I told him I would go back, knowing I wouldn't go back
Working a 9 to 5 is something I couldn't stomach
Surrounded by the violence
All the goons and the goblins

from Kendrick Lamar – Outrageous Lyrics on Rap Genius


Kendrick knew he couldn’t take a 9-5 security job for long in a dangerous city like Compton which is dipped in drugs & violence.

He either would get shot while working or fall in depression from all the stress this kind of job impose you.
