Used to have the whole state of NC on my shoulder then I passed it
Off to the next, you unlucky bastard

from Kendrick Lamar (Ft. Rapper Big Pooh) – Thanksgiving Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Rapper Big Pooh used to be part of the North Carolina-based rap group Little Brother. When the group split in 2010, Rapper Big Pooh had this to say

I was just thinking about our own situation and then I realized, when groups leave, it’s just like when a person dies. Every person dies and a baby is born. So, as Little Brother calls it quits, there are other groups to not necessarily take our place but to keep the tradition going.
