I'm important like the Pope,
The Pope is the Bishop of Rome and the leader of the worldwide Catholic Church. Like the pope, Kendrick is an important leader of the rap game.
I’m important like the Pope, I’m the king of New York
I’m live from South Central, I’m a Muslim on pork
The way Kendrick pronounces important makes it also sounds like “impotent”, and as the Pope is not allowed to have sex, Kendrick’s wordplay creates two meanings.
