The pressure made him read the Boof of David, which is part of the Bible. It’s also DJ Quik’s eighth studio album.

He means psalms

Are the 2 saying there is no book of David morons? Don’t speak on things you don’t know; it only makes you look even more stupid than you would if you were silent. Book of David is Psalms of the Bible. While he may not have written every Chapter, Psalms is associated with his rule, therefore his book.

With society, the driver seat the first one to get killed M.A.A.d City by Kendrick Lamar (Ft. MC Eiht) 4

Since the driver is in the front of a car, in any scenario of a shooting he is usually hit. In this case he was killed.

When the driver of a car is killed, everyone else in it is sitting ducks.

This is reminiscent of Menace II Society:

This could also refer to the city’s violent defense of the status quo. Building on the opening lines of the song, Kendrick suggests that the ones driving social change (i.e. those in “the driver seat”) earn the enmity of Pirus and Crips alike, leading to an environment that kills progress before it’s begun.

I quietly hope for change
When violence is the rhythm,
Good Kid by Kendrick Lamar (Ft. Pharrell Williams) 1

In the hood, gang and police violence is a normal occurrence, but Kendrick wants a change.

He does so “quietly” because if he were to speak out on it and try to make change the government/cops would harass him.

Look inside these walls and you see them having withdrawals Good Kid by Kendrick Lamar (Ft. Pharrell Williams) 1

Withdrawals are the negative physical and/or psychological effects of ceasing a drug habit.

If you could see inside Kendrick’s mind (the facades people put up to hide their true selves are often called “walls”), you would see that his mind is currently trying to escape the dangerous environment he is in. While trying to cleanse himself of those influences, they are constantly trying to get back in (hence the withdrawals).

He’s also literally trapped — inside the “walls” of the city plagued by gang violence, and he is recognizing that his actions and the actions of those around him (i.e. gangbanging and drug using) have him already cast as a prisoner on his way to a life toiling in Compton.

Lay with a snitch, die with a coward Sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst by Kendrick Lamar 2

Good character is spoiled by bad company — so you may get killed along with the snitch (popularly seen as cowards).

Alludes to the bible with the snake corrupting Adam making him sin, since Kendrick is around such bad influences constantly it could poison his strong character as well.

What if today was the rapture, and you completely tarnished
The truth will set you free, so to me be completely honest
Sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst by Kendrick Lamar 2

IF the world ended today via the Rapture, only the good people would go to heaven. So he says live your life honest and free, so when God takes your life, you end up in Heaven.

“The truth will set you free” — (John 8:32)
