Came up with both parents they was clappin for me
High school graduate college course dabbled with
Still not a enough to save a nigga from the savages

from Gillie Da Kid (Ft. Pusha T) – Tryna Get Me One Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Contrary to popular belief, Pusha actually grew up in a middle class suburb in Virginia Beach after moving from The Bronx. He graduated high school and tried his hand at college.

However being one of the first black families to grow up in a white neighbourhood, it was hard to fit in. With himself and his brother No Malice turning to the ghetto to “fit into society” — thus the drug dealing affiliations spawning from that. (Their uncle didn’t help much either, he was already a dealer which is mentioned in the next line)
