Ill education baby

from Kendrick Lamar (Ft. Pharrell Williams) – Good Kid Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

A popular theme in Kendrick’s music is the lack of education that young men and women living in poverty receive. This lack of education inevitably commits them to a spiraling cycle of gang violence that often claims their lives. In this case, it’s not just a lack of education that’s the problem but that the kids are being taught the wrong things. They grow up wanting to join these gangs and thinking that violence is the best way to solve their problems.
