I gave her books to read, fed her mind with knowledge
Gave her street smarts, shit you can't get in college

from 50 Cent (Ft. R. Kelly) – Could've Been You Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

50 teaches her both book smarts and street smarts so she will be fully equipped for life. It’s quite important to have academic intelligence, but street smarts helps you understand your surrounding and how to interact with people. Not everything you learn in college will help you get along in the real world.
