On “FEEL.,” Kendrick catalogs the wide range of feelings, particularly the negative ones, that his stardom has elicited.
He feels that nobody is looking out for him, yet cites a desire for self-isolation. He boasts about his status in the rap game, but the very same industry that he dominates is full of toxicity. Despite having been at the peak of his critical and commercial success in the past few years, Kendrick is still struggling emotionally, interpersonally, and spiritually—perhaps as much as ever.
Kendrick routinely opens up about the darker aspects of his life on his music—depression, which he has grappled with ever since becoming an adolescent, and self-hate are just several topics he’s discussed before.
