Backed by an old school beat featuring a gritty guitar sample and slow, subtle, but groovy drum patterns, Pusha T proclaims, "This is timeless" as he paints a picture of hood gangsta life before handing things off to Kendrick Lamar. Kendrick's verse is dark and socially conscious with intricate wordplay, and he pushes his voice to a harsh tone that fits with the song. The black-and-white video captures a certain nostalgia, as the two walk the streets of Compton.
According to urban dictionary, Nosetalgia is like nostalgia for your nose:
When you encounter a familiar smell, bringing back old memories
Oh wow, the smell of crappy hotdogs and fried dough just gave me Nosetalgia; Remember how last year we threw up on the roller coaster at the country fair?
