Let 'em reveal how much it cost for this life controlling my vice
No way hell no, uh uh,
Kendrick is saying that there is much money spent to keep up with the cars, women, and the partying he does. It’s like a demon he has to control, and it breaks his wallet. He doesn’t want anyone to know how much it costs him, because it probably is alot.
