The tithes probably go to the projects

from Kendrick Lamar (Ft. MC Eiht) – M.A.A.d City Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Once you would make money off of the victim you’d have to give most of it back to the projects to be able to buy more guns and ammunition. So the cycle continues and you never really catch up.

Tithing is giving 10% of your money to the church. Instead of churches, the tithes Kendrick is talking about are taxes going to the projects.
