this line went over my head on GKMC until I read it on Rap Genius.


"Kendrick poetically justifies why his writing is vital to hip-hop. To explain this, he sneaks 4 literary mechanisms into the inner-workings of his rhymes (punctuation, letter, margin, metaphor):

“make sure my punctuation is curved”, i.e. a comma, which is curved, instead of a period, which would signify a full stop. i.e. Kendrick doesn’t stop!
Kendrick “lives his life in the margin”, which is literally the small blank space at the end of the lines he writes. Metaphorically he lives his life in the periphery outside the masses.
The genius of that metaphor proves his dedication to his craft and proves his raps are beyond average.

“Proof,” as in proofread. One often writes in the margin of the page when he or she is proofreading. But also, a mathematical ‘proof’ to show the answer and conclusion to your equation. Looks like Kendrick’s equation here is sound"





Kendrick is underrated writer.

Pretty sure that's not what he meant at all when he said his punctuation curves.

EDIT: Maybe, now that I look at both lines together.

Any GKMC can't be a classic. It's a year old.

the black album is not a classic, it's a shameless ploy to make money. retirement my ass.

don't get me wrong, the album has some great songs, but to me it was only great because of its context, potentially his last album...which it wasn't.

I'd take RD, BP1, IML v1 over the black album

You're high out of your mind. Kanye's discography is legendary.
