Live in the basement, church pews and funeral faces

from Big Sean (Ft. Jay Electronica & Kendrick Lamar) – Control Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

“Basement” (and variations thereof) are traditional hip hop terms for the underground music scene.

Thus Kendrick is still very much connected to the underground — and still killing the competition (hence the need for a funeral, somber competitors, etc.)
