Looking in the mirror I'm embarrassed
I’m feeling like a suicidal terrorist
React like an infant whenever you are mentioned
Kendrick feels like a hypocrite for how he used to act like a child when mainstream artists such as Drake were mentioned. Either disrespecting or discrediting them due to jealousy.
Now he feels like a suicidal terrorist because he’s killing the person he used to be for hopes of a better life. (Similar to the afterlife that terrorists are often promised for the sacrifice)
He is embarrassed because when he looks in the mirror he realizes he is becoming a mainstream rapper and is on the verge of blowing up.
