Meanwhile I’m in these streets with everybody, I’m trying to get it
And she know they got me, I watch her feelings watch me
This line goes with the theme of the song in Kendrick’s reluctance to get deeper in a relationship.
He’s in the streets hustling, and he knows that the lifestyle is consuming him.
The thing that makes it worse is that his girl sees how bad the life he’s leading is, along with the fact that he’s being unfaithful to her.
It’s also important to note that when K Dot talks about hustling in the first person, he’s more often than not talking about hustling his music; not hustling with the classic connotation of illegal activity.
