My pops said I needed a job I thought I believed him
Security guard for a month and ended up leaving

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

Meaning

He thought thats the path he wanted to take with his life. What his dad was telling him to do. But thats not the way it happened and he left his job after only a month.

He also speaks about it in P&P

I used to have a nine to five
Fresh out of school that was ‘05
That bitch was racist, got me fired
Ever since then I had no job
