was all choice, as he could have let Kendrick die on any of those occasions. This demonstrates the respect from Kdot given to death and who he spares, one of the few lines in the song where he thanks death for not killing him.
