It should be:
“Put you in a real world
Take you out that green screen”

Kendrick is saying that the tree he gives her will take her out of the “green screen” (Chroma key compositing) that is used in movies for special effects and will put her in the real world,

which is a contradiction because tree should instead take you away from the real world and cause you to see imaginary things.

Another double entendre. Because Ab and his team are bringing the “real back,” us listeners need to spin the “reel back” and soak all the realness in until we completely absorbed it.

There has to be more to life than just getting bitches and drinking alcohol. Soul hopes he can live forever to discover the true meaning of life.

pouring fours is a reference to “lean” aka purple Drank or Codeine

A nice way to continue from the last line. Because Jay Rock is rhyming, he is “eating.” Or rather, his pockets are “eating” and the amount of money he makes has caused him to have “fat,” “obese,” pockets.

An adaption of the Bible verse (2 Thessalonians 3:10):
“For even when we were with you, we used to give you this order: if anyone is not willing to work, then he is not to eat, either.”

Kendrick is real. He doesn’t claim to be shit that he isn’t like a lot of rappers.

Kendrick is giving you music straight from the streets. This line may be a double entendre with “reporters” being “reporters” in the literal sense as well as “reporters” meaning “snitches” (who report crimes to the police).

There is also an interesting oxymoron because Kendrick is reporting himself and is “live” (or alive) but reporters generally “die” in the place he is reporting.

Jay Rock and his team kills shit in the studio so he sends flowers for the metaphorical “funeral”.

Irony is found in this line. To celebrate the fact that his mother stopped drinking, Ortiz drank himself.

"Poon poon so good I eat her through her panties" (A$AP Rocky – Take It Easy) | pending

Ferg is explaining that the Jamaican woman’s pussy (Pum Pum) is so good that he can eat (cunnilingus) her out without even removing her panties. [Self-Explanatory]

"Now everybody serenade the new faith of Kendrick Lamar / ..." (Kendrick Lamar – Compton) | rejected

[To the “Also Note”]
The past has nothing to do with him being K.Dot. He was always Kendrick Lamar. Actually, after the time frame of the album, he is still 17 years old. Kendrick didn’t change his name however until years after the events of the album.

Kendrick’s change from “K. Dot” to “Kendrick Lamar” is an entirely different story than the one he is telling in the album. After the album events, Kendrick just realized that he had to leave the streets alone and focus more on his morals. K. Dot is just his nickname and I’m sure his close friends still call him K. Dot to this day, rap name or not.

Stop mixing up the two stories.

Kendrick is referring here to the amount of people who ask him about the pressure after being passed the torch by Snoop, and being named King of West and savior of Hip-Hop. His response is, “I’ve always gave 100% when I rapped so don’t ask me about pressure.” He then puts emphasis on his ability to, with ease (with the grip of his fingertip, not his entire hand, his fingertip), hold the coast (West Coast) together by himself.

"Thats the sky is falling, the wind is calling / Stand for..." (Kendrick Lamar – The Jig Is Up (Dump'n)) | accepted

The Kendrick/J. Cole album title is NOT “Out Of The Sky.” If you listen to this interview, you will see that what Kendrick meant by “out the sky” is that he is not putting any release dates on the album, but they’ll just “drop” the album “out the sky”.

People love to misuse words on their blogs to create a sort of buzz, but it is deceptive and dishonest.

"But even when I rise, you'll see my red eyes" (Ab-Soul – Mayday) | accepted

This is a very complex double-entendre-filled line that connects with the previous bar and the bar afterwards, so excuse the lengthiness

  • Ab-Soul would rather get high (through smoking & in terms of success) while living at the bottom (in terms of success/financially) because it feels better to “come-up” after being in a low state

“A red-eye flight is any flight departing late at night and arriving early the next morning. The term red-eye derives from the fatigue symptom of having red eyes, which can be caused or aggravated by late-night travel”

  • Ab-Soul is playing on the words “high,” “rise,” and “red eyes” here. Double Entendre’s Galore:

  • “High” as in being in a “red-eye (plane) flight,” (planes are pretty high up in the sky) but also through smoking

  • “Rise” as in he is rising in height because he’s in a plane, rising in insobriety because he’s “high” off drugs, and arising/waking up from the “last flight of the night”
  • “Red Eyes” as in he is “high” through smoking and also meaning he was in a “red-eye flight”

So you can see why this is so long, blame Ab-Soul, this is some complicated, deep shit.

"People think that I'm crazy, just cause I wanna be alone ..." (The Roots – Clock with No Hands) | rejected

Should be:
She says perhaps being lonely is better because that way, you can’t be hurt by others or hurt others either

"The end is near" (Big Sean – 100) | accepted

Kendrick believes that in a world that will soon be coming to an end, people should focus on bigger issues than the presidential election. God probably cares little about who becomes the next president of the United States in a world that the devil (according to Kendrick) controls.

It wouldn’t be hard for Kendrick to pretend to be interested in politics and in the presidential campaign just to be “politically correct,” but he would rather be real with himself and with others. He would rather spread what he believes to be true even if it could be harmful to the youth.
As they say:

"Super bad chicks and they all up in my kryptonite" (Joey BADA$$ – Where It'$ At) | accepted

This may also be a play on words with the word “kryptonite” also being “crib tonight”

The lyric lacks consistency.

If there is an “uhh” after “bomb ass head"
There should be an "uhh” right before “bomb” and after “kind that don’t stink”

Otherwise the line should just be:

“Bomb ass head ‘til she can’t blink” —> in order to remain consistent
