See the truth is, they wanna know how close me and Dre and Snoop is
Or how the shoe fits when they choose this to beat 2Pac but truth I give
Two shits 'bout expectations or critics hating, shit, I just put moms on vacation
An adaptation of Dr. Dre’s line from “What’s the Difference” In that case it went:
Nowadays, people want to know how close he is to the West Coast legends, if he’s the next 2Pac and maybe if they can off him in his prime, like they did the latter. Kendrick’s not concerned with the expectations though, or the critics. He’s more concerned with helping out people and family, like his mom.
