What a feeling of overcoming the odds
It's like I just hit the lottery, my God
There must be a God,
Kendrick means you’ve overcome the odds of not ending up dead/in jail by the age of 25 as a black male or by not ending up in a stereotypical lifestyle as a black person in general.
As not many people are able to break the stereotype or overcome the odds, it’s like winning the lottery if you do so and hence in a way prayers have been answered/a miracle has occurred or there clearly is a God.
