Pacing back and forth, racing my thoughts on embracing Daytons
This line depicts an anxious or even nervous Kendrick Lamar pacing back and forth in deep thought, constructing this verse line by line, word by word.
This is really the only moment in this entire verse where Kendrick shows any vulnerability and gives you a peak into his psyche. Amongst this verse which is so well crafted and so precisely hits his antagonists with scathing lyrics, this line still shows the human inside the lyrical beast that is….King Kendrick Lamar
Kendrick must be a fan of Dayton Wire Wheels (“D’s”), which started in Dayton, Ohio, but are popular on the west coast especially with low riders. Kendrick’s thoughts are coming out so fast as he anxiously writes this verse that they’re doing laps around each other as if they’re actually racing.
