I take a sip of Hennessy and then get pissy drunk
I ain't a drinker, I'm a thinker, call it what you want
Kendrick’s not drinking just for the sake of it, he’s drinking to get into a state to think. An obvious contrast to the concept of faith and holiness, or at least that’s what I call it.
Another interpretation being: Kendrick is purposely drinking Hennessy enough to get pissy drunk which he uses to relieve the stress or to help cope with all of the painful thoughts. In contrast to getting drunk enough to forget about it.
