Cartoons and cereal
The word “Cartoons” suggests the earlier stages of life where we only watched cartoons as children, however, Kendrick Lamar has not progressed and advanced.
“Cereal” also implies the early stages of the day where, we eat only breakfast, not lunch or dinner. Maybe this ideology suggests how he can’t progress as he is stuck in the early stages of life as result, of his father telling him to keep premature antics, as development could lead to the disrepute of his child-like innocence.
