Turn a shotty to a verb if you let me
verbs are action words. Turn it into an action. Shoot someone.
Kendrick starts by referencing his line on Control after the name drops:
This line might not be taken as much of a diss, but very well could be a reference to a tweet Mac Miller posted in response to being namedropped on “Control”:
“turn a shotty(shotgun) to a verb…” That’s why his next line is you know im a killer. Metaphorically relating his verbs to a shotgun.
