The story goes back to the K.Dot days where Kendrick is with his homies driving around their city in a white Toyota. In that Toyota, his homies have a pack of blacks and a beat CD.
This track does not leave much to the imagination, but gives a sense of a typical night Kendrick spent growing up with his homies driving around town, not a care in the world, freestyling and living life to the fullest.
Nothing like getting high while driving and spitting freestyles in the backseat to the amusement of your closest friends.
This track depicts a moment of joy, peace, and life…only it might be too good to be true…or better yet the calm before the storm.
