I was laying in bed last night thinking and this thought just popped in my head
And I thought, wouldn't shit just be a lot easier if you dropped dead
I would feel so much better
By guided imagery Em implies how from time to time, when he’s by himself, he just occasionally thinks about how much his life would be easier if his girlfriend (possibly Kim) just suddenly died out of no where.
If this is continuing the metaphors (the women being the rap game), he could be saying that he would feel a lot better if he were to stop making music and retire, a common struggle on this album and most of his previous ones.
But as he said in an interview (see below), he said that he’ll retire when rapping won’t be fun anymore for him.
