Panic dreams, so it seems we're meant to die
Panic dreams are dreams where, before a near-death experience, you wake up. Like falling, but before you hit the ground you awaken. Gambino is referring to his dreams of being successful. If he didn’t achieve them he probably would have died, being influenced by the negativity going on around him.
