Then I died
Although Drake tried to warn him that by choosing this life, he’s essentially giving his life away and despite all that Kendrick still decides that he wants to do it.
Kendrick Lamar was quoted on these last lines in a XXL Magazine interview
At the end of that verse, that’s him, in the conversation, him telling me that you have to accept this lifestyle, because all of that will come, and it’s up to you how far you’re gonna go with it, or how much you’re gonna let in. Me acknowledging that, when I say, ‘Then I died,’ it leaves it hanging on the audience trying to figure out where would I go with it? Will I let it taint me or destroy me? Or will I know how to deal with it?
