Never be Snoop nor Dre
Both Snoop and Dre are considered to be kings of the genre. Since Kendrick is a west coast rapper like them, he must have heard plenty of doubters tell him he wouldn’t measure up. This has come full circle, since Snoop himself passed the torch to Kendrick, and Kendrick traded bars with Dre on his last album. The funny part of all this is that the legends that Kendrick was never supposed to even be able to touch are now some of his main supporters and collaborators. This line also reinforces a sense of respect for East and West coast styles, listing two East coast legends and two West coasters.
