I captured the likes of NASA
My pedigree to fly past ya, I pass the weed to the pastor

from Kendrick Lamar – Rigamortus Lyrics on Rap Genius


NASA of course is the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and deal with astronomy. This is another references to him being out of this world with his skill and mission; so out of this world is Lamar that he’s not up in the sky with planes, but in space. The theme continues in the verse.

Notice that it also sounds like “Nasir”, the full name of the legend himself Nas. Nas described Lamar as “the future” in an interview with RapGenius.
