Eminem, Pac and where God stay

from Black Hippy (Ft. Ab-Soul, Jay Rock, Kendrick Lamar & ScHoolboy Q) – U.O.E.N.O. Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Eminem and 2Pac are amongst Kendrick’s favorite lyricists. With over 100 million records sold combined, the world seems to think they are the best as well.

These artists along with God have influenced Kendrick to be more than an average rapper — he stays at the top. Continuing from the line before: he’s actually got a problem a lot of rappers want to have if this is where he’s stuck.

Eminem, Pac and God are “stuck in a rock in hard place”, as well as Kendrick, because of the fact so many people look up and rely on their positive energy. The pressure they have to be a positive influence on the people to do whats right could be understandably overwhelming at times.

This line is fleshing out the cliche from the last line: Eminem and Tupac represent the rock and God is the hard place. Kendrick feels like he is stuck between the rap game and life as a man of God. Rap tends to glorify ungodly pursuits (pussy, money, weed, etc.), but these are taking him away from God.
