I know you wonder why your mother does the things that she do
Well it’s not because she doesn’t love you
It’s because she grew up in something they call foster care
That’s when strangers raise you your mom’s not there

from Brother Ali – All You Need Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The song goes into a different direction here, as Ali gives an explanation to why his first wife acted the way she did. He tells us that she grew up in a foster home because her own parents failed to look after her.
