On DAMN.'s final track 'DUCKWORTH.', Kendrick Lamar explains that his now-TDE boss Anthony 'Top Dawg' Tiffith once thought about killing Kendrick's dad Ducky.

At the time Top Dawg was a gangbanger in Watts, and Ducky worked behind the counter of a local KFC. Kendrick lays out the scenario in the track:

Ducky was well-aware They robbed the manager and shot a customer last year He figured he'd get on these niggas' good sides Free chicken every time Anthony posted in line Two extra biscuits, Anthony liked him And then let him slide; they didn't kill him In fact, it look like they're the last to survive Whoever thought the greatest rapper would be from coincidence? Because if Anthony killed Ducky Top Dawg could be servin' life While I grew up without a father and die in a gunfight
9th Wonder produced the track, and he confirmed it was a true story in a Complex interview.

He said yes, it's a true story. That's the thing that's been going around on the net. Top Dawg has confirmed that it's a true story. The beauty of that is, he chose to tell that story, and we're like four albums in. Usually, people will tell that story the first time.
We wonder what Kendrick has in the tank for album five.
