Now all the teachers couldn't reach me

from Jay Z – December 4th Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Jay-Z went to George Westinghouse Institute of Technology in Downtown Brooklyn for high school, along with Biggie Smalls and Busta Rhymes.

The line also recalls 2Pac’s on If I Die 2nite

Addicted to drama so even mama couldn’t raise me
Even the preacher and all my teachers couldn’t reach me
