This is a response to Kendrick’s ‘’I’m the king of New York‘’ line from ‘’Control‘’. NY rappers are too busy trying to sound Southern so due to lack of the NY sound Troy feels like the city’s lost right now. He believes this is the reason an outsider, Kendrick who is from LA, has the audacity to ‘'front’‘ like he’s the king of a city he’s not from. (That’s not really what Kendrick was trying to say but I digress ..)
During his prime The Notorious B.I.G. was the undisputed king of NY and after his passing Jay Z took the crown and ran with it — Troy claims to be up next. Troy gotta put it down for his city and not let a ‘'weirdo rapper’‘ like Kendrick take his crown.
