I can't turn the other cheek

from Kendrick Lamar – HiiiPower Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The Bible teaches in Luke 6:29: “Whoever hits you on the cheek, offer him the other also; and whoever takes away your coat, do not withhold your shirt from him either.”

Kendrick — inspired by Huey Newton — can’t allow his enemies to get at him that easily, he has to rebel against them.
