Some may say this is ironic but, it's really not. The key word here is "Pursuit". On Monday Kid Cudi checked himself into rehab for depression and suicidal urges. Although the song is about happiness you can feel the struggle. Even in the tone of how he sings it sounds a little sad. I guess he has always been searching for happiness and thought he would get it once he became successful but, "Everything that's shine ain't always gonna be gold (hey)"

Now if one is to look into the lyrics from a literal narrative, it is clearly about an astronaut who has the misfortune of being on a fatal mission. The spacecraft he is inhabiting has failed, he will not make it back to Earth, his mission is a failure and he will perish in space, never to hold his loved ones again, never able to say his final farewells to his loving family and friends.
Perhaps the astronaut story is but a metaphor for someone who feels alienated, who can't quite fit into the crowd like everyone else, and is finding trouble assimilating comfortably into society. There are various emotions on display throughout the song, from regret, to fear, to sorrow, to selflessness.
This is where Kendrick takes a stance against new artist using ghostwriter. There was a time when having a ghost writer was not accepted in Hip Hop. It seems like the new generation of rapper have become more accepting of ghostwriting. Kendrick believes that new artist show stand behind their work and honor the code of Hip Hop. He encourages new artist to enter with their own creativity ideas and if any help is received then proper attribution should be given. The funny think about this is that Kendrick stared out as a ghostwriter so he know which artist are using them.
I couldn't find the Million dollar donation but, he did donate to a couple of schools totaling over 100K: 1) Drake Donates $75,000 to Troubled High School That Meek Mill Attended - radio.com/...udio/ 2) Drake Donates $30,000 To Build Computer Schools In Jamaica - www.samaritanmag.com/...maica
