Nine times outta ten you only ten songs deep before you leap
Into a pool of sharks then swim
That's an analogy on the way I do casualties
And I do this shit casually
Before the verse end, I'll be in the Hall of Fame with my picture framed, friend
Kendrick is stating that almost all the time with a few songs (only 10) he can challenge the giants and so called sharks in the industry. He then proceeds to make a play on casual. When he leaps into the pool of sharks with his ten tracks he leaves casualties and he does it casually i.e. effortlessly. He’s so good at making music that before the first track finishes playing he’ll “..be in the Hall of fame with..” his picture framed. He ends with “friend” to bring his verse full circle i.e. It’s nothing personal, he just loves music.
